    Two Weight Loss Surgeries?

    Not that I’m aware of. I have sleep apnea and acid reflux. Based on what I learned during orientation, people with a BMI of over 60 have a higher chance of complications with the RNY.

    Two Weight Loss Surgeries?

    Hey everyone!!!!! I just went to orientation on 3/22/18 and met with the surgeon the same day. I wasn't sure on if I wanted the sleeve or the RNY, the Dr. suggested that because my BMI is so high (62) that I should have the sleeve and if my acid re-flux/heartburn is worse or I do not have the desired weight loss results I could have the RNY why done 2-3 years after. Has anyone heard of this being done? I definitely do not want to go under the knife twice. I only am required to lose 13 lbs, I definitely want to lose more than the required to help lower my BMI.
