Gas: Certain eating behaviors early after bariatric surgery can result in more bloating and discomfort.

Gastric sleeve leak...had CT scan, GI swallow test, and endoscopy and all show no leak. When drink blue dye it shows up on jp drain???? Why
Limits of studies: All above studies done to detect leak have their limitations and sometime clinical suspicion is the best test!!!
