VSG almost two years ago--never lost appetite and always  been able to eat more than others who have had surgery. I did not do my part either--keep a journal of food I ate, exercise daily, support groups etc., but I sure thought the sleeve would make it easier. If I had the will power to do all those things --I would have BEFORE surgery! BTW--My ins. did NOT cover one cent of my surgery--I paid for it myself! I had a couple of friends who had surgery around the same time and still can not eat much! one lost over 75 lbs and one over 100 --without exercise, journal, etc. same Dr also.  Just curious if anyone has been re-sleeved with improved success the second time around? Please don't let me discourage anyone!! Everyone is different! I see that with my friends mentioned above! I truly am jealous of their success and embarrassed of my failure!

     Dr Bellanger did my sleeve in May 07 and I lost about 25 lbs the first 3 months and then I was back able to eat more again.   I now have gained all that weight back plus an extra 30 !!!   I went to a new Dr last month and he did and endoscopy and found that my stomach is still quiet large.    So please dont think its just YOU or that your a failure because Im there too!!   My new Dr didnt want to talk about a re-sleeve until he saw how large my stomach is.   Now hes willing to re sleeve,   plication or gastric bypass.     I was self pay also.    Very disappointed .
