luci b Posted December 2, 2005 Report Share Posted December 2, 2005 I had gastric bypass done 2 years ago. I lost a total of 85 lbs of which I gained back 30; for a total loss of 55 lbs. I currently weigh 250lb and I never had dumping syndrome so I am considering a revision at this point. I was told that placing a lap band over my RNY would be a great choice. However, after speaking with others I am reconsidering that choice. I was told that DS (Duodenal Switch) is probably a better option. Is there anyone else that has had the band over a failed RNY as a revision? If so could you please elaborate on your sucess (or lack of) including how long ago that was done and the amount of weight that was lost/gained?... Thank you, I am new to this so I truely appreciate any imput Luci Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
