Gastric bypass (Roux-en-Y)

I had the surgery and after a bit I was doing great then my weight started to come back and now I am bigger than before and can't even look in the mirror and I think about my weight all the time and now I am going back to the doctor that did my surgery to see something happened to my sleeve because now I find Iam hungry all the time

I had my surgery back in 2009, i lost a lot of wieght to the point my family was scared for me and i ended up in the hospital with a lot of health problems including organ failure due to my blood count , after that i started gaining wieght as well and then in 2017 i got preggers with my lil one and gained nearly 70 lbs with him, after wards i had decided to breastfeed him hoping that would help with some wieght loss but due to how much i had to ear it didnt help at all so i decided to do a pouch reset start with the basics like the liquid diet then the pureed portion and so on so you can retrain your tummy to not want so much but then for most part its all mental and keeping a food journal shows just how much we actual consume in a dayand not even realize it

Hi Amy. Welcome to the group. I am sorry your surgery has not worked out that well for you. I have not personally had any surgery but have heard of others that have gained back weight after the surgery. Most of us usually gain back weight is because we have such a hard time adjusting to a new life long way of eating after loosing weight. Meaning eating much less calories, etc. Unfortuantely weight loss surgery is not a life long fix. Just something to help when one's health is in jeopardy due morbid obesity. It is more for a quick jump start. I so understand how hard it is to break old habits and stick to new ones. Most reasons for hunger after eating a meal is because one is eating too many carbs ( bread, pasta, white rice, potatoes, etc) or sugars . Even artificial sugar will create cravings and hunger. So try eliminating or greatly reducing these food items. And most of us don't realize that our portions are just too much for maintaining weight. It all adds up quickly. So portion control is a must too. Good idea to talk your doctor as soon as possible . Do you see a nutritionist ? I have heard they are very helpful and really a good idea especially for those that have had the surgery. Best wishes and good luck to you. Hugs too.
