Could I reverse my gastric bypass?

In brief: Yes you can

The standard bypass does not remove any parts, so re-connecting the stomach pouch to the remnant stomach and removing the roux small bowel limb are possible.
Reversal is rarely done since most problems causing patients to consider reversal can be treated with other means. The procedure has higher risk than the first operation since the surgeon is working with altered anatomy.

In brief: Bypass can reverse

The doctor can reverse the gastric bypass laparoscopically.
The lower stomach never shrinks or loses function. The national incidence is only 1 in 1000. Usually only under rare circumstances.
