Pregnancy before or after a revision



Recommended Posts

Need the opinion of those who are planning or have planned to start a family with a bariatric procedure..

my spouse currently has RNY that was done in 2015 but she has regained about 100 plus pounds out of the 155 pounds she dropped after getting RNY. Now she wants to start a family but i don’t know of it is safe or unsafe to plan for pregnancy now that she has regained all the weight. Would it be better for her to get a revision done to correct the weight and then plan pregnancy or should we have a baby and then do a revision? My overall concern is my spouse’s well being and i know how obesity plays a major role in pregnancies and the high risk it carries which can be very harmful for a unborn baby. Any advise would be appreciated as i am at a crossroads but don’t know what to do.

Speak to both surgeon and OBGYN

OBGYN! No way anyone should answer this = This is a Doc s decision and unless you are a doctor or have stayed at a Holiday Inn - Nobody is qualified to answer this

Everyone is right only your doctor can tell you what is best for your health. I would personally have the baby first as it would be better to have revision after and out on weight again and so on.( but that's my preference knowing my situation

I know this post is old but please lose the weight first
I had vsg basically to bring back fertility and it worked I got pregnant
But during my pregnancy I gained 100 lbs
Then I was over weight while pregnant
I went 38 weeks and 5 days
Delivered a stillborn..
My heart is broken and now I'm on a journey to lose weight again and ttc I will never put any child or myself at risk like that again

Getting pregnant so soon after surgery is one of the reason I’m having to get a revision now. If I had to do it all again, I’d have the child then the surgery unless it was dangerous for me to do so. Having a baby really changes your diet, body, and limits the time truly needed to dedicate yourself to a healthier you in the beginning. If you have the surgery first, I would wait at least 3-4 years before having a child.
