    Hi @Arabella4535   and @ThereseB  !!
    All I can advise, is that you,   @Arabella4535  :
    * 'Research, research, research'. 
    *  "Google"  all that you can.  There is plenty of info out there.  But, please, do not  get sucked into other 'victims'  sob tales.    
    * Read other folks blogs.
    * See your GP, and get a referral to a/or more bariatric surgeon,
    * And maybe check out folks who promote a LCHF lifestyle e.g. 
    You need to define what you mean by "successes to relate"
      i.e. do you mean kg lost?  BMI loss? 
    Body fat % loss?
    Height/weight %?   (this is the better predictor of overall health than e.g.  waist measurement.);
    waist measurement.?
    All the best!

    Well done @soul sister on hitting the devil's number again!
    Re alcohol - my downfall is gin and diet tonic (and I have ruined some teeth), followed by low-carb beer, followed by wine.
    And yesterday I was tempted at the supermarket, bought and consumed BBQ snacks.  Back onto the straight and narrow today.  I want to get 4 kg off by Christmas.

    I'm sorry that none of the recent sleevers have responded to your post.
    I guess the only thing to do is to read blogs!
    Wishing you all the best for tomorrow, and for an uneventful recovery.

    Not happy Jan.  I now weigh the same as I did at the beginning of the year, up this week 860 gm this week to 49.98 kg.   However, I have dropped body fat percentage by 5 % since the beginning of this year.  That's a loss of 2.49 kg of fat.  I am happy with that.
    I am going to stick to LCHF and try to remain alcohol free (have been so now 6 days).

    Hi @Arabella4535 and welcome.
    How to get reliable information whether or not Gastric Bypass Surgery is the best surgery for me?
    It's up to you to research, research, research.  There is plenty of reliable, peer-reviewed published research out there. And to take the advice of the Bariatric Surgeon who you shall consult with.
    Does anyone have any information about Renew Bariatrics?
    I hope that someone else responds to your queries on this forum - if not Google search for other Weight Loss Surgery (WLS) groups, read up, and ask questions.  Also, Google search for reviews on "Renew Bariatrics".
    Does anyone have Gastric Bypass Surgery done in Renew Bariatrics?

    I am sorry that things haven't gone well for you.
    I've never been banded so can't comment on issues regarding that.
    But can only wish you the best.

    Weighing the same as two weeks ago - 49.12 kg, BMI 20.8
    I haven't got around to doing the probiotics, but am feeling better for having taking the iron supplements.
    Had a couple of hideous days here re the heat   .  If I had known that it was 36c I would have given in and put the a/c on, but as it was forecast for lower, I tried to stick it out  .  (I have thermoregulatory problems, and am heat intolerant as part of the neurological problems I have with ME/CFIDS).

    I am pleased that everyone else has had a good week (not talking weight loss), and hope that the next week still does.
