Very interesting ! So the most realistic view based on this study is now that patients can hope to successfully maintain on average ~75% of maximum weight lost...

And saw another study which states 20-30% of all RnY Bypassers have significant weight regain, want to go back and re-scan, want to see what they attribute it to. Is it faulty eating, lack of commitment or something more occult? Scarey-Beary, I came into this hoping to lose weight and then keep it off!👈😭👉

WLS is still your best chance to get rid of the weight and keep the weight off. However, in the end WLS is like any other medical/surgical therapy: there is no 100% success rate.
