Revision not enough weight loss.



Recommended Posts

Im new here , but feel like i need to find a pal to chat with to maybe went through some things like me. Go first gastric bypass 2011 after having heart failure. Went from 550 lbs down to 254 lbs. I was so happy . Became a teacher ect. Then from 2013 to 2018, i ended up needing 3 surgeries. Weight started to come back. Then in 2018 got injured at work, needed two surgeries on my knee. One being total knee replacement. I got revision for i had put weight back on from being down from leg. However, i didnt lose that much from revision and fill like ive lost myself again. Im at 295 and really want to at least loose 40 to 50 more but have plateaued and kind given up . Had my revision done 8 months ago.

I am new here as well and I am considering revising to the bypass from having the sleeve last year in May. I have vertigo and very much confined to my bed accept for when I am working, which is quite difficult. However, I have been stalled for quite some time and have picked back up 30 of the pounds I lost. I started at 326 and the scales 279 now, I am seriously considering the bypass. Some days I can eat more than I should and other days I don't eat nothing.I do a lot of bored snacking sine I work from home. I wold love to follow your journey and perhaps be each others support.

Hi there,

When you had your revision, did you go back through the post-op stages (liquids, purees, soft food, regular food, etc.) and did you go back to the basic diet you used for weight loss the first time?

Yes, I did go through the stages again. I was losing a good amount in the beginning. I dropped 60 lbs with the revision. Ive just put a little back on since 8 months ago. I put back on 10 of those. Ive been told it could be from me having 2 more surgeries since then, but am worried so trying to make sure i stay on track. I went through the stages however, i want to say not to get discouraged for there isnt huge changes like there was with the first one. It also took a bit more of a toll on me for i have gotten older since the last one. One great thing this time was no drain hoses. Dont know if you experienced those , but they are terrible.
