I Had A Gastric Bypass 2 Years Ago Is It Safe To Perform A 10 Day Cleanse
Clean is good: If you mean a 10 day meal replacement with a balanced low sugar shake like medifast or glucose-controlled boost (plus all vitamins) it should be ok. However, the best diet to work with a bypass is a solid meal (protein and veggies) with no sipping, fewer slider foods, no sweets and no bad snacks.

I had gastric bypass 2.5 yrs ago. Im currently doing the standard process 21 day cleanse. Im on day 7. I feel weak & tired. Is this cleanse safe 4 me?
No cleanse: There is no "standard" cleanse of any type, let alone one that lasts 21 days. If it makes you feel weak and tired, it is probably doing you more harm than good. I would stop it, and maintain good hydration, don't eat too many calories, make sure the food that you do eat had all the vitamins and minerals, and take vitamin supplements as appropriate after a gastric bypass. ...Read more

8-9 calories per lb: We have been doing indirect calorimetey on postop bariatric patients. We are finding a total metabolism of about 8-9 calories per pound. So, if you are now 200 lb, them you would ear about 1700 cal per day to maintain your weight. If you wanted to lose wt, then you can eat 1200-1400 cal per day. Eating 400 fewer cal per day would allow you to lose 1 pound in 9 days (3500 cal for 1 lb). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I had gastric bypass 2 years ago & my hair is very thin. What specific vitamins can I take for hair growth/volume?
10yrs after bypass: Hopefully nothing. We hope that your bypass anatomy stays the same and that you maintain your weight loss. People can regain weight if they overeat, eat junk food, or don't exercise. You have to constantly work at it. Sometimes the weight gain is due to stretching of the pouch or anastomosis or both. In general though, people do fine 10 years out from surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
