Im having the same surgery this week. I am at my goal weight and having trouble maintaining it. I have had a feeding tube once already and fear rhe same will happen again.

About to revise to RNY on the 19th for this myself. More people than you might imagine have issues. Sadly, it's random somewhat, and inclined to happen if the sleeve is smaller.

I follow a ketogenic diet post-op. I also have a diagnosis of binge eating disorder. Feel free to ask me about either!
