I was just wondering if there is anyone on here that had a revision from VSG to RNY? Their experiences? How much they lost with both surgeries? How long did you wait?

A little about me.. July 20th, 2015 I had VSG, weighing 479 lbs I am over

So happy to be home, not in much pain, a lot of nausea which the doctors and nurses kept saying it was normal. Apparently the Sleeve causes more nausea than the RNY. I am so happy I did this, I am so proud of myself!!! I am doing amazing, walking lots,

I started Optifast June 20, and stopped June 23 due to the fact that I could not keep it in! Puking and diarrhea like 16 times a day. I already have chronic diarrihea, and my blood sugar would be severely low, so I couldn't take it anymore. Called TWH

I'm meeting my surgeon Dr. Penner tomorrow morning. For the past week I have been calm, up until today, I feel anxious, nervous but mostly very excited. I can't stop smiling! Finally this day has come.
