Post Op 17 years

on 3/7/19 9:21 am

I am 17 years post op. When I had the Ruex-N-Y surgery in 2002 I went from 358 to 182 in the first 16 months. I stayed at the 182 for about 1 year. I slowly gained and reached a weight of 250 and stayed there till November of 2018 at which time I gained and have gained since then. I am now 280 and I'm afraid that I'll get back up to my original weight. I have been thinking about taking weight loss pills (OTC or even prescribed). What are your thoughts? Thank you all for your time and thoughts!! Take care everyone!!

What did you end up doing? I'm in northern Virginia and I had RNY in 2012. Went from 257 to 130. Now I'm at 206 and I want revised surgery. I will not gain all my weight back. I'm looking for a revision surgeon. My RNY surgeon was fantastic, Dr. Anez, but he's retired now. Do you know of any good bariatric surgeons in northern VA? Thanks!
