Would you say my weight loss is good at this point for a revision from the Sleeve to RNY?

My weight was 194 on July 13, 2017 my first visit to my surgeon. My surgery was on Dec 27, 2017 I was 185 at surgery. Today Feb 23, 2018 I weigh 161.

The honeymoon period (12 - 18 months) is it the same amount of time for a person who had revision?

Thanks.

The surgery in general runs it's course 12 to 18 months. Revisions are not known to have as much weight loss as an original surgery. At your weight you have lost a lot in a short period of time! Great job whatever you are doing it is working and as a revised patient or a first time one it's all about how you follow the program!

Thanks for the update! I'm having revision surgery this summer. From VBG to RNY and I'm 175. I was curious what the weight loss might be. I was told I wouldn't lose a lot but I'm hoping to lose about 30 lbs. I'm hoping that's realistic

I am surprised any DR would do RNY at at weight of 175 ?? But good luck
