Sleeve to Gastric Bypass?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had their sleeve converted to a gastric bypass?

My doctor is talking about doing it, and I'm just curious if any one else has had this done.

I went from Gastroplasty to RNY bypass, so kind of similar. I assume there is a medical necessity for the revision. My medical issues were resolved by my revision but I'm now in an ongoing battle with medical professionals over trying to maintain rather than lose weight after the surgery. I have a checkup today and hope the surgeon isn't as concerned as everyone else seems to be.

Best advice I can give if make sure your surgeon knows what he's doing and has experience with revisions. Mine was done laprascopically, so don't believe the "must be done as open surgeries" line that many surgeon's give.

I have a sleeve that has to be revised to a bypass. At this point it is a medical necessity due to a world of issues including malnourishment. I am still to sick to have the revision so it's on hold for now.
