Hello everyone, I'm gonna be real brief with my story...First off I had a RNY gastric bypass back in 12/30/1995. My pre-surgery wt was 418lbs, I loss wt. down to 220lbs. I managed to maintain that wt. till about 2002, I could not lose anymore wt. and I slowly began to regain the wt back. I was exercising, eating very little because my pouch could not hold that much food which was good it was still working. That is when someone suggested that I go to the OH board because there were people on there that had the same problems that I was facing. I had began to feel like a failure, and angry with myself. Then I discovered that I wasn't a failure and that the surgery had failed me...I did my research and asked many..many questions about having a revision done and got great responses, and suggestions. I decided to have the BPD/DS revision in which I maintain my pouch from the RNY, but the DS portion was done on my small intestines. My surgery date was 2/2/10. I was approved through BC/BS very quickly, within one week...truely a blessing...and the rest is history...
