100 lbs. I’m hoping i could do it. They say you lose very slow with a revision. Some people don’t lose at all. Staying hopeful.

You got this, one thing is for sure with the revision we are more determined than ever before so just keep focused on your goal follow the steps and you’ll get to where you want to go. I’d be looking to hear your success story of losing the 100lbs became coincidentally that is my goal as well and I believe with exercise and following the plan we got this. Wishing you well

I am a little over 4 months out from my revision and close to goal. At first I was scared that the revision wasn't going to work because it didn't feel like I had the same restrictions as I did with the sleeve and I am able to eat things I couldn't with the sleeve> With the sleeve I felt more restriction but as I heal more I feel it more and things have been moving along great and I am pleased with my weight loss. It is slower as I am so close to goal (only about 4 more to go) and I had my revision per reflux. So happy to have the reflux and GERD cured and am having no problems whatsoever in that area. I am happy with my revision and growing to love it more every day! I still walk 30 minutes and log my food daily. I focus on maintaining Water and Protein levels as I notice this is what makes the scale move for me! Good luck! You are going to do great!

Mine is scheduled for this upcoming Monday and I’m nervous. I’m trying to be optimistic but I’m so scared because I’ve been here before. I’m glad I found this site!

I also had the revision for GERD, Gastritis and Esophagitis and I'm very happy that all that has been resolved. But I'm also very happy with the weight loss. As you can see below, I gained almost all my initial weight that I had lost after the sleeve. I felt like a complete failure and a fool for having thrown away my chance at a normal weight. I know this revision is my second chance to do it right and learn from my mistakes.

Here are my stats over my 6 year journey.

Highest weight May 2012 - 222 lbs.

Gastric sleeve surgery weight November 2014 - 212 lbs.

Lowest weight post sleeve May 2015 - 151 post op 6 months (61 lbs. lost)

Highest weight prior to revision surgery January 2019 - 205 lbs. (54 lbs. gained)

Weight day of revision surgery October 2020 - 185 lbs.

Current weight March 2021 (5 months post op) - 138 lbs. (47 lbs. lost)

I hope that I never have to add a line that says I've gained weight back again!!!!

Good luck on your journey!!!!

I was just revised from the sleeve to the bypass on the 23rd and my pain is minimal. Doing my best to get fluids in. I gained 10 pounds during my hospital stay so hoping that will come off pretty fast. I haven't had any incidences of reflux so I'm super happy about that.
