    Revision Stories?

    I had a revision in late May and have lost 20 pounds in 7 weeks. The inches are coming off too- 6 inches off waist, 2 in off thighs, hips and arms. What is your progress since March?

    Apollo Revision Questions

    How did your procedure go? I just had it done 3 1/2 weeks ago after having gastric bypass 15 years ago. I have lost 11 pounds so far but lots of inches as I am exercising everyday.
  4. I’m curious how much weight others have lost with the revision? It is just like having the bypass again so I think I will lose quite a bit but my dr said only 20-40 pounds.
  5. I just had the overstitch to fix my enlarged stoma on Tuesday. My pouch was still small. I had gastric bypass 15 years ago went from 250 to 165 had two babies and kept 20 pounds with each one. I had become lazy with drinking with meals and carbs here and there so I think this will get me back on track. I did have terrible acid reflux after the surgery and spent the first day and a half throwing up white foam that was stuck in my esophagus but am tolerating clear liquids now. Down 6 pounds already. My dr also prescribed an appetite suppressant that I will begin tomorrow. He said better success comes with doing both. I will keep updating and fingers crossed this helps me lose the 40 pounds or more!
