Stop weight loss: Usually, weight loss tapers off and stops around a year to a year and a half after bypass surgery. If you are under a year out from surgery, i wouldn't worry about it. If you are several years out, make sure you eat enough food everyday. Some surgeons bypass too much of your intestinal tract and that can cause excessive weight loss.

Both similar: The sleeve and bypass work in almost all patients. Our experience is to expect about an 80% excess body weight loss with the bypass and 70% with the sleeve.

Both are great. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Gastric bypass: That depends on your height. If you are 5'3" and have no medical problems, you would qualify.

Had gastric bypass-gained half of weight list back, but I still can't eat normally, & I seldom get hungry. Can't eat meat or much fruit. Any thoughts?
Eat solids, no sips: Weight regain after bypass is usually due to eating foods that go down comfortably. There is a tendency to fall into a pattern o slider foods (soups), sipping with food, and snacks. In essence you are defeating the surgery to lose weight, you need to eat foods that pack the pouch (bread, chicken, etc) and fill you up. Don't drink with or after meals or you will wash food down. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
