Topic: RE: Dr Glazer gave the go ahead for revision!

Hey guys!

ok so Dr Glazer gave the go ahead for my revision! He said to call Kline on Monday if I hadn't heard from his office for surgery date by then. Can anyone tell me roughly the wait time from the point? All other appointments are done!

thanks!

You have to eat more? But you loose more with DS? I'm getting the same procedure is you.

Please tell me more!! So did they undo your bypass for the sleeve? How was that? Did you notice a difference from the first time or was recovery and eating after very similar? Did you have weight loss with sleeve? And how do you feel about DS?

Super helpful thanks! I see Dr Glazer in Less than 2 weeks and my vit D was low so hopefully he will still approve revision!

Hey guys!

just wondering once all appointments are done how long is it normally until surgery?

I have the internist at the beginning of April and then I meet with Kline again to get my date, if all goes well.

Topic: RE: Revision surgery

Thanks for replying Krista,

im just wondering what his take on revision was? Or his Attitude?  I'm reading about macanical issues with pouch but I'm not sure exactly what that includes....  I'm reading how some Dr brush off some people..   He was amazing and fit me into a cancellation spot 13 years ago... ya, I guess I'm just wondering if there could be a reason for this sudden weight gain... and chronic fatigue symptoms that are kinda sudden and blood work shows no reason for..

Topic: RE: Revision surgery? Anyone?

I hope you are pleased with the surgery you choose.  It's so funny, back when I had it I didn't know there were options... if there were?    Your right only I know my body, and I know somthing is seriously off.. the dr's are now telling me it's chronic fatigue and ya, it feels that way but it just does not make sense.  After my bypass I was completely anemic.. blood transfusions, infusions until they did a coderization... and that is how it feels, like I did right before a blood transfusion... but iron and hemoglobin are fine... so maybe dr Hagen can help.. maybe he can find a reason for my body shutting down. And gaining weight like crazy.... maybe hormones? Premenopausal? When does that start? Anyone? 36 ?

sorry for the long rant!

ha!

Topic: RE: Revision surgery? Anyone?

Thanks Bonnie,

ya I think that will be the first step... seeing if something has happened.  I was treated for H pylori 6 years ago so who knows..    It's an abnormal weight gain.... like I would have to be eating Big Macs every hour to make sense of this weight gain....
