Need Hernia Repair and Revision Surgery After Gastric Bypass
I had gastric bypass surgery about five years ago....
- 28 Dec 2009
I had gastric bypass surgery about five years ago. Roux-en-y gastric bypass was successful but I have stretched out pouch and a ventral hernia developed. I have now regained about 50% of the weight I lost (I initially lost 130 pounds but have gained about 65 back) and also developed a large ventral hernia.
I need to have ventral hernia repair and I am also contemplating revision surgery to reduce the size of the pouch back to where it was when I first had surgery.
Is it possible to have gastric bypass revision surgery at the same time as the ventral hernia repair?
My doctor is no longer practicing.
