What happens if you gain back weight after gastric bypass surgery?

What happens if you gain back weight after gastric bypass surgery?

If you begin to regain weight after gastric bypass surgery, talk to your doctor: You may have a sense of what’s causing your weight gain. However, you may need a more thorough evaluation to determine what factors — medical, psychological, lifestyle — are involved in the weight gain. You may have gained weight after gastric bypass surgery because of changes in your stomach and intestine that allow you to eat more and absorb more calories. It's also possible that your diet and exercise habits have slipped, in which case you must typically lose the regained weight the old-fashioned way — both by reducing your calorie intake and increasing your physical activity. In some cases, a second surgery to repair — or redo — a gastric bypass may be appropriate. This is especially true if the anatomy of your stomach and small intestine have changed, such as with a fistula (additional connection between the stomach and intestine). However, a second surgery has an increased risk of complications, including infection, bleeding and leaks in the gastrointestinal tract. Because of these risks, gastric bypass surgery usually isn't redone if you regain weight because of poor diet or exercise habits. Gastric bypass surgery can be an effective treatment for obesity, and most people do lose weight after the procedure if they are adequately prepared for the changes that are necessary. But you'll always be at risk of regaining weight, even years later. To help reach your weight-loss goal and prevent weight regain, it's crucial to make lifestyle changes along with having gastric bypass surgery. ...Read more

If I have an ulcer, will i need lap band revision surgery? I'm nervous about having lap band revision surgery on my stomach. Is this kind of surgery usually successful? Is it any riskier than my original surgery? .

If I have an ulcer, will i need lap band revision surgery? I'm nervous about having lap band revision surgery on my stomach. Is this kind of surgery usually successful? Is it any riskier than my original surgery? 

.

Although : Although the situation you describe is unclear, it seems that you may have had a lap band and now found to have an ulcer near the area of the band and that you have been suggested to have this revised. If indeed this is the case, you should consider whether you have taken medications that may have increased the risk for stomach ulceration, such as the use of Aspirin or steroids. It that is not the case and the ulcer is near the vicinity of the lap band, then one should consider whether this is a lap band erosion, which can occur if the reservoir is overfilled, incorrectly placed, or other events, such as prolonged vomiting may have preceded this. As this occurs in about 3-5% of cases, it is not common, but the treatment will require removal of the lap band. In this case, another lap band is not usually recommended, but rather consideration to conversion to another bariatric procedure, such as sleeve gastrectomy, after the ulcer is healed. ...Read more

What does "severe'" gas-bloat after nissen fundoplication mean/look like? What causes gas-bloat after this surgery?

Can't burp: An effective nissen fundoplication provides a barrier to gastroesophageal reflux, but also a barrier to vomiting and burping since the lower esophageal sphincter no longer relaxes to let air (or other stomach contents) escape upward from your stomach. The air then accumulates in the stomach, resulting in gas and bloating until it can be evacuated into the small bowel. ...Read more
