Gastric Sleeve to Mini Bypass

Recommended Posts


I am not sure if the revision to a mini gastric bypass will work but I am 100% committed to making it work. I got cocky after slimming down and got off track. Regretful to say the least.

I found out that the procedure does not call for a reduction of the stomach because the sleeve already did that. Doing research now to look deeper into the physiological effects of the MGB and the difference between my GSS. If anyone can share their experience with the same surgery path I'd appreciate it.

Thank you

Revision to mini gastric bypass will work when you are committed to not repeating what went wrong in the past. Everyone makes mistakes and that is what makes us human. Be smarter next time for not everyone gets a second chance at life.

Don't confuse yourself with data from the internet which is never specific to your body or case. The doctor would do a endoscopy or gastric swallow test to know the current position / status of your abdomen before deciding the revisional surgery method.

I went through the same set of surgeries and did not bother to read what was published on the internet and listened to only the doctor and went in to the whole experience blindly. Knowing too much can be intimidating at times and when in doubt, your surgeon or team of doctors are the best place to ask your doubts.
