I am 17 yrs. out from my gastric bypass surgery. I started at 306 lbs (139 kgs) and got down to 175 lbs (79 kgs). I have been gaining weight over the past year and have gained 20 lbs (9 kgs) back.
I had a laparoscopic procedure to have my pouch checked 6 months ago and was told the pouch is fine but the outlet has stretched and there was nothing that could be done about it. I am hungry all the time so assume that is why I am gaining back.
Is there a procedure for this?
I had my surgery done at the Bariatric Treatment Center in Michigan and any time I have called them for help they tell me to go to my family doctor. They have been no help at all since I had my surgery.
I did go to a different bariatric doctor. for the laparoscopic procedure who told me there was nothing to be done for the stretched outlet but he quit the practice soon after I saw him.
Is there anything that can be done for my problem? I am extremely afraid of gaining all my weight back. The 20 lbs is bad enough.
