In brief: Probably not

You should see your bariatric surgeon to be evaluated for possible enlargement of you gastrojejunal anastamosis and loss of early satiety vs.
Fistula formation from the stomach. Typically, patients will gain some of the weight back as the stomach enlarges over time and you are able to eat through your bypass. I would recommend speaking to a nutritionist as well. Revision surgery is difficult.
