Hello! So here's the scoop. My plans were to have revision from band to sleeve, however during a pre-op endoscopy, Barrett's esophagus (where the lining of the esophagus begins to look like the lining of the intestine from too much acid exposure, whch could be precancerous) was discovered, and my surgeon says there is a possiblity that the VSG could worsen the barrett's esophagus. I still had the band out last Tuesday. It needed to be done, I was in a lot of pain, throwing up, my port was flipped... etc. So now my options are to have the RNY bypass, or nothing at all.. I am leaning towards the RNY, mostly because as many of you are in the same boat, find it extremely difficult to control appetite after the band is out. So, what I am asking, before I make the drastic move, can I have the real deal details on the RNY, from recovery after surgery through maintenance?
Please help me in the confusing time!!!
