No Restriction - VSG to RNY



Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I was revised from VSG (Aug 2019) to RNY (Sept 2021). I was wondering if it is typical not to feel any restriction. I am 2.5 weeks post-op and I can easily consume 100g of Protein since the day I returned home from surgery which amazes me as I could not consume 100g of protein with VSG until 2 months post-op. When I get hungry, I eat and I stop when I feel I've had enough and I always measure/track so I know exactly how much I'm consuming. I never feel full. I just feel not hungry. It's difficult to explain. Is it typical not to feel restriction? When does restriction typically come or does it at all? Do you ever feel "full" as with VSG? TIA :)

Totally normal. I didn't feel restriction until I hit solid foods. I feel restriction like crazy now. I can be full from one piece of string cheese, or a small pickle... Etc. for hours. I think liquids and purees to some extent are like slider foods.

Very typical and not talked about enough. However you can still feel fullness just of a different kind. Occasionally I can still feel the VSG restriction with very solid things. But now it’s mostly a lower abdomen heaviness and disinterest in the food that warns me when I’m done. Be patient and you’ll notice your signals eventually ❤️

With RNY gastric bypass, "not hungry" is "full".

Getting a chest pain, hick-ups, or "the foamies" is a sign that your pouch is overfull or something is stuck. You can up-chuck to remove it. Regurgitation is not the same a vomiting.

Definitely don't feel the same restriction I did when I had the sleeve. I dont know if I'm just being conservative when I eat or if I truly don't have a full feeling now.

Interesting post. Happy you all shared. I have my revision from VSG to RNY bypass next week and I am so anxious to know how my body with adjust. I have terrible GERD now plus have gained and lost the same 30 pounds for 2 years. I had VSG in March 2017.

Many people say they don’t feel restriction until AFTER soft foods. Some of us though (assuming I am not the only one) are able to eat more at any given stage since the beginning of the process. According to the NP nothing is wrong and I didn’t do anything wrong my pouch is just a little bigger. I just had to measure my food and stop either when I felt satisfied or when the food was gone (I did not wait until I felt full). This had worked out fine for me. It took some getting used to, stopping before I felt full but after waiting a few minutes I realized I was satisfied anyways. Most likely you just haven’t felt your restriction because of cut nerves or because the food is not solid BUT if you are like me you will be fine too. I am almost 9 months out and I am about ten pounds from goal. Now I see you are bypass. I guess the same advice to measure and stop when you are done applies though.

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
