That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer to your question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I discover an decent answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably can help you..
I'm sorry I can't be help to you.....but you'll be in my thoughts and prayers....!!!.
Revisions are surprisingly common for folks who had their GBS.
3 or more years out. If you have a qualified bariatric surgeon who has good experience with revisions and what contributes to the need for them, I think you are going to be very happy with the results. A good place to find others to talk to is.
Bighotmama, was there some modification of RNYGB procedure 3 years ago? I'm not understanding why some people require these revisions. Any info on the rate of this obviously difficult complication?..
Jerry, revision is the generic term for any.
To correct problems with past GBS surgeries. There are all kinds of reasons it becomes necessary, including ulceration of the pouch and poor surgical technique in the original.
So sorry you are having to go through this, can you tell me what some of the symptoms are for the pocket not emptying and also the blocking? I have been having such terrible pains in my stomach for about 2 months, it comes and go now but when it's here it is like a knife cutting thru me. It happens even if I am not eating or drinking at the time...
My cousin had to have it done twice, second time everything was great. my paryers are with you, God bless...
Thank you to all who responded to my discusion Sharon..
I had gastric bypass in 2000. I started having really severe heartburn and stomach pains about 2 months ago. I went to a different bariatric surgeon since I don't live in the same state I got it done the 1st time and he told me not only had my pouch stretched out too big but the small instestine attached to my pouch also stretched out. This causes Medifast food to sit and not be digested causing heartburn and stomach pains. I wound up having to go to the ER with severe stomach pains and got admitted and had the revision a few days later...
I'd be interested in knowing if these were RNY surgeries, or something else. I know they were done differently with a much higher complication/failure rate not so long ago. I think that's important info to include in threads such as this. I'm suffering from the effects of an old fashioned.
, at least second hand. A neighbor is helping me pack/move and she farts uncontrollably. Sometimes she feels it coming and runs outside, sometimes not. Yesterday it was so bad I was gagging and then finally had to go throw up. Whatever.
She had, I want no part of lol..
I have never heard of this before but my thoughts and prayers are with you. Please take care of yourself and remain positive. It must be so frustrating..
Hopefully someone else had some.
Of this. Good luck and God bless you..
