Ur not digesting fat: Following GB surgery, you no longer have bile to break down fats in your diet.

That's why smokers have greater risk for heart attack, stroke & erectile dysfunction. So again, I guess you're lucky. I wouldn't push my luck thought. I recommend quitti ...Read more

Blood -- at least 7 days. Hair -- much longer (months). ...Read more
