I’ve been approved for a revision and was set on getting a gastric sleeve after having the band removed. Now I’m wondering whether it would be better to go for a gastric bypass because they seem to be fail proof. What do you think?
Getting the bypass surgery might mean losing more weight, but it also means taking more daily vitamins and experiencing greater side effects that I didn’t want to deal with. Look into all that before you make your final decision.
I think VSG patients are less likely to experience dumping syndrome, which is a big plus to me. I want to be able to work, exercise, and socialize without having to worry about my lunch wrecking havoc.
