I am 16 years out from a roux en y bypass. I have gained a hundred pounds back, but still am 95 pounds less than my starting point. I have always had issues surgery wise, as I still have a hole where my incision was and it only recently stopped leaking. I also have a hernia on my incision line. I'm a mess. I would like to have my hernia fixed and a revision done at the same time. Anyone been in this boat?
I am 14 years out of gastric bypass. I recently went to my doctor's looking to get another surgery because I was gaining too much weight back and thought maybe my bypass had enlarged too much. Instead of the surgery he recommended I go to a colleague of his who does nutritional support for people out of surgery. So far he has suggested that I examine the calories in what I am drinking and trying to stay under a 1400 calorie diet. I did this and discovered that I was drinking most of my calories. A simple change there and I started losing the weight. I don't know what else he has in store for me but he seems to know his stuff.
I had a hernia taken care of a few years ago that was due to my bypass. I have also gained some weight back. The only problems I have now really are deficiencies in protein, iron, etc... Good luck to you, sorry to hear that you are having so many problems after surgery.😔
