  1. VBG to bypass revision no results

    Thank you all for the replies!!! I try to keep my protein at least 60 to 70 a day and carbs under 40 to 50...,that's what my NUT told me to concentrate on...... I haven't been able to go to the gym for serious exercise for the last 3 to 4 months due to the back issues but I walk like a madwoman.... I'm an administrator of an assisted living facility and I get way over 10,000 steps a day just in the 10 hours I am there working....I'm very hands with the residents and staff so its difficult to keep me tied down to a desk, with the first surgery that's what I did mainly was walk and the weight just seemed to melt off. This entire thing even has my endocrinologist baffled, he said try some phentermine ( thinking I was actually eating too much) so I said ok doc I will try anything at this point.... 3 months later still no weight loss.....baffling to me......I'm beginning to think something else is going on inside there that is preventing me from losing the weight
  2. VBG to bypass revision no results

    Hi everyone, I had a vertical banded gastroplasty in 1993 went from 330 down to about 140 lbs...... Many years later and a back injury, poor food choices, a failed spinal fusion and then several caudal injections every three months for two years ( to ease the back pain the steroids also helped me regain about 50 lbs). In August of 2015 I had a revision to a gastric bypass, the surgeon said he had to remove most of my stomach due to scarring from the previous surgery......I just had my year surgiversary and I am sooooooo frustrated..... I've only been able to take and keep off about 15 total pounds....I know our bodies lose slower with a revision but this is just crazy... I barely take in 1000 calories a day.... If there is anything I can say I know I'm doing wrong is I know I need to drink more water....but that can't be the reason I'm stuck like this... My question is this, has anyone else had these issues? Or am I the only one?
