I am having a revision and hernia repair on June 19th, I gained about 50 pounds since my lowest weight after sleeve surgery. I feel like I’m always hungry and wondering if I’ll lose more weight and feel restriction again after my revision? I am getting revised to fix GERD but would like to reach my goal weight which I never did with my sleeve.

Everyone is different. I have read where some people have restriction after bypass. I never thought that I would not but so far there is nothing and I am not trying to overeat to find out, lol. I don't feel hunger at this point. I am sure you would lose weight but I am hearing its not easy for some as you might think . It has been totally different for me this time. I do not feel like I had a WLS, maybe that will change when I am all healed up inside.

Ur welcome. That’s good that your starting to feel better. The tubes are what I’m worried about. 😳idk y. My mom had drainage tubes when she had surgery and they grossed me out, so that probably why & what’s making me the most nervous.

My tube was pinned to my gown so I really didn't see it or feel it for that matter. Don't let it bother you. It really isn't that big of a deal and there is no guarantee you would even have one.

Can you describe what that full sensation feels like to you ? I ate the 2 oz of chicken and a few bites of corn. I didn't feel anything but I do burp when eating so I am taking that as my que to stop I guess.

I took a drink 30 min later and had pain in the right side of my rib cage. Not sure what it was.

I mostly feel bored with eating, sometimes it feels like the VSG full pressure and sometimes it feels like everything could come back up with one more bite.

I am weighing in at 172.2 this morning. I ate a 1/2 cup of cereal for breakfast this morning. I should have made an egg but I was being lazy and now I am not feeling too hot . I am not sure if it is the antibiotic I am taking ( I got an infection from a cat scratch) or if is the cereal . I wont be doing that again for awhile, ugh.

I still have some swelling and I am hoping it will be gone by next week for my sons wedding on the 20th. I am also starting to feel a little worn down and tired. I guess it is all catching up with me now.

When I woke up this morning I was feeling the burning of acid, sigh. Hoping its a fluke. I will be pretty upset to have put myself through all of this for nothing, especially when I didn't want to do it in the first place.

Goodness... it’s so soon. I’m betting it was a combo of the Cereal and antibiotics. My motto is going to be this too shall pass haha. I hope the acid is not an issue for you. If they fixed the hernia then it shouldn’t be. Give it a bit more time and see what happens. I’m still waiting for my surgery date.

Yeah I will skip Cereal from now on in the morning.

I was feeling pretty good today and BAM I feel like I need a nap and I have lost all energy. I am thinking I need to get my calories up a bit more.

Yeah I am trying not to be alarmed with this hernia but I do have a bulge and its bigger then a large egg in the area of the drain and stitches. I am seeing the Dr on the 23rd.

Hopefully it’s not. Hernia, and most likely just blood and swelling. Try the premiere shakes in the morning, then later when you’ve healed more watery oatmeal or something. You may not be able to drink milk so soon or at least if you do drink skim or 1%. I drink almond milk unsweetened and I love it...I hope my pouch likes it after my surgery. Have you had a chance to check out all mini me in Tennessee a videos...she’ll inspire you.

I weighed in at 171.2 this morning. I am having problems with Vitamins and calcium chews. I quit taking my bariatric vitamins because they have and extra 45 Iron and were causing issues in the restroom which I cant have . So I am taking 2 Flinestones a day at least until I get in to my Dr. appointment in 10 days. I also am dumping on the Calcium chews. I had one after lunch today thinking I would not dump with the food WRONG ! So I have some hard pill ones that I will be taking starting tomorrow.

I may have felt some kind of restriction at lunch. I had a Smart Ones beef with mashed potatoes and gravy. I ate about 6 of the 9 oz and not too long after I felt it. I will have to be careful and eat slower from now on just to be safe. All was pretty okay until I ate the calcium, so glad I didn't vomit. I took a nap curled in a ball instead.

So sorry. Ugh! They e are right when they say every single person. Is different. I dumped with everything I ate no matter what! I hope the new surgery or should I say re surgery fixes that for me. Hang in there...it’s still early xo

Exactly the same feeling for me. Plus if I dare take even a sip of liquid after a meal it causes pain for me. I learned quickly and now I wait at least 45 mins to an hour.

I changed surgeons (possibly). I had a first opinion, decided to go with my second opinion, then decided to go back to my first opinion on the advice of my gastroenterologist. I’m waiting for my insurance referral, then I have a few questions to ask him. I want to make sure he either shortens or lengthens (not sure which) the RNY so I don’t have the issues I hadwith the first bypass. All I wanted was the Nissen Fundoplication for my reflux but because I have a 10mm hiatel hernia and a mass I have to have the bypass and stomach removal to fix all issues. I told doc if they can’t do it in July, then we have to wait until end of September or October because my son is getting married in September and I don’t want to be in pain or sick, or in case there are complications, I don’t want to ruin his wedding.

I must say though, I’ve been eating like a bypass patient so the last six weeks to get ready and to help with my reflux situation. It’s a huge life change for sure.
