Sleeve to bypass revision- weight lost??



Recommended Posts

Hello

I had the sleeve 5 years ago and lost 70 lbs. My goal was to lose 90. And the past 6 months I have gained back 25. I want to stop this in it's tracks!! I am scheduled for revision to bypass next month. I get very conflicting stories on expected weight loss. Dr says I should lose half what I did with sleeve, the video Dr Weiner has says no loss is expected. I would like to know from actual patient who has had this revision what their weight loss was after revision...

I would love to know too! I had the sleeve in 2017, developed GERD, and hiatal hernia. Surgeon recommends revision to bypass now to help with acid reflux and promote additional weight loss.

*Question for you; what insurance requirements did you have to do for a revision to bypass?

I haven't had this done, but I'm guessing it might depend on whether or not you still have a lot of weight to lose. There are people who've had the sleeve who don't develop GERD until they're two or three years out, at which point they've already lost a lot of weight - so they may not have much more to lose (and don't....). I do know of someone on another forum, actually, who did lose a fair amount of weight after her revision - although I honestly don't know how common that is.

You can lose weight but it will be up to you. It is not at all like the sleeve so be prepared. Today I am 1 month post op revised to bypass. I started at 180 my original goal weight and weigh 167.8 today. I would rather have my sleeve but it is what it is.

I still have burning in the morning so at this point I still have GERD.

I got a sleeve 7 years ago. Lost a good amount of weight then gained a lot back. (326 to 209 to 300) Revised to DS one month ago. With the transition diet I started in January, Pre-OP and Post-OP diets, I've lost 78 lbs. I've seen stats on expected weight loss from a DS. It is 85 to 100% of your excess weight. If you follow nutritional guidelines, you'll get to a normal or overweight class.

I've been told each operation triggers your body's response of a lack of hunger. Also, the required diet effectively reset my pouch. I'm feeling full after small meals. I used to be able to drink just about any amount of Water. Now I feel limited even with water. This has made the weight loss quick and easy. I'm taking this revision as an opportunity to correct my past nutritional mistakes.

I sent you a private message. Tomorrow is actually my revision surgery. From sleeve to bypass for Gerd.
