Reversal Of Rny Gastric Bypass
Posted 03 September 2011 - 10:34 PM
I had a RNY Gastric Bypass 10 weeks ago and have suffered non stop bright yellow diarrhea and stomach and bowel pains. I'm living a nightmare where I'm on the toilet after simply drinking water. My dietician has tried everything and agrees with me that I need a reversal. I'm sick all day and all night. Everything I eat flies straight through me and causes terrible pain.
I'm female, 40 years old and from Australia.
This surgery has made me so depressed and sick.
I want it reversed ASAP. This is no way to live... I'm suffering :-(
If YOU have had or know about RNY GASTRIC BYPASS REVERSAL....
Would you mind telling me how your reversal has been going?
Did the surgeon manage to put you back how you were originally?
Any post op reversal problems?
I'd really appreciate your help.
It is impossible to find people who've had a reversal.
I've been copping a very hard time from a lot of PRO gastric bypasses who continually tell me IT WILL GET BETTER! Unfortunately. It's getting worse. :-(
Can somebody please help?

You can't give up at 10 weeks and have a reversal without first ruling everything else out. Reversals are complicated, risky, and there is no guarantee your body will go back to the way it was prior.
I had diarrea following surgery and was put on an antibiotic and it cleared up. If you haven't already, please go see your surgeon immediately. If you can't even keep water in you, you're likely dehydrated, which causes a whole other host of problems, and we bypass patients can tend to dehydrate easily. Good luck to you; I hope you are able to find some relief soon.

I think the first person you need to be asking though is your surgeon.
Or if you'd prefer, a different surgeon that specializes in bariatric surgery.
The situation sounds serious enough that you should seek out professional medical attention, rather than support from a Nutritionist or members of a forum.

This is the hardest thing I have ever been through but a reversal, no. There is no way I am going to go through all that again. I am working hard to learn to eat and live with the issues I have. From all the research I have done, a complete reversal is not possible. Too many changes in our chemical system after the bypass, the body just doesn't go back to what it once was. I did my homework before the surgery and thought I had all the info I needed but I was wrong. I did exactly what the Dr. said had to be done, but I almost lost my life. I will say the emotional roller coaster can be a whirlwind so good support is needed. Thankfully I have a wonderful family.
In my opinion six weeks isn't long enough to make that determination. As you will read there are many different situations for everyone. Talk to your surgeon, if you aren't satisfied with what he says go to another one. I am not with the surgeon who operated on me, I knew something was wrong and his office kept telling me it was nothing. After almost losing my life I was taken in by a Dr. who specializes in 'cleaning up his mess' and will be forever grateful. My Dr now said a year ago, let's get to one year and we will see how you are physically, mentally and emotionally at that time and go forward. I took his advice and even though I am struggling still I know that I am on the road to a healthy life.
Don't give up,,,you are not alone. We are all here for you and I will have you in my prayers daily. Things will get better. xoxo

I really dont know anything about reversals but I do know thats how I felt for a little while, sick and depressed and even had to get stretched twice and they may do it once more. I'm feeling alot better thanks to the procedures and some good ol Wellbutrin. All I can say is, hang in there...it gets better...I was definitely there & I feel normal again, almost 2 months post op.
I just found your posts. You haven't been in for awhile. I hope you're okay. Check in here, if you see this, will you?
