In brief: 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.

In brief: When it doesnt work

Once you can eat any amount of food and have stopped losing or are gaining weight, you may be a candidate for a revision.
Talk with your surgeon about a revision. Having done the first bypass, he will know better than anyone what to use as parameters for a revision.
