Hello.. I had VBG done in October of 2002 in Lubbock tx. I lost over 100lbs, but have since gained it all back. I vomit multiple times a day and have since about 6 months out. I have converted to adaptive eating (soft foods, ice cream, mashed potatoes, soups) which I know has led to my weight gain. I had an evaluation with a bariatric surgeon in my hometown. My Endoscopy showed a 1cm size outlet from my pouch into my stomach but according to him, everything looked intact. My EGD showed severe reflux which I ended up vomiting all I had ingested before the images were taken. I'm looking for a bariatric surgeon to do a revision in Texas. From what I hear this is a complicated surgery. Has anyone had this experience and or recommend someone for me to see?? Thank You.
Where are you from Krutledge? I'm seeing Dr. Turnquest in Houston.. not sure If I will be having a revision but I had a VBG with Dr. Harberg (deceased) in Houston in 2001. I didn't have any problems until lately. I'm having problems feeling like I can't get enough air in my lungs after I eat. Not to mention years of on again and off again ulcer pain..and bee stinging pain right at my sternum or upper part of scar.
I met with Dr. Ayoola. He is doing my rny to DS, as soon as I get the money or insurance to cover it. Tell him Angelina sent you.
i had a VBG as well in Lubbock by Dr. Hall.
I am having problems with H Pylori. It is know amongst several people who have had this procedure. I am in the process of having it revised. My doctor is doing the Gastic By Pass. The acid reflex may also be a sign of H Pylori as well. It is believed due to food getting stuck. When it rotten it turns to a bacteria . I had my apron removed from my stomach and they found a hernia . So another thing to worry about . Anyway hope this helps. EHAYWOOD
