Hi! In one week, I am undergoing a revision from VSG to RNY due to reflux and esophagitis.

I had my VSG in 2017 and lost 100 pounds in nine months. Then, whoops, I got pregnant. After years of being told my ovaries didn't function, I hadn't worried enough about protection after surgery 😂 however, right before finding out I was expecting, I'd gone through lots of testing because of persistent reflux, including a test where you keep a probe in your throat and stomach for several days to measure your acid levels. Mine were high enough that my surgeon immediately started planning for a revision.

Then life got in the way and brought me a beautiful baby girl, and before I knew it, she was over a year old and I was still constantly fighting reflux despite lots of meds. I finally went back and saw my surgeon again and was scheduled asap!

It is very surreal to be back on the liver shrink diet and doing everything I did several years ago. I am also nervous; I purposely chose the VSG hoping to avoid long term Vitamin or nutrition issues from malabsorption. I know so many choose RNY and love it, but it was definitely not my first choice....but here I am! I'd like to stay on track after surgery and the forum I used to belong to has very little activity now. I'm enjoying getting to read up on what's happening here!
