Any re-sleevers out there?



Recommended Posts

I was sleeved in May 2014. My top weight was 252 (the day of surgery) and I lost down to 165 in a little over a year’s time. I have since gained weight and am at 220. I’m extremely depressed about it, yet nothing I am doing is helping.

I’ve read that some have undergone a re-sleeve after some weight gain and I’m interested in finding anyone who has had this done and if so, has it been successful a 2nd time and who has re-sleeved you? I moved to Iowa three years ago and can’t find anyone who does it. HELP!

I found a study about it. Apparently some people have had success with it. It's called laparoscopic re-sleeve gastrectomy. I didn't quickly find anyone doing it. Can you talk to your original surgeon?

Most people get the bypass for regain and I do know someone doing well with that.
