Hi, I had my jejunolileal bypass in 1972 and it is still as the Dr. left it then. I am wondering if anyone has had a CT scan of the lower GI to see what is happening. My doctor wants me to have one to rule out cancer. Once my thyroid finally got corrected 3 years ago, I have lost 120 pds, and my doctor is concerned. But he is not familiar with our problem and our absorption. I crush my thryroid pills, disolve in water and drink in order to absorb the thyroid. I am read here that the body adapts and the bowels increase in circumference. Anybody know about that. Thanks.View Thread
