Hi Everyone,

I have to convert to RNY due to extreme GERD. My surgery is tomorrow. They said recovery and diet will be exactly the same as it was for the sleeve. Starting to get nervous because I never wanted RNY (though I got some of the side effects of it that I didn't want like lactose intolerance, sugar intolerance, and trouble absorbing medications and vitamins orally). I don't remember a lot of what it was like after surgery but I do remember throwing up non stop so I'm praying that doesn't happen again! Any words of wisdom or luck are welcome!

Good luck and hope surgery went well! I converted from VSG to RNY in July 2016. I had a really easy recovery and food progression. If you have any specific questions, please feel free to ask!!

I'm having revision in a couple of weeks for the same reason. Sending good mojo for an easy surgery and strong healing!
