Before you go down the road of another surgery, you need  to be very honest with yourself. Have you really done what you need to do to be successful?  Followed the rules of your surgery, eating a protein forward diet, tracking what you eat, EXERCISING???

Maybe you didn't pick the best surgery for your situation, or maybe you didn't make the necessary changes to ensure success.  Only you can answer that.  No WLS is a "golden ticket" to thinness.  They all require work and dedication for the REST OF YOUR LIFE.

Statistically, the long term best results for long term weight loss maintenance are with the DS followed by RNY (and I believe VSG is gaining ground and is similar to RNY now).  That does not mean that DSers just get surgery and then do nothing.  They have a specified way they are to eat, and they must take supplements too. We ALL should adopt regular exercise into our daily lives not only for weight control but for overall good health.

There are stories of long term success and there are stories of people that have regained with EVERY SINGLE SURGERY.  A huge component in success is the commitment of the person having the surgery, not necessarily the surgery itself.
