Hello fellow gastric ByPass friends. surgery in 2005. Felt great for 2 years and lost a lot of weight. Gained weight now, at 180 and not happy. It seems like my health as went down hill since I had the surgery. I can't keep vitamins down, now have diverticulitis, breathing issues, tired all the time, heartburn, and not able to keep food down. Any meat does not agree with me so, I am not getting my protein. Putting food in blender and eating is for the birds... can't handle that either. I heard that there is another surgery that you can do with the gastric ByPass and you will feel better and lose the weight. I really thing it is the lapBand procedure. I don't know if I am correct and I wished all of the people that gained so much weight or starting to have issues that we can get together and make them redo our surgeries because we used insurance and really we did not really get what we wanted. I choosed this procedure to get healthy and of course to lose weight. I want to be healthy more than any thing in the world. If you know anything please post. Thank you and I wish all of you great health and happiness. View Thread
