Maybe worth spending six months with a bariatric dietician or nutritionist see how you go?

If you don't have any restricition anymore though, maybe worth your while to see a surgeon about your revision options.

I agree with going to the NUT and getting your eating habits under control. If you don't do the head work, GB will in the same way.

GB and people with sugar addiction don't go well. You may want to ask for a CT scan to see what damage you did to your sleeve. If none then i say, proceed with the NUT.

There is no "reset" in the sleeve physically.... once it's stretched it's stretched. You can however reset your eating and thinking.

I wish people would take the time to spell out a word or two rather than NUT and GB, - like that. There are a lot of us new to the website who aren't familiar with all the abbreviations.

that's why I try to remember to spell things out (there are lots of acronyms in the bariatric community!) - but GB is gastric bypass (also called RNY) and NUT is nutritionist.

I would go for bypass if the sleeve didn't do enough
