Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery Forum


Like the full gastric bypass, the mini gastric bypass surgery is restrictive from a smaller stomach pouch and malabsorptive from bypassing the first part of the small intestine. The difference is in the way the stomach pouch attaches to the small intestine. Use these forums to discuss the procedure, diet, risks, and weight loss.

      Lololol...sad but true.. make sure you have probiotics in your diet daily. It helps your b m not have the horrible odor since we do not have the duodenum. I don't understand why they take that part out but they shouldn't leave it. Everything you eat and you can smell. But when you get back to normal eating it is off the chain.

        I’m 67 and had surgery in September.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

        I have threw up clear mucus every time I ate something that didn’t sit well with my stomach. I’ve been trying to get too ahead of myself though I had surgery September 22 I noticed that when I eat smaller slower bites I don’t throw up as much
