Gastric bypass: Yes. It may not be the best choice for everyone, the the bypass is the gold standard for weight loss operations. It's been around for over 50 yrs and is a proven operation. It is the best in terms of overall weight loss. It is also the best operation for patients with diabetes, heartburn/reflux, large hiatal hernias, or are very obese (bmi over 50). It should only be done by an experienced surgeon.

Gastric bypass: Very effective. In fact, it is the most effective weight loss operation when compared to the lap band and sleeve gastrectomy. In addition, it has nearly a 90% cure rate for type 2 diabetes. Most people lose between 65-70% of their excess body weight. So if you are 100lbs overweight, that's about 65-70lbs of weight loss at a year to 18 months.See 1 more doctor answer

I had gastric bypass (roux en y) and I have been taking calcium citrate but I found a gummy calcium triphosphate that I like. Are they equal?
Had roux en y(sp?) in 2001 i later found out w/ gastric bypass ibuprofen shouldn't be taken. Why? & any other things 2 be avoided? Im on a lot of meds
Ulcers: Ibuprofen and other NSAIDs cause ulcers ( marginal ulcers) at your gastric pouch connection site and it can bleed, cause pain or even rupture in that area , so avoid them, or use in low dose mixed with food and only with with PPI( nexium (esomeprazole) etc), however you MUST get permission from your surgeon before doing so another dangerous thing to avoid is SMOKING, it will do the same harm.

How to absorb more iron after having roux-n-y gastric bypass surgery since iron is absorbed in the beginning of your small intestines, which is bypassed after roux-n-y gastric bypass, where else can it be absorbed enough to keep your iron level up
Generally : Generally the malabsorption seen after a roux-en-y lasts for about 18 months and eventually diminishes, so iron absorption will likely improve at around that time. If you simply can't get adequate iron, make sure your doctor looks at your ferritin level and not just hemoglobin level. You may indeed benefit from iron infusion or if you happen to be a premenopausal women with a heavy period, you may benefit from discussing birth control pills to help diminish the degree of bleeding that occurs each month with your menstrual cycle.See 2 more doctor answers
