    Hi and welcome! I'm glad to see you here. I don't recall anyone here having your specific complication, but there are several people who, for other good reasons, revised from gastric bypass to the DS, and you might want to start a thread asking for their input.

    I know from your communication … elsewhere...that you have a surgeon you like and trust, and that's great, but keep in mind that if your surgeon doesn't do the DS, that option won't be offered to you. If you have some other option that is what you want, great, but if not, you will need to look elsewhere. In any event, I always think it's best to know and consider all your options to come to an informed decision.

    Welcome shelly culvershelly culver
    To start a new thread, locate the forum you want. Click on it. Once in the forum you want, on the right hand side (you might have to scroll down a bit), you will see in an orange rectangle “Post New Thread”. Click it and a box comes up for you to type in your post. Give it a title (being descriptive helps but not excessively wordy). Then hit Post Reply. You should see it working to post at the very top right. Give it a min. Hitting post reply again can end up with duplicates.

    I suspect you want the revision forum.
