Stretched Stoma Revision Gastric Bypass
Try Bagel Test: After a bypass, you can test your pouch size and emptying by a bagel test. Eat mini bagels until full (in morning without any fluids). Record number of bagels (could be up to two for normal). Then wait 30 minutes. Dont drink anything. Try eating mini bagels again. Ideally, most of the pouch should still be full and you should only be able to eat one. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Had gastric bypass 12 yrsago. Lost 130#. Gains about 95 back. Would weight watchers work for me. . Can't afford a revision.?
Absolutely : Yes weight watchers, jenny craig or any of the other weight loss programs would work. It would certainly help if you worked closely with a nutritionist and a trainer at te gym. You proved to yourself already that when you had the right tool and you used it, you lost weight. You simply need to use a new tool to help yourself in the right direction. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Big pouch, outflow: The pouch does not usually stretch out. Above picture is the outflow from the pouch. When it is this big, some narrowing will help. Sclerotherapy is a simple 15 min endoscopic option that we have found to be helpful to reduce outflow size and help people stay full longer.

I had gastric bypass 5 years ago. I lost 100lbs, but have gained 50 lbs back. Might I be a candidate for revision surgery?
Eating behavior KEY: Tips for eating success: don't drink fluids with meals (washes food down); avoid high fat snacks (chips, crackers, peanut butter); avoid sugar, eat more solid food that "packs your pouch", avoid too many slider foods that go right through. Can also see your surgeon for endoscopy or solid meal UGI to check size of pouch and pouch outflow size. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ok, wondering if I need revision. Had gastric bypass, lost 100, gained 50 back. Can't eat meat, except for ground beef. Still throw up of eat too much?
Diagnosed me with bile induced gastritis. Wants to do a gastric bypass. In my 40's,(5'4", 203), but isn't there a less invasive answer?
Options: Probably theist popular weight loss operation at the moment is a sleeve gastrectomy. Its not really less invasive, but has less potential for long term side effects. There are also some newer endoscopic therapies, but they are not so effective. Ask your doctor if a consultation with a Bariatric surgeon is appropriate. Hope this helps! ...Read more
