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.

    • The 56 Bypass

      Well, I am still on schedule for a December 26th surgery, but no longer sleeve, but instead bypass. Here is a link to my latest YouTube video explaining why the change:

      Still stuck at a 50# weight-loss after three years. Starting to think the rest is never going to come off. I have decided to see a bariatric doctor, where I currently live, since I have moved away from the one that did my original surgery. Also starting to wonder what weight-loss percentage is considered a failure for this surgery. I don't want to be one of the unsuccessful stories, but I'm becoming very discouraged. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I lost the weight I did, but why won't the rest GO?!

      I have been very busy lately and my arm has finally stopped hurting, still no lifting, but my weight loss started up again so i am back to trying to find the right calorie number to hold in place. Its weird to think this way now and i am having a harder time increasing my calorie intake than i thought i would. It feels wrong to tell myself to eat more. So many years of yo-yo dieting messing with me right now. The Mental game just never ends.

        Wow, your arm hurt a long time. Glad it finally resolved. Hope you can get back to your weight training soon, I know you enjoyed that.

      2. allwet

        yea i had/have a pinched nerve at the top of the elbow and it is a very slow thing to recover from. The arm is weaker than before but feeling much better when i use it.

        every time i thought it was better i would start some form of training and it would go numb again all along the tricep. so its very light exercises and treadmill :(

      3. Orchids&Dragons

        Is there anything they can do to "un-pinch" it?

      4. allwet

        stretches and never putting pressure on back of arm, like you do if you use the bicep or tricep curl machines. Surgery is a last resort but doc says i need to try everything else first.

        The loss of so much fat around the nerve bundle allowed it to move around more.

      5. Orchids&Dragons

        That stinks. Sorry. One of those d@mn unintended consequences.
