    Default considering going to Mexico for sleeve to MGB revision

    I never met goal with the sleeve and now I've gained a bit more. I'm 5'3 and 186. HW 222, LW 163. My divorce took a toll and my bad eating habits went haywire, then the death of my dad sent me on a whirlwind...and here I am today...still wanting to be 140.
    I really just want a normal weight.

    Welcome!!
    You've joined a very informative forum!

    I'm so sorry about your personal losses and I am sure you'll hear from many people who will be able to give you good information.

    Hang in there and I think that the fact you're thinking about a resleeve, maybe you've already made up your mind?

    I just got back from Monterrey Mexico where I had mgb after not the best luck with the sleeve. So far not bad. Still adjusting and trying to figure everything out but the pain was minimal and the dr was wonderful. Good luck.

    There are other forums out there that would be much more helpful for you, because of people who've had the kinds of WLS procedures you're now considering, e.g., mini gastric bypass, duodenal somethings, etc.

    The best one out there I've seen for this kind of information is www.obesityhelp.com. (Hope that link doesn't get suppressed. If it does it's obesity help dot com -- no spaces, obviously.)
