I had revision surgery on Nov.8th sleeve to bypass due to Gerd and a Hiliatal Hernia. After doing some research it suggest that revision patients tend to loose weight at a slower pace than other weight loss patients. Has anyone else heard that? I’ve lost a total of 35lbs since surgery and Tuesday will be 2 months.

I’ve heard the same thing. My surgeon said because our body has gone thru a weight loss surgery before, so it knows what to expect. I’m trying to remain positive and force myself to be more active in hopes it won’t be true. I’m almost two weeks post op and lost 16 lbs since surgery. I’m sure it’s mostly Water weight since I’m still on liquids.

At least your surgeon told you I had to do my own research. Post surgery I came hime from the hospital heavy than I went in and in 2 weeks I had lost almost 25lbs then the 3rd, 4th, 5th no weight loss then the 6th week it started back REALLY slow I’m up to 35lb weight loss was expecting a lot more by now. I’ll keep an eye on it the next couple of weeks if nothing changes I’ll be speaking with my surgeon and my nutritionist immediately! Good luck your just getting started so don’t get discouraged

Nothing wrong with 35lb in two months regardless of the surgery date weight. What had you expected to lose by now?

If your surgery date weight was on the lower side or you lost a lot of weight pre surgery you aren't immediately going to see big losses.

It would help tailor responses if you filled in your profile data...weight, height etc.

To be honest with you I thought with the bypass it would fall off, not realistic huh.. lol my surgery date was on the 8th of Nov and I did not loose but about 7 or 8 lbs pre surgery. I didnt understand that either didn’t cheat or anything so this whole journey has really got me baffled

For you start weight I think you are doing pretty great. Some will of lost for the amount of time, others may have lost more, its very individual as we are all different.

Set realistic goals and Celebrate your weight loss so far.

That's interesting. I didn't know that. Still, 35 pounds in 2 months sounds really good. Way to go!

Thnx for the words of encouragement, I really needed it today did my weekly weigh in and only dwn 1lb! Ughhh…But the bright side of all this is,the inches are melting off I’ve lost 5.5 inches off my waist and I’m dwn 3 sizes…so if I look at the big picture, I’ve got to RELAX and let the surgery work.

35 lbs in two months is a lot more than I lost - and I had a virgin bypass and weighed almost 400 lbs. And yes - revision patients typically lose more slowly.

That should be told to the revision patients, and maybe it is but it wasn’t told to me..If that would have been explained to me my expectations would be different.. “catwoman7” what is a virgin bypass?
