I've gained back, tried to get back on track several times but I keep going back to over eating.

I'm 9 years post op and I can now eat a big mac with ease...

pretty sure I've stretched my beloved sleeve.

my question is... what are the risks of an endoscopic sleeve Procedure? Can you develop a leak?

anyone here developed serious adverse effects?

yes you can develop a leak with a realer right just as you could with a virgin sleeve.
the real question here is what is going to keep you from overeating you resleeve and stretching it out?

are you in therapy to discover why you continue to overeat? If not I would begin therapy before I had are sleeve.

have you had any tests to prove your sleeve is stretched?

have you checked with your insurance? Many companies ate going to a one wls per lifetime platform.

July85, I identify with your position. Do you belong to a support group? I don't and feel that is one negative. Perhaps we both need too reach out to one -- even if it is just a basic weightloss support group like WW or First Place or Overeaters Anonymous.

Have you read and tried the 5 day Pouch Test? I also suggest reading, "Day 6:Beyond the 5 day Pouch Test".

My nephew had a sleeve recently and had significant problems. One section was just too small and he could not keep anything down (water, protein shakes, nothing). He also had a leak. He was in the hospital for a while and had to undergo a few procedures including inserting stents and removing stents. He is fine now, but with any surgery, there are risks.

I pray you are able to find the answers to reach your goals.
