Revision sleeve to bypass w hiatal hernia repair



Recommended Posts

I finally had my surgery on 6/24, (postponed from 4/1, thank u Covid). This surgery went 100000 times better then, then my first surgery in 11/2016 w the sleeve. I had a completely different doctor, hospital staff & support system thru my doctors office, this time. I woke up w achey pain, nothing to severe. The incision where they went in for the hernia and a lower right abdomen one were kinda sore, but nothing Ice packs couldn’t help. Came home the next day, & still nothing to severe pain wise to use anything higher then Tylenol. I’m nervous, to get over the recovery period and on to losing weight. (The sleeve was a fail for me and only lost 40lbs on it). But also excited and ready for this next chapter & life style change. :)

Congratulations on your new beginning! I have the same background as you with having the sleeve, now the hiatal hernia with GERD, and in the process of having a bypass revision.

With the revision, did your surgeon say how much weight to be expected to lose? I didnt lost much with the sleeve either. :(

He did, but I can’t remember. I go Wednesday for my recheck and all ask what the % is.
