VSG to RNY weight loss / vitamins

on 10/11/19 12:41 pm - Fresno, CA
I have a hernia, GERD and am about 40 lbs over weight. I need to fix the hernia but they strongly suggest revision.
1. I get physically ill flu like symptoms when I eat certain foods like no sugar added and sometimes randomly and have to be careful what I eat. Does that get worse with the RNY?
2. I’ve noticed people with the RNY the weight shifts and their body looks droopy. I didn’t have any of that with the sleeve. Did anyone with the revision experience uneven weightloss?
3. Any regrets?

Most revision patients lose about 20 pounds. You should not see a droopy body from that. The big change should be resolving the GERD. You will still have to watch the sugar intake.

I also had a hernia and GERD and ended up with a revision to RNY about 2.5 months ago. No regrets at all, my GERD is completely resolved. Even though I struggle with food getting stuck (my sleeve stretched and my pouch is smaller than normal) I have zero regrets.

Folks can have uneven weight loss with any surgery, I suspect it's all a matter of luck. I'm down 38lb and have none of that so far, I'm saggy in a completely even fashion!
