Topic: RE: I have a revision scheduled for February 11.
I live in Tulsa, Ok and the closest place I found a dr who would do a revision is Wichita Falls. Tx. I had my first rny gb on 11-27-01. I lost 80 lbs the first year and then I began to gain until I now am within 6 lbs of my orginal weight of 281. The first time I lost my spleen and my gallbladder. I went to intensive care for 24 hours. I was very tired and weak for several months after my surgury but I did begin to feel energetic at last. I could always eat as much as I wanted and I rarely vomited. I will have a revision with Dr. Kenneth Warnock in February. I visited with him yesterday and he didn't mince words. I had my upper gi and he reviewed the records from the first gb. He said the risk involved in considerably increased during a revision. He said he does about 60 a year and to date has not lost a revision patient. He will gv me a 25cc pouch.
He said the space my spleen occupied has been filled with intestine which makes his job more difficult. I have also had a complete hysterectomy since my first gb. I bounced back immediately from that. I am 41 and weigh 275 and am very tired all the time and lay down all the time except when I am at work where I sit down all day. Does anyone have any info to share? Thank you very much.
