Gastric bypass: It seems as if things went OK for three years and now it has changed. Without too much delay please discuss this with your primary doctor. Perhaps more importantly, you must see a Psychologist regarding your depression and anxiety. Things will get better but not overnight. You will do fine! Please keep me posted. Read more
Yes: Pedialyte is formulated with just the right amounts of fluids and electrolytes to replace what you need. Coconut water has almost no electrolytes, and many of the gatorades have way to much sugars for use in gastroenteritis. However, with an adult or older child, any fluids are better than none and resultant dehydration. Read more
Rx like anyone else: Does she have GI or ent/respiratory manifestations? If high fever, shortness or breath or chest pain, dehydrated--then take her to the er. If typical flu distress, without co-morbidities that place her at risk, then treat her the same way you would treat yourself for the flu--fluids, rest, moderate analgesic use, symptom-based otc medication. (the gastric bypass does not contraindicate to these.). Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I had gastric bypass 2 weeks ago Would marijuana smoke do the same harm as cigarettes would to my new stomach?
Not usually: Tobacco smoke contains a number of substances that increase stomach acid and reduce the lower esophageal sphincter pressure, which increases reflux and esophagitis, while reducing the effectiveness of gastric mucous. Marijuana smoke does much less of this, but if you have had problems with peptic ulcer, gastritis or esophagitis, you are far better off not smoking ANYTHING. Read more
I had gastric bypass surgery on may 2nd 2012 and it's been great up till now I have and belching and having stomach pains radiating around my back?
Biliary colic: These may be new symptoms unrelated to the bariatric surgery. Weight loss increases risk and incidence of gallstones. Gallstones can cause biliary colic: belching, bloating, upper abdominal pain after eating fatty foods that radiates into back. Okay to get see your doc. An ultrasound of the gallbladder can lead to a diagnosis. Avoid big meals and fatty meals until you can get evaluated. Read more
Can I do the duodenal switch with a BMI of 27.5? Had gastric bypass 7 yrs ago. Gaining weight again. I exercise, but my stomach fits a lot of food!
No: Duodenal switch will not work in a patient that has undergone gastric bypass, since the food stream no longer goes by way of the duodenum. If you are gaining weight after a gastric bypass, you should see your surgeon or a specialized GI physician, who can determine the cause for weight gain. This is usually due to enlargement of the connection between the stomach pouch and the intestine. Read more
I had gastric bypass 6/2012 and today I am having minor surgery. My blood sugar is 46 they said not to eat after midnight but I don't have a stomach. Can I eat something or no? I'm worried
Hypoglycemia: Okay to treat your hypoglycemia with small glucose tablet, turn off your Insulin pump, lower long acting Insulin in preparation for surgery. The requirement to not eat, to have an empty stomach for surgery is for safety with control of your airway and anesthesia. Avoiding aspiration is essential to safe surgery. Be well.

I had the gastric bypass on 11/03 never had a problem had a baby in 12/13. I have been having stomach pains right after I eat. What can I do?
Please help! What is the difference between gastric bypass surgery, stomach stapling and gastric band surgery?
Bypass and band: Lap band is the safest and is reversible which attracts a lot of patients, but failure rates are high, it is easy to cheat, weight loss is slower. Bypass is the gold standard, been around for 50yrs, results in the greatest weight loss, highest cure rates for diabetes, but has a higher risk. Stomach stapling can mean many different things. You probably mean sleeve gastrectomy, also good, the newest. Read more
No, but not uncommon: Follow up with surgeon. Tested for h. Pylori? Can cause ulcers. Marginal ulcers usually on the intestinal side of the anastomosis (seam) not rare.
