Neither: Iy is my opinion that if you had a sleeve gastrectomy for morbid obesity, and it didn't work, there is not a reasonable expectation that another procedure will work. The operation is only one tool in a box that also must contain dietary modification and some calorie restriction, along with an exercise program and and a perspective that these changes are sustainable for the rest of your life.
