Tough question: It depends on the type of surgery you had (traditional roux-en-y, sleeve procedure, or banding). In general, you usually get one shot with the surgical procedures except the band. If your band was removed for some reason, it is likely it could be replaced. A gastric bypass specialist could review your specific circumstances.
