8 years out; 190 pounds lost!
“You don't drown by falling in the water. You drown by staying there.”
I have a friend that had a Rouen-en-y surgery she is over a year out, she recently almost died due to being so malnutrition that eat was eating her muscles. She can't even walk she has to rebuild her hole life. She is in a home health care facility now. Her surgeon offered to reverse this surgery but what are the cons of surgery? Is there higher risk then having any abdominal surgeries? Any information please need help!!
i was dying from malnutrition and muscle wasting, required a pacemaker and so thin i could not walk. i had my gastric bypass in 2006, had a reversal in march 2011, and even thouhg some health effects are lasting, such as atrophied heart muscle and pancreas, i am thriving now and have my life back. the surgeon was dr jeffrey allen in louisville ky, he was excellent
Hello, my hubby just had his Roux en y reversed. Open procedure due to adhesions unable to do laparscopic. He is 12 years out from initial surgery. He was experiencing intractable vomiting, and found to have bowel blockage and it was backing up into the remenant stomach. So now he is reversed and is bavk in the hospital because he continues to vomit green bile, even after eating solid foods 2hrs after eating he vomits bile. He is passing gas, belching, having bowel movements. They tell us that it will take time because the stomach that had not been used in 12 years has to start working??? Wondering how you were post reverseal and did it take time for you to tolerate food? Did you have to start with the post bariatric surgery diet with small meals? He is getting weak because his nutrition is poor.
