X's Q & A

Q&A: Is it possible to revise a gastric sleeve into a full gastric bypass?

Yes, it is possible.  However, keep in mind that there will be only a small gastric remnant if a sleeve has already been performed, as opposed to having a large gastric remnant with a gastric bypass is performed as the initial operation.  Without a gastric remnant, should problems arise with the gastric bypass, the options for solving the problem are more limited without having a large gastric remnant.
