Welcome Karen!  

You should find that your bypass is much more effective at weight loss than your band ever was.  

We are here to support and inform you on your continuing weight loss surgery journey.  :)

Welcome back to Thinner Times Karen and congratulations on your revision.  Do you have any idea of when your surgery will take place?

Welcome Karen. Hope all goes well with your upcoming revision. I love mine, and it's so much more effective than my old surgery ever was. Plus waking up from surgery and never suffering reflux again is pure bliss!

Hope revision is soon, Good Luck

For the education of Newbies and Lurkers could you explain what the "getting stuck" meant? Thanks!

Welcome back and congratulations on your upcoming revision! I hope it brings you much relief, @aThinnerMe. I also was going to ask what you meant by "getting stuck", but @BurgundyBoy beat me to it - guess inquiring minds want to know...lol! :) Glad you're back.

I'll save you the wait because I have a sister that's banded and gets "stuck" quite often. The band leaves a tiny opening between the new pouch and the remainder of the stomach. Some foods (often not chewed enough) will block the opening and can't move through the band. This is referred to as getting "stuck". My sister finds it particularly difficult with leafy veggies like lettuce, but soft breads, pastas etc also cause her problems. Yes, she shouldn't be eating them, but she isn't very diet compliant. . The lower part of the stomach is where the majority of stomach acid is produced, so with no acid really to speak of any food that gets stuck has to be vomited back up, because it isn't going to break down.
