I am exactly 4 years post surgery. I lost just sort of 100 pounds and it stayed off relatively easy the second year. Your three and four I have gained back every single pound. I cannot seem to even manage to lose 5 pounds. I will really try hard to lose 5 pounds and I will gain seven more. I've never had any complications I've never had any pain I've never had any side effects. Waiting for the first of the year to do my EGD since it's 1000 bucks and basically will meet my deductible for the calendar year. So until then I really don't know the state of my sleeve. Considering revising to a DS worried about the bowel movements the gas the complications the leaks and obviously their stories of Regan after that as well. I really think I have followed all the rules it just doesn't make sense to me.... thoughts? Experiences?
Since my stomach is already been shrunken considered the first stage, I'm wondering how quickly I will I lose 100 pounds the second time around. Although I'm guessing I need a revision of that my sleeve is not right. The only thing that really breaks my heart as I lost so much hair with my sleeve and it is just now starting to recuperate I lost Hair from six months to 2 1/2 years
I also could put a band on it or I could do just bypass, but from what I can tell bypass and do you switch are pretty much the same thing other than the length of the common channel so it seems like a switch would be the better option. I just wonder if I would bandit and lose 100 pounds and be successful with that or not I don't know it's just really confusing, and I feel very defeated
What, exactly, are you eating each day?
Are you measuring/logging everything you put into your mouth with something like MyFitnessPal?
