I’m having revision from vsg to rny in July. I only lost 50lbs with vsg. Start weight 420 current weight 470
Just want to talk to anyone that’s had revision? Did you lose more? How much? Thanks.

Hello and welcome!

Yes we have had members who have gone from sleeve to bypass, as the sleeve was originally the first stage to a two stage approach for very overweight patients.

I don't think we have any current members though unfortunately but if we do hopefully they'll see this and comment x

Hi all. I put it off. Postponed it out of fear and the thought that I could lose it alone. BUT I amhave rescheduled and I’m having the revision surgery in Two weeks jan 31st 2019.
Current weight 350lbs. (Only lost 70lbs with the sleeve. Still massively overweight lol)
I’ll keep you all updated.

I’m awaiting a assessment day at St Richards in a few months time as over 10 years I have put on just over half the weight I lost with sleeve. I’m now hopefully in the process (if I get a yes on the day) of getting it revised to RNY. I really need to shift this weight as I’m now 44 with a 2.5 year old and can’t move much. Good luck with yours xx

UPDATE: I had my surgery 4 days ago in Turkey cost me 3k and I’m thrilled. I actually have restriction now and have lost 5kg already. I had the mini gastric bypass from the sleeve in 2017 where I only lost 50lbs. Ask me anything
