A quick background had my surgery in 2010 I was 315 at my highest now currently at 135 or so I need to do all I can to maintain this weight. I had a scope done a year and half ago all was good I'm scheduled for another scope on the 23rd to check again and depending on what happens there I could be having a reversal. I can't really eat anything I want to but take one bite and can't go more only thing I can eat a lot of is some junk foods like chips ice cream some pies and soda anything else I can't do it. Has anyone had a reversal done if so how did it go recovery time and other issues you had

Sorry things have gone so badly for you. Have you also worked with a therapist?

There is a revision board where you might find information on reversals.

If they don't find anything physically wrong, I hope they have a plan to help you psychologically, as a reversal won't do that.

Let us know how you get on.

I'm in Massachusetts my original dr I no longer use because at my last scope he didn't give me any direction to go. So a year had past and I spoke to my wife's surgeon who is also the head of the bariatric department. He does have experience with reversals

When I had a problem with processing dense proteins, I made my own ",junk food".

I made ice cream using heavy cream and protein powder. I ate full fat Greek yogurt, I used frozen berries to add some calories and taste to my food.

I found protein snacks - chips and small pretzels. I made ( home made ) egg drop soup based on chicken or beef bone broth, eggs and some good fats.

There are cheese crisps - that were great to use instead of crackers or chips for my avocado dip.

I used to bake - so I made cheesecake (cream cheese, eggs, proteins, natural or artificial sweeteners)

There are many options to get food if we don't tolerate some group of them.

Best diet can no raw foods, everything cooked to a very soft consistency, best - when combined with cooked protein.

Even now, when my pouch and insides are not happy,. I cook 4-5 . quarts of chicken with veggies very thick soup. Adding a pat of butter or slice avocade - I can eat up to 1.5 cap of it. Any dense proteins by itself - I get lucky to eat ,4 oz of steak or dense chicken.

That sounds like misery to me. I would rather be 300lbs again and be able to eat meat again than to stay small and not be able to enjoy meats

90% of the time I enjoy meat. And I crave them. But a few times things were not working as well and I had to improvised. Probably worst 3 -4 weeks were just before my GB removal surgery and hernia. The only things I could eat were slider foods.
