2015036 tn?1332997788 Hi maxithecat43, Do you mind if I ask you why you are having a gastric bypass? Have you fully researched gastric bypass, possible side effects which can be quite serious. Gastric bypass surgery like any other surgery as it is a surgery comes with the possibility of infection. I think you should be especially careful as you have MS. If you don't have to have the gastric bypass, you might want to reconsider.

Avatar f tn I had gastric bypass surgery in 1981. Recently I have been losing weight in leaps and bounds and my dr is afraid I may have blockage down near my stomach and if I'm not better by my next appt, he is going to send my to a Gastroenterologist. See I would eat and then throw up. Today I am fine, but the day is young. I have been taking nausea meds and also cough meds today and they seem to have helped. Could someone help if they have ever had this problem before.
Avatar n tn Normally if it was gastric bypass, the surgery cures gerd . by removing the stomach, there are few cells to produce acid. Question, have you gained weight back at all recently? What type of bypass did you have? There are a couple of different ways they do it.
Avatar f tn This last summer I went on the Keto diet, losing maybe 10 pounds. In my research to find out why I wasn’t losing weight, I found out the thyroid medication I’m on causes weight gain and makes it difficult to lose it. I’m desperate to lose weight. I’m wondering if I would be a candidate for gastric sleeve? Thank you.
Avatar f tn I am having gastric bypass on the 14 of Aug , I have put this off for so long but now have no other choice. Is there anyone out there that has gone through this and had blood clots? I think I am as ready as I can be but still a bit apprehensive about this.
1543146 tn?1293661166 Welcome to the gastroenterology community! In some of your posts you have mentioned that you can eat anything you want to now and have no problems eating and that you eat like a pig now. This is probably why you didn't lose very much weight. Gastric bypass only does so much. If you force yourself to eat a lot, you will gain weight. If you are eating unhealthy, you will gain weight.
Avatar f tn I had gastric bypass sugery three years ago and have lost 273 pounds and need to have the skin removed I need a tummy tuck and mid body lift and breast lift & implants, and arm lift. Needless to say I need a lot of work after losing so much weight. My health insurance won't cover it and I can't afford to have it done is there any place that really does do pro bono work?
Avatar m tn Gastric bypass procedures (GBP) are any of a group of similar operations that first divides the stomach into a small upper pouch and a much larger lower "remaining" pouch and then re-arranges the small intestine to connect to both. Surgeons have developed several different ways to reconnect the intestine, thus leading to several different GBP names.
Avatar f tn My psychiatrist has recommended Lithium or Depakote. My biggest concern is the weight gain. I had the Gastric Bypass about 2 1/2 years ago & have had great success, losing 150 pounds. I've been going to therapy/psychiatrists ever since I graduated high school back in 2005 but before that, my emotional issues/behavior were always ignored b/c my parents didn't believe in therapy. I was on various antidepressants for a few years and nothing ever helped me.
Avatar n tn Overall, most people WILL lose weight if they restrict their food enough, so if he is not losing weight then he needs to eat even less. But this does not mean the weight will stay off or even continue to drop. He may need some medication help as well. Talk to your husband about the nutritionist etc, as well as speaking with his doctor about medications that can help(Orlistat and Meridia are both approved for this).
Avatar m tn The main point was, no matter what happens weight-wise, there's something about the surgery all by itself that cures the diabetes. If you compare the risks of having the disease versus having the surgery, it may be worth it.
939489 tn?1260887943 Hi I have been looking for posts of women whom have had gastric bypass and are now or have been pregnant in the past. I had gastric bypass over three years ago and I am now pregnant. I would love to find a group or forum where i can talk to women who are willing to share their experiences. Personally, i would like to know if anyone whom had the surgery has gone through any of the things I am currently experiencing.

Avatar f tn Before they do a surgery like gastric bypass you have to loose a certain amount of weight before they will work on you. My mom had it done about 5 years ago and she was on a strict diet plan..its expensive and I believe with diet and exercise you can achieve the same results..
690240 tn?1227301359 my wife has had the gastric-bypass back in july of 2008, how will the gastric bypass affect her sex drive.
Avatar f tn Hi, it depends on the cause. The reason the bypass was done. If it was done to lose weight, then if it is corrected, you may gain weight again. Regards.
120566 tn?1375033423 Sometimes after a gastric bypass, the GI tract has difficulty absorbing everything that it needs and you may need to supplement. Your doctor and nutritionist can help you figure out what is going on. Good luck!
Avatar n tn I am considering gastric bypass surgery and was wondering how u r doing now if u resolved ur trouble with highs after meals. wondering if u ever have trouble with lows.
611067 tn?1458591483 He thinks that maybe there is something wrong near the connection sites from my gastric bypass. So, he has me scheduled for an endoscope on Nov. 11th. But, I've decided to keep eating the way I've been because I have more energy and I'm losing more weight!!! I've lost 14 lbs. already!!! The bad news today was that for my chronic pain I am not allowed to use ibuprofen or exedrine or aspirin at all anymore!!! It's dangerous following the gastric bypass.

Avatar f tn And then perhaps you will go back to the eating habits pre baby and be able to maintain the weight again. Can you talk to the office that performed the gastric bypass? Working with them AND your ob may be the best thing.
Avatar n tn I have gained almost all weight lost back. My question is this. After having a gastric bypass and gaining back the weight, would it be safe to try the new "slimball" to perhaps help me relose this weight.
