What health issues has your surgery resolved?

I am scheduled for surgery on 10/21 and have several health issues that have been the primary reason for my decision. I am hoping mine will go away but was wondering how many here had them and no longer do since they had surgery.

I was on high blood pressure meds, insulin shots 5 times a day and metformin for type 2 diabetes.

I'm no longer on those esp since the revision I had. WLS isn't a guarantee to solve these but it worked for me. It hasn't been easy but I do not, I repeat, do NOT miss those 5 shots a day.

39 F and 6 foot 1 inches

VSG - 3-14-18 - - - Revision to RNY - 5-29-19

I can?t control everything but I can control what I put in my body.

I have diabetes too so I am hoping that will resolve. Are you saying your diabetes didn't resolve until you had a revision?

I got pretty sick before my revision and ate what I could keep down. I still had to take metformin before my revision. RNY has a greater success rate with type 2 diabetes from what I've read.
