I am 6 years post op and looking to have revision surgery. I originally had Rny and lost about 110 lbs and have gained about 70 of it back, mostly because emotion roller coaster. I had my first surgery in Charlotte and now live in Durham. I looking for a surgeon in Raleigh/Durham that is experienced in revisions. Any suggestions?

There are several that have used Duke and might chime in on their recommendations, but you may want to also post on the main RNY forum.

Question-why not just address the 'emotional roller coaster' and use the tool you already have vs. doing surgery again? Another RNY or ??

Please consult your surgeon & nutritionist for how to do it their way.  Biggest regret? Not doing this 10 years ago! Every day is better than the day before...and it was a pretty great day!

Hello Mslayd02! Welcome. I had a great experience with the surgical team in Durham (Duke Center for Metabolic Weight loss). I would give them a call. They are a great team and have tons of experience between them. Good luck on your journey.

Duke my fist stop but I was basically shoved out the door and told to come back in a year when I have medical insurance that would cover it. I was extremely disappointed in the way I was treated.

Dr. Paul Enochs of Bariatric Specialists of NC.  His office is in Cary, and I believe he's doing surgeries out of Rex in Raleigh.
