VSG - 10 Years on. Weight Gain - Reflux etc - Revision suggested

on 7/1/19 2:17 pm
Hi All.

Its been 11 years actually since my procedure which saw me drop from 180 to 80kg. A huge loss, and something i maintained +/- 10 kg for 8 years.

Unfortunately it then changed and ive had a bad gain, im currently up to 110kg ( not horrible for a male, ) but an increase, my reflux is very bad and im on lansoprazole daily ( without it the day isnt great ).

Im trying to find others who are a decent way out of their surgery date, and wanting to know if you may have undergone an RNY revision to address these concerns. My dr is saying that the only way to fix the heartburn is with an RNY ( given we have no stomach to use normally ) and that RNY is now not that big of a deal given the improvements in surgery techniques ( larger pouch, smaller stoma, and other techniques ).. also that laproscopic surgery has come a long way and stapling is much improved and less concerns.

So can you share your experiences?

Need some decide what i do next to help with teh weight and the reflux..

You almost a copy of me, I'm 13 years post-op and I started regaigning weigth after 5 years when my reflux started, tomorrow I'm gonna have my revision, VSG to SADI-S (loop DS) on pre-op they have found my reflux is due an hiatus hernia, so they will correct my hernia and do the SADI-S.

I'm from Spain so I can't help you with doctors.
