I was correct in thinking that people don't really blog that much anymore about this, or .. not that I can find on google anyway.
I have found a few re-sleeved people on Instagram. Most of the accounts were private, understandably, as its a platform for sharing photos, so I totally get that (I would likely do the same). There were a couple of accounts that were open and had some good positive data on being re-sleeved and did a little poking around on their posts to see what they thought and how it went. That was a positive!
Sadly, all the WLS/Obesity forums I've found on re-sleeving revision have been almost unanimously negative towards the person that is asking about getting it done.
Its one of those strange things about WLS surgery, there is a sort of hyper-competitiveness over how it has worked for some people, who is "doing it the best", etc. Mostly I've noted that if it is not working for someone - there seems to be a significant amount of finger pointing to the person that is not successful.
I was laying awake last night thinking about what the surgeon might say to me on Friday about not being as successful as I could have been and what level of "disappointment" he is going to have. I was already lining up a bunch of excuses, but the truth is....
This is hard. No matter if you have surgery or not. If I was able to control this myself, I wouldn't have been in for surgery in the first place.
I thought back to my first meeting with him and remembered how NON-judgmental he was. So I hope that I get met with the same amount of care for my feelings again, and then I can move forward with finding out if I meet all the right criteria.
I did find another great medical article on the Re-Sleeve: Better Results in Weight Loss after the Second Gastrectomy in Re-Sleeve Gastrectomy
Very promising material. Here is a nice graph that shows the results.
