Stomaphyx, the Gastric Bypass Revision

Stomaphyx2 Here is an interesting news with video from a woman that need a revision on her Gastric Bypass. The procedure chosen by the doctor was the "Stomaphyx".

The report also claims that 20% of the gastric bypass procedures needs a revision because they fail. I truly don't believe it. Read for yourself here.

Its totally true. I know more people that have failed gastric bypass (in various versions) or been killed by the surgery than I know people that were helped by it! I have personal friends that have had it, and are miserable despite having lost some weight. They are sick all the time.
Others I know get around the surgery by "grazing", and so the limitations caused by the surgery don't work.

well, you can't eat like a pig, even a little pig, and sit on your ass all day and expect to stay thin. the surgery is a dam good tool put its not a miracle panacea.

How many people do you know who've had wls??? Sounds like you are part of some unfortunate club. I do PERSONALLY know several people who have had surgery, me being one, who have had nothing but success with their surgeries. I have lost 145 lbs. (from 270 to 125) and have had follow-up labs and testing which have revealed that I am the healthiest I have ever been! I take multi-vites and eat what I want, just in much, much smaller amounts. Sure, I have bad days (I miss buttered popcorn at the movies!!) but nothing I experience makes me wish I hadn't done it. No more sleep apnea, no more diabetes. I feel better - and look way better. My self-esteem is better, I am not depressed any more. Wow. Yeah, most people gain some of their weight back, but total "failure" isn't something I have seen in any of my wls mates, and I'm nearly 4 years out (and at the same weight for 2.5 yrs). Some people are destined to be losers in life. Sounds like you have managed to surround yourself with people who are even more miserable than you. Hope you find what makes you happy. I have.

Someone had asked if this procedure was done on patients who had not undergone previous WLS. I don not know the answer to that, however, here is an experimental surgery that my friend recently had done in St. Louis. It's an incision-less procedure called TOGA. It sounds similar to this procedure but it is a primary WLS not a revisional procedure. The link has a great video animation of the procedure.

Jenny

Sorry, here is the URL for the TOGA procedure: http://www.wlshelp.com/toga-weight-loss.html .

RN David

For a senior limited with physical activity, unhealthy weight gain is hard to deal with. Surgery was considered as an option but, failed. As a different approach, our patient with Doctor Rafael was recommended with Roca Labs gastric bypass no surgery for treatment for over 80 lbs excess weight treatment. Whichever way, best of luck!
