Someone related to me had it done, he looks amazing and is doing great!!!June 11, 2012 7:02 pm at 7:02 pm #919783mobicoParticipant
I am close with a world-renowned gastroenterologist (Dr. Julian Paz, from Har Nof), and he has told me that he recommends this surgery over any other option.June 11, 2012 8:13 pm at 8:13 pm #919784
I had it done. Hey Bored, STOP slacking off. Seriously, it is a very viable option over bypass and lap bandJune 11, 2012 10:49 pm at 10:49 pm #919785oomisParticipant
what does it involve?June 12, 2012 6:51 pm at 6:51 pm #919786
They remove a portion of the stomach. The portion which is removed has the ability to stretch and what’s left looks similar to a sleeve rather than a football. Moreover, various peptides and hormones such as Ghrelin (which tells the brain that you’re hungry) are produced in the part of the stomach that is removed. Aside from not having nearly as much room for food as before, you’re brain is no longer tricked into thinking that it still hungry even after one has eating more than enough food. If you’ve ever seen guys chow down a 2 lb plate of chulent on a Thursday night – you’ll understand.June 13, 2012 12:52 am at 12:52 am #919787golden momMember
from my understanding it is very dangerous you do loose alot of weight but can gain it back because there is not adjustments like the band.
the band if something happens and is undetected a person can die
the band is the easiest and the safest of all of them and your stomach doesnt have a chance to strech out cuz you can keep on doing adjustmentsJune 13, 2012 4:22 am at 4:22 am #919788YW Moderator-42Moderator

You can gain the weight back – “eat around” – any surgery. The Lap Band is the biggest pain because you have to keep going back for adjustments. It’s a foreign body that can slip and/or cause infection.
The sleeve is the first part of the RNY procedure that also involves rerouting part of the intestines. Sometimes extremely obese people have the sleeve first because it’s too risky to have the whole RNY procedure done at once.
Google RNY for more info.June 13, 2012 10:38 am at 10:38 am #919790bored at workParticipant
The band makes you anorexic because people adjust it the whole time, making it tighter and tighter until they get to a point where they can only eat a tiny bit of food and then they go and throw up. I know someone who had it done, she lost more than half of her weight and every time after she ate she had to leave the room to “go throw up”.June 13, 2012 12:49 pm at 12:49 pm #919791

I was able to avoid sleeve surgery by buying cufflinks.June 13, 2012 2:51 pm at 2:51 pm #919793Putting my two cents inMember
For those people who have had the sleeve gastrectomy, how much weight did you have to lose? How much have you lost so far–in what length of time? How much down time was there when you had the surgery? Is your mind and your stomach full/satisfied with the lesser amount of food intake? Or are you limited in the amount you can comfortably consume only to want to be eating more?June 13, 2012 3:35 pm at 3:35 pm #919794
mobico – “I am close with a world-renowned gastroenterologist (Dr. Julian Paz, from Har Nof), and he has told me that he recommends this surgery over any other option.”
I’d like to know why he recommends it over Gastric banding (Lap band)?June 13, 2012 4:01 pm at 4:01 pm #919795
gaslight -“The Lap Band is the biggest pain because you have to keep going back for adjustments. It’s a foreign body that can slip and/or cause infection.”
It’s a Maaleh that it can be adjusted, not a Chessoron. All surgeries can cause infections. It’s by far, IMHO the safest of the common weight-loss procedures.
“The sleeve is the first part of the RNY procedure that also involves rerouting part of the intestines.”
It might have been developed that way, but now some are using it as a stand alone.June 13, 2012 4:11 pm at 4:11 pm #919796
ih2ms -“If you’ve ever seen guys chow down a 2 lb plate of chulent on a Thursday night – you’ll understand.”
Did any of these guys consider moving to one of these real small out of town communities (Frum, of course), where there are no take-outs? If these people would move there -they would lose a lot of weight. Most things to eat have to be made from scratch. IMO, moving to these places would have long -term health lasting effects. They could just go for 6 months to a year. I know I’m not helping the Surgeons get richer, but they will never go out of business.June 13, 2012 4:44 pm at 4:44 pm #919797
There is a new procedure out there called – Gastric Plication. It has the benefit over the bypass (Roux en Y) & the Gastric sleeve that the change in the actual stomach is potentially reversible.August 14, 2012 1:27 pm at 1:27 pm #919798

I dont know if this topic is relevant anymore – but Im down about 85 lbs in 9 months (probably could be more if I worked out more). Most of the time I’m not terribly hungry at all- but when I am I try to be careful what I eat. Getting enough protein in the diet is paramount. I also try to avoid simple carbs as much as possible.
I agree with the person who brought up acid reflux or GERD in regard to the band. This is one of the reasons my doctor strongly urged me not to do the banding as I had a history of GERD.
As far as Gastric Plication (which is somewhat similar to the sleeve but they fold the stomach instead of removing part of it) is still in the trial stages in the US.January 9, 2013 3:16 pm at 3:16 pm #919799
I had the lap band done on me twice I had terrible experience reflux and a lot of pain and gaining Wight
I took it out B”H and done the sleeve I was back to work 3 days later I lost already 160 pounds
my advise for anyone DON’T DO THE BANDJanuary 9, 2013 9:19 pm at 9:19 pm #919800
I got news for you Mr. Daivd – that no matter what procedure you do – if you don’t change your eating habits the procedure will eventually fail and you will gain “Wight”!January 9, 2013 9:33 pm at 9:33 pm #919801akupermaParticipant
There is overwhelming evidence that the safest and best way to lose weight involves eating less and exercising more.January 9, 2013 11:49 pm at 11:49 pm #919802
looks like you don’t have a overweight problem
90% overweight people do not eat allotJanuary 10, 2013 2:25 am at 2:25 am #919803mewhoParticipant
wow, i thought it was surgery for the upper arms that get saggy and baggy (also known as wings)January 10, 2013 6:14 am at 6:14 am #919804

You don’t have to eat a lot to gain weight, even eating a little of the wrong kinds of food will make you gain weight.January 10, 2013 6:28 am at 6:28 am #919805yankdownunderMember
I think personally akuperma is spot on. How do I know this, because I personally so far have lost twenty five pounds. I would like to lose an additional twelve to fourteen pounds. This was done by eliminating cakes and cookies, and exercising on an exercise bicycle. Start juicing fruits and vegetables for weight loss and health. There is so much information available by googling on line for juice recipes. Public libraries have health sections with juice books, as well as diet and recipe books on their shelves waiting to be read. If I lost weight anybody can. Why go through surgery when weight loss can be achieved, by substituting what one eats for other foods, portion control exercise and more.January 10, 2013 12:24 pm at 12:24 pm #919806NechomahParticipant
To be honest, people who undergo any kind of gastric surgery – bypass, sleeve, band, etc., have MUCH more to lose than 35-40 pounds. You are right in saying that it is better to lose weight naturally than to undergo major surgery, but when a person is faced with trying to lose 100+ pounds naturally, the prospect of controlling portions can be overwhelming and exercise virtually impossible due to the excess weight. It can become a vicious cycle.January 10, 2013 5:17 pm at 5:17 pm #919807
Nechomah -“but when a person is faced with trying to lose 100+ pounds naturally, the prospect of controlling portions can be overwhelming and exercise virtually impossible due to the excess weight. It can become a vicious cycle.”
You’re correct, but any procedure will Not stop the vicious cycle.
After any procedure you need to watch what and how much you eat and also excercise. This will halt the vicious cycle. Otherwise eventually you will regain weight.January 13, 2013 5:31 pm at 5:31 pm #919808AbeFParticipant
A persaon who REALLY wants to lose weight (not just by saying it.) does not need any Band/Sleeve/pills etc. All that you need is True will power and nothing could stand in your way!!! i personally lost over 160 POUNDS all naturally Because i was determinated and REALLY wanted!January 14, 2013 8:29 pm at 8:29 pm #919809
WOW YOU AMAZING …..
