In brief: No

Pyloric stenosis as a child (presumably corrected at that time) does not have any relationship to one's adult weight.
Pyloric stenosis is unusual tightness at the outlet end of the stomach, blocking the stomach contents from emptying into the intestine, so babies with the condition have forceful vomiting.

Once pyloric stenosis is corrected the infant will be normal with long term sequelae being extremely rare.
