Can a revision of a RNY help with reactive hypoglycemia?
My situation.....reactive hypoglycemia, 9.5 yrs post RNY, stretched stoma. I've been thinking that if my stoma was smaller, food passing would be slowed and help with the situation.
Any experience here?
I've read a report that even after RNY take down in a patient whi*****luded a 100lb weight re-gain, that symptoms still persist. Also reading about pancreas removal is kind of freaking me out.
Just wondering about others in similar situations.
One thing you might want to focus your research on under the cir****tances is just how long food stays in the banded pouch. It's not as long as we think.
The way the band really works is it keeps it in there just long enough to trigger the vagus nerve and the people FEEL full, doesn't mean they are.
I *think* it was Dr. Terry Simpson that was writing an article about just how short of a time food stays in the banded pouch.
The real problem is that bands are a temporary fix to a life long problem. The stats are not good with bands and they are worse with BOBs. Let's say the band gives you 10 years, then what? By that time you'll have even more scarring than you started out with due to RNY.
ROSE? Horrible procedure, even worse than the band. But, you have to do what is right for you.
