In brief: Yes

Regaining weight frequently happens.
It used to be thought that it had to do with enlargement of the gastric pouch, but more recent studies suggest that it is related to a gradual widening of the gastrojejunal anastomosis (the joining between the stomach pouch and small intestine that is created).
