Gastric bypass revision.......

on 4/12/07 11:05 pm - piscataway, NJ
Hello all,. I had surgery in Sept. 2004. I'm thinking of a revision on 5/04 because I am able to eat far too much, I can eat sweets and snack w/o dumping! Original lost 80lbs, but have gained back 25. My surgeon is suggesting a smaller pouch thru revision. Has anyone done this or amI all alone here? Steel

I am sure you are not alone.... I wish you all the best! I lost 110 lbs and had gained back 12lbs but now am up 8lbs... I am really working on not eating sweets... that is my biggest problem. I too can eat w/out dumping, wish those days were back. I never was a big dumper, but I would start to feel very very ill. Rather than feel terrible I too would consider a revision if it got to that point. You do what feels right for you. Karen

Hi Karen, Thanks for the encouragement! I kind of new something like this might be needed because from the initial surgery my weight loss was not as expected in comparison to most. But, I also know that I nned to make a major shift in my focus this time. Steel

I have a few friends who had revisions---they did great with them---don't be hard on yourself----I tried sweets after I swore I never would and its the same for me no dumping but I feel sick sometimes---today I started to regroup and start focusing on what I should do---I gained 12 lbs since January---just overeating. If a smaller pouch will help you then I say go for it---if it helps you feel better than you owe it to yourself--Good Luck April

April, Thanks for the news, I was thinking I was the "only" one here who it didn't take with. I do realize the bad habits I picked up, and i'm praying that this knowledge will help me. I also have the knowledge of how easily i fell back into my "old" ways! Thanks again. Steel

Did you have to pay for the revision? Just curious. Thanks! Sherry
