Hi there!

I'm a band patient from 15 years ago (loved it!) who was just revised to RNY after a slip in October. I've had a great recovery, never any problems with water, shakes, or mushies. I almost wish I were having difficulties as...

I am 2 weeks post-op yesterday, and after the initial 10 pound loss during hell week, I haven't seen the scale move at all. Is this normal? It is very distressing.

Many thanks,

The 3-week stall is normal. If you search the forum, you will see that it happens to alot of people. Just eat as much dense protein as you are able and drink your fluids. The scale will move again when it is ready.

Hi Didi,

You don't say how much you need to lose, how close or far you are from goal . I am a former band to sleeve to RNY patient so as a revision, I lost a bit slower since I had less to lose.

Revision from sleeve to RNY

Pre op: -5 M1-12 lbs M2 11 lb M3-5lb M4 -9lb M5 -2 M6-6 M7-7

173 lbs lost and 1 more to go!

Thanks, I had to tweak my ticker settings - I have about 85 pounds to lose. I read up on the three week stall and it looks like I'm just a little early for it. :) I wonder why band revisions lose more slowly? Do you know?
