Common Questions and Answers about Not losing weight after gastric bypass


Avatar n tn Gastric bypass. Not sleeve.
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.

611067 tn?1458591483 The endoscope has been changed to November 7th instead. So, that's good, it's sooner rather than later!!!! Because I don't have pancreatitis, I decided to eat what my family had for dinner last night - ribeye steak. I only ate a small portion, but today my stomach is hurting like it did before. So, I guess I need to stick to the sweet potatos, black beans, garbonzo beans, protein drinks, bananas and the SF/FF pudding I've been eating.
Avatar f tn I really do not know what to tell you!!!! I had gastric bypass in October of 2003. Now, I did lose a total of 140 pounds and kept it off for quite a while... But, now I am having the problem with gaining all of my weight back and problem with my intestines being twisted all up and not functioning correctly and now it has been almost 10 years and my stomach pouch has reconnected to the regular stomach pouch and not allowing me to dump food as needed....

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.

Avatar m tn I would like to know if anyone has done the HCG diet after having Gastric bypass? I had Gastric bypass surgery 8 yrs ago with much success,but the weight is coming back and wanted to know if HCG would work .
Avatar n tn I had gastric bypass just about 6 years ago and just recently had lab work drawn and my GGT level was elevated. What could be going on? I do drink wine/beer just about every night. My other liver enzymes are not elevated at this time. I have started having some nausea and vomiting. I don't have an appetite and have lost a large amount of weight recently. Total weight loss since gastric bypass is somewhere between 145 and 150 pounds. Are there any other tests I should have done?
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 f tn Hi patches79, Your apprehension about gastric bypass surgery is justified. I had heard of this type of surgery and now I've spent the last twenty minutes or so learning what's involved and especially gastic bypass complications. I started my research by googling gastic bypass which led me to a number of websites. I choose to read from Wikipedia as I like the Wikipedia format.
3106099 tn?1341488881 I had an RNY gastric bypass 2 years ago and have lost 130lbs. I just found out I am pregnant finally after trying for so long. Is my pregnancy going to be harder due to the surgery?
Avatar n tn I had gastric bypass done 10 years ago and in the last 3 have been gaining the weight back. I am wondering if I can have the lapband done to make the tummy pouch smaller again?

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 A weight loss surgery is recommended only if medical management of excess weight is not possible or the patient is not responding to it. Also, just weight is not a parameter—person’s height, waist, body surface area, BMI etc are all considered. First the doctor will assess him, take detailed medical history, rule out causes of weight gain with appropriate tests (diabetes, hypothyroidism, adrenal gland problem, anemia, liver and kidney problems), assess his diet, physical activity level etc.
Cat I had bariatric surgery, gastric bypass surgery two years ago, lost 170 lb, then 3 months ago I stopped smoking and now I am putting weight back on, 8 to 11 lbs, so far, I worked so hard to get to where I am, I am glad I stopped smoking but afraid of the weight gain, lost on what to do now.
Avatar m tn I have lost 15 lbs from my pre-double bypass surgery weight, half of which has been during the 7 weeks since the surgery. .Is this normal? This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/868095'>Weight Loss Prior/Post Heart Surgery</a>.
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..
Avatar m tn Plus, you can very easily regain all of your weight back after this surgery. You have to continue eating small amounts frequently and what you eat is very similar to a diabetic's diet. Watch Al Roker on the Today Show, he will pack on 40-50 pounds and have to start eating properly again, and he's had by-pass surgery.
