@Tina Leo I am having a revision on March 16 also. I had lap-band then removal 6 years later. Sleeve 2 years ago and now to DS due to Bile reflux, GERD, gastritis and need hernia repair and adhesions removed. I am so nervous! I hope your hanging in there, the count down is on for us. 😁

Best of luck to you! I'm nervous too - but we've done this once (in your case - more than once!) and we can do it again! Let me know how things go. If you'd rather connect on FB (I'm not here super often) - Tina Leonard (Girard, IL) please add me - we can chat thru messenger!

YOU GOT THIS! :)

Good luck to all fixing to have surgery!!! That’s awesome! And the ones who have had the revision already I would love to hear how things are going! You don’t hear much from people on revisions and how they are doing!

Revision is such an interesting topic! I'm hoping I can get the rest of my weight off on my own, but my Surgeon and Endo are talking about some sort of revision that might help my reactive hypoglycemia. I hope everyone does well with their revision and appointments! I would also love to hear how everyone is doing after!

Any updates from you ladies that had the revisions completed recently? Would love to hear about your journey

I had bypass revision on Jan 11,21 which included a common chanel resection as well as making the original pouch smaller. I have lost 62 lbs and am doing amazingly well post op. No vomiting, nausea, or heartburn, I still have 3 weeks left of taking a daily prilosec but then I will be just on my bariatric Vitamin and Calcium chew. I was able to stop taking my only prescription medication for high blood pressure. I go to the gym about 4 times a week and my back pain has decreased significantly. My comfortable goal is to loose 40 more pounds but would love to loose 45 just to make sure.

Have lost +25 lbs since surgery 3/16. Been feeling good - less tired than the first couple weeks. Had a weird abdominal muscle cramp that lasted 4ish days - surgeon's nurse was able prescribe some Flexiril, which helped and is now much improved - if I twist just so it twinges but not like that first time. I have taken no BP meds since surgery and haven't felt like my pressures were high. Recheck with the surgeon on Thursday this week. The sun is shining. I'm feeling good, and everything seems to be moving in the right direction!

Grahamco - I hope your advocate is getting somewhere! Fingers crossed. 🤞

Had Gastric Bypass on Jan 2015, Just had a Overstich revision surgery this Tuesday May 11. I was in some pain and was tired the first few days. I was on a clear liquid for a week and now on full liquids for 3 weeks, than eventually soft foods. I was fine the first few days but now feel weak, exhausted, headache. Not much hunger just sick feeling. I did not have to be on a preop liquid diet but I did cut down some. I basically went from two thousand calories to like 500. Tryin my best but this is harder than my first surgery. I'm in Michigan. Will keep you guys updated, I have to do this regardless!!! Good luck you guys!!!

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
