Sandy, When I was researching a revision surgery I must of called and talked to about 10 different sugeon offices. Out of that 10 there were 4 surgeons who were familiar with this particular surgery and when I told them what I had they all said that the surgery did not give the best long term results. These surgeons are from different parts of the country and they don't know what the other surgeons have said but that is what they said. Also, there is a surgeon who has done several revisions for people who had the mgb. That patient is the one that gave the name of the surgeon to call. However, I am going with a different surgeon in FL. Also, the people I know personally are the one's I met years ago at the support group and I have some what stayed in contact with. I know 5 who have had revision and 8 who have regained back alot of their weight. I know that does not sound like much but it can be if you have failed yourself. Hope this helps. Good luck on staying thin.
Please tell me where your research is coming from pertaining to my statement of the high rate of regain? I know alot of facts about the mini gastric bypass. Please don't be condescending to people who do not support this surgery. I found the use of "honey" as very belittling.
