Revision on 08/19/24

Just wanted to see if anyone in the group has had a revision to RNY with a Hiatal Hernia Repair. I dont see much about revisions when I search and would love to get some ideas of what to expect this time around. I know this surgeon is different than my last. He has me doing a two week liquid prior to surgery in order for liver to use all the stored sugar and to reduce inflammation.

People don't post about revisions because they generally fail to lose any weight with them. They lose 20 pounds on the liquid diets and then gain it back. The hiatal hernia repair should eliminate GERD and make life easier.

If your goal is weight loss you will have to follow a low calorie diet to do that. It is a lot harder than after the original surgery. After the initial loss and when you go back to eating solid food again, weigh yourself daily and track your calories taken in. I would recommend you join Weigh****chers that is very different from the old programs. Also read their book, The Shift. Good luck with everything.

I haven't had a revision to RNY with a Hiatal Hernia Repair myself, but I've heard from others that the pre-surgery liquid diet is crucial for reducing liver size and inflammation, which makes the surgery safer and smoother. I wish you the best of luck with your procedure and recovery. Wordle Unlimited

Can I ask, what is the reason for revision, and what was the original surgery? I'm guessing you are going from VSG to RNY, and the primary reason is reflux?

I had RNY in 2016 and a RNY revision in 2023 due to regain w/hiatal hernia repair. I also did he liver shrinking diet for 2 weeks before. For me, the recovery pain was nothing compared to the first time, but the fatigue was worse. I had no issues drinking or eating (except food quantity) afterwards like I had the first time. I took it slow and followed orders to the letter. I lost some hair, but nothing compared to the first time. In the last year, I've lost lost 63 pounds (20 or so more to go) so it can be done but you have to get real and change your eating habits or you won't be successful.

If you are going from a sleeve to RNY, the recovery would be completely different.

Amy Liz is an example of what happens when a person gets a revision and then adds diet and exercise after the revision. She has done fantastic and is my hero.
