5 years out -VSG

unfortunately, I have gained a lot of weight in the past few months.  Steroids? I'm at the lowest dose now and need to lose 40-50 pounds.  I'm going to see my VSG surgeon next week to check in w/him. Is there a simple, easy way to do some sort of revision or modification w/the sleeve? Thanks for your help, I'm very discouraged.

Unless there is something wrong with your sleeve - most likely diet modification will help you lose the regain. 

I get that the steroids make you more hungry.  I am on daily small dosage myself. It is tough... But changing diet to less carbs, more proteins and fat can help.
