I was sleeved 2017 and wanting to get a revision to bypass due to uncontrollable heart burn. How much have you lost with the revision??

I was just converted to RNY due to acid issues. My surgeon says that patients generally don't lose as much weight as with their first surgery, and the weight loss is often slower.

My lowest weight after VSG 5 years ago was 150; if I can get to 165 - 170ish I'll be thrilled.

  1. I have bcbs of Illinois and was denied 2 times they didn't consider GERD as a medical criteria so i now am going back for a second sleep study and going to try again with sleep apnea, high blood pressure and knee and feet issues that have been limiting me due to the weight. Hopefully they will approve me tis time. Also I'm going back to my surgeon and getting back on track.
