I've been researching options for resleeving but one of the docs I had narrowed it down too believes MGB to be the best option as opposed to resleeving. I had NEVER considered such a thing though I guess it doesn't hurt to do some research. Here's the thing, I weigh about 175 lbs, I'm very happy around 150, my sleeve is definitely not working at all, I fight everyday to stay where I'm at but I've gained 10lbs over the last few months. Is this surgery too severe for a lower BMI patient?
I am looking into the same thing. Looking at Dr. Elias Ortiz.
I had a revision to MGB on 4/23. Recovery was rough but only because I ended up dehydrated and also got pneumonia in both lungs. I'll be 6 weeks on Thursday and I'm doing great now ! Iv lost 22 lbs so it's slow going but that okay, I'm only 20/25 lbs from my goal weight now. Iv heard good things about Oritz, I had a great experience with Rodriguez for the most part. He is more expensive though but I stayed the whole time in the hospital.
How much was Rodriguez?
i am going into Ortiz for a mgb with sleeve redo on 11/24 15. I am very excited
Are you talking about Dr. Ortiz with ALM? If so, how is your progress? I just scheduled a date with him in July to revise from a sleeve to an MGB. I have had a hard time finding a lot of information on the mgb. Can you please tell me about your experience?
I paid $7995 put half down and in house financed the rest.
I am looking for the same information, Thank you.
I'm 5 months out as of yesterday from my sleeve to MGB, so far so good, about 10 lbs from goal but honestly I haven't tried at all to lose and have been guilty of letting the surgery do all the work. I am very active though and I do run a few times a week and average at least 10k steps per day. I would be happy to answer questions if you have any. Good luck to you!
How much is you goal? My BMI is 27 and I'd like to lose 50 pounds and did not lose anything with my sleeve only. I also love to walk but quit smoking 9 mos ago and having problems gaining wt. any ideas would be great.
