Hey guys! I am 3 years post op from my sleeve surgery. I originally lost 117 lbs however last year I had a baby and during my pregnancy I gained about 50 lbs. I have been unable to lose it back off. My questions are: Has anyone had the Sleeve Rescue surgery or any type of revision? What was your experience? Wait time? Consultation? Actual surgery? Recovery? Etc. Has anyone else not had it but considering it? If so, what are your thoughts?
I am scheduled in September 2018 for band over bypass revision/rescue surgery. I am looking for recent post-op patients to chat with. Are you having success? Any problems? How does it compare to your first weight loss surgery?
I found this quote today in an interview with Carnie Wilson. She recently had the Band Over Bypass surgery. Dr. Ortiz actually pioneered this type of surgery and has been performing for years and has performed hundreds of these! I think for anyone that is hesitant about finding out more about a revision surgery, this will hit home! "My message to people is you have to help yourself and when you're ready to change something, then you're ready. Nobody can do it for you. Don't hide out by yourself and feel ashamed, like a failure. You have to reach out and get help to do something about it. "
