My surgery was 8 years ago in August. 9 this year. I went almost 3 hours away from where I live. I'm trying to see about a revision now. A new dr should. I'm not going back to where my original surgery was.

I'm in the same boat. I live in Paoli,IN. For my first surgery I went to IU North in Carmel. I just couldn't stand the idea of going that far again for possibly over a year. I found a Dr in New Albany that does revisions. I have my seminar on the 25th. I hope he can do something for me. If not I guess I will have to make the trek back to Carmel every month.

Hello everyone. I am new here. I had the RNY in August 2013. I lost 100 pounds only to gain approximately 150 back. I honestly feel that my medications in part contributed to the regain. I can pinpoint to approximately 2016 as to when my regain started. My mother passed away after sitting in the hospital for 3 weeks waiting for her to pass. I was traumatized by this. I am a RN and have been a nurse for 21 years but had never had anyone that close to me pass or been in the position of waiting. I had always been the healthcare professional. If that makes sense. Anyway I started to have panic attacks and was started on Buspar and abilify also got with my antidepressant Effexor. I have had adjustments made with increases in the meds since then.
Anywho I am looking to get a revision but am uncertain which would be best for me the DS or have the RNY revision. The program that I would like to use does not offer the DS. This program is only an hour away. The program that does offer it is approximately 2 1/2 hours away. Any suggestions?
