VSG to MGB?? Was your revision a success?



Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi Everyone

I am scheduled to have a revision from a VSG to a Mini Gastric Bypass in 8 weeks. I have weight regain and issues with reflux. I am extremely nervous about the surgery - way more nervous than when I had my sleeve. I would love to know if anyone else has had this conversion and know if the surgery was a success or if you have any regrets.

Thanks 🙂

They are very different surgeries. The short answer is yes, I've had success. The side effects of the MGB are horrible at times but I've learned to live with it. I'm 5 years post op ( I think) . I've lost 32 lbs with the MGB but I keep it off by doing IF 6 days a week and running 3 miles 4-5 x per week. No regrets.

Thanks Band07 and congrats on keeping it off!
