Good afternoon. I just joined the forum, and I was wondering if anyone has had the TORe procedure done? Thoughts? Weight loss after? I have an appt this coming Monday for a consult. I had gastric bypass 9 years ago and lost 110 lbs but never got to my goal weight, plus I've gained about 20 lbs since the bypass. I'm just trying to weigh my options before I commit to anything.

Thanks Amy

Never even heard of it. I had to google it. So basically its just suturing your pouch even smaller thru your mouth. I didnt even know there was a revision after bypass. Pretty interesting.

Hello and welcome. I have not heard of it either but would like to know more. Hopefully someone out there has had it done.

I have lost 30 lbs so far I was on a liquid diet for a bout a week than went to soft foods. Now i am on a high Protein with little to no carbs. The weight is coming off slow now but I had lost 20 lbs before procedure.. I have gone from a size 24 snug to a 14/16 or extra large.. ALready taken off 2 of my diabetes meds and have had my blood pressure and thyroid meds cut back..

I'm down 8 pounds in 4 weeks. Slow and steady wins the race but I wish it was faster. Hoping to drop another 25.

I had the TORe procedure done 6/15 and I weighed 201, and this morning I weighed 188. I feel great. I haven’t had any issues at all since surgery ( nausea & vomiting) and healing was rather quick. I felt like my normal self after a few weeks.

Awesome! Glad to hear this has been a smooth process. Did insurance give you and objectives? If you don’t mind me asking what insurance do you carry?

Stay well💖
