Gastric Bypass Surgery Forums


The Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) is restrictive and malabsorptive. You get a smaller stomach pouch, which attaches lower down your small intestine. In these forums, talk about dumping syndrome, nutrient deficiencies, weight loss, the bypass diet and complications. Forums are for pre-WLS patients and those already have the RYGB.

      Hello,
      I was preparing for the gastric sleeve when my pre-op EGD scope showed I have Barrett's esophagus, with dysplasia (pre-cancerous).  My WLS surgeon said I need to treat the Barrett's first and then strongly suggested I have the Gastric Bypass instead of the sleeve because of several reasons -- GERD is usually eliminated with bypass and worse with sleeve (acid is the cause of the Barrett's), and the stomach is left if needed for esophageal cancer surgery (worst case scenario, obviously). 
      My first priority is getting the Barrett's treated.  Then, in four to six weeks, having the WLS surgery, which is recommended to also treat Barrett's (from an obesity perspective).
      So, I'd like to hear if there are other WLS patients like me with Barrett's and what happened.  I'm anxious for info!
      I'm a bit in shock since I got the news today during my pre-op appointment with surgeon.  But I consider it a blessing because if I hadn't gotten the scope, I could have had a much worse diagnosis later.
      My May 30 surgery is now postponed, obviously.
