Unrelated : This seems to be unrelated to the bypass, and may be secondary to something you're consuming. Try keeping a log of what you take in, and correlate that to the symptom gettin better or worse. If you're getting worse, or this persists, see your primary care provider for a proper evaluation. Hope this helps!
