I have not had a revision.  Plan on making an adjustment to my last surgery.  Many people are speaking of RNY to DS, but I don't have that option so I wanted to see if there was anyone that has had a RNY revision surgery.  "fixing" the first surgery I guess you could say...

Good topic because I was wondering the same thing.......what if RnY fails........is it possible to have it reversed to a DS?  I cannot seem to find anything online.

 Hi, The only way your RNY would fail is if you give up and go back to your old ways. Remember
one thing your surgeon gave you a tool the rest is up to you. The RNY was the best thing for me
and if I had to do it all over again I would.

Sweetie- that's pretty harsh.  You are not even a year out and can diagnose someone elses problem???

You shouldn't be so judgemental until you've walked in their shoes.

You need to do more research.

Giving up and going back to old ways is the failure of the person, not the RNY. 

RNY can fail physically.  For those who had surgery years ago, it was done differently than it is now.  Even for those who are having RNY now there is definitely a chance for problems.  

Yes, the surgeon provides a tool but if the tool is faulty then success is difficult.
