I’m a previous lap-band patient gone haywire, thus causing it to be removed several years ago so I’m larger now than when I had it placed. I’m going to have surgery. Researching options and costs right now. How many of you would recommend the mini bypass? If so, why and is there a difference in percentage of weight lost and cost? I know that it has less chance of surgical complications. Thanks in advance.

Hi Heather,

I'm in Week 5 after having the MGB/OAGB/Omega Loop Bypass (for those confused, these are all names for the same procedure - talk about a branding problem!)

I detailed my process for choosing the MGB over RNY and VSG here:

Feel free to ask any questions you may have :)

Thank you! I literally just asked another question on this forum to the bypass group if they could get the mini vs the RNY would they and why. I appreciate this. I hate to hear that this is limited in the states though. I really don’t want to travel outside fir my procedure due to my history of prior complications.
