I received Roux en Y gastric bypass surgery and did not lose weight. My doctor ordered an upper GI and determined that my anastomosis was too large and the food was traveling through my body as if I had never had the surgery.
Subsequently, I received gastric bypass revision surgery. I am now four months out and have lost no weight.
My surgeon has said he will consider an additional revision after I am 6 months out. I am on Atkins again to minimize any more weight gain.
I am so disappointed and willing to have the additional surgery. I have co-morbidities and want to alleviate some of the problems associated with them.
