Thanks for the responses.
@ Larra & Nightowl, Dr. Ungson was doing revisions from RNY to DS at one point. I was so close to scheduling a revision with him, but got scared and changed my mind. I wanted to hear a little more feedback from patients that had the revision done by him. I was in contact with this person below who actually had the same insurance as me at the time and did have a revision from RNY to DS with Dr. Ungson. Unfortunately, after her surgery, I could not get in touch with her to find out how things went. I sent her messages, but no response. That really made me scared. This is the member below;
Also, I'm not the type to rush into something without giving it time to see how it goes for others. I'm noticing more people now getting the RNY to RNY revisions. A few years ago not many people would post information out it. I'm actually considering that as another option as well. But, again since I am self-pay, I was still considering Mexico's Dr. Alejandro Aguirre-Wallace.
That story does sound familiar. After all these years, I'm still deciding what do. I know that the RNY to RNY revisions are not as good as the RNY to DS in the long run. If I decide to do the RNY to RNY revision, it would not be the Stomaphyx or Rose procedures. I would (as the surgeon stated) make my existing pouch smaller and the communication hole between the pouch and the loop of the small intestine smaller.
