Hello everyone,

I had mgb on October 6, 2016 and I have lost a significant amount of weight. I have had some complications and its been a rough year. My highest weight was 249 pounds and I am currently 123 pounds and my height is 5'7 1/2. Subsequently,I started out with a lower BMI than most people getting weight loss surgery.

Has anyone had to have surgery to make their intestines longer to ascertain better absorption ? I am getting the surgery in two weeks and wanted to see if anyone else has had this experience.

Hi, first let me say congratulations on your weight loss and sorry your having absorption issues. I have not had my surgery yet but was curious about something and maybe you can help me answer this question. I am 5’6 with my CW at 228 and figured my excess weight loss is 75lbs which should take me to 153. What should be you GW if you do not mind me asking! Thanks

Hello
I have not had the surgery to lengthen my intestines for better absorption. I am currently 132 pounds and my bariatric doctor wants me at 154 pounds.
