    Thumbs down Plication didn't work at all...

    Two Years ago I went and had a Plication Bariatric Surgery in Mexico . I have never lost weight and have gained about 25 pounds during that time. I would like to know if anyone had this surgery and had no results. I have noticed some swollen area around my scar and I am always hungry. I am thinking of having it un-done. Has anyone had the plication undone? I am wondering what happens to your stomach after this? Any thoughts???

    A swollen scar after two years? that's not normal. You should contact your surgeon to ask him about that and also let him know that the surgery was not successful, and ask him if he has options to offer.
    But try to contact other surgeons as well if you want to have an other surgery done, just to have other opinions.
    Take care.

    To be honest, I had to google what plication was. Can I ask what made you go with that procedure? I did some research just now and it looks like a newer procedure with the studies regarding the results stating the data is too limited. I'd definitely speak with another surgeon. From what I read about the procedure it sounds like when they folded the stomach to diminish its size the fold didn't stay shut. And I agree with Sandra, your scar should not still feel swollen. I'd research any surgeon you intend on going to for reviews before making an appointment. I'm sorry you had a procedure that didn't work. Hope it all works out for you.
