But do you know how many have had issues?

I was googling articles on this last night because I was curious - we just don't hear much about them. One said about 3% of sleeve patients and 5% of bypass patients - so yes - it's close to double for bypass. But still, a vast majority of people don't have issues. Your surgeon would see them since she works with WLS patients all the time, though.

A vast majority of those having complications with GB as compared to the sleeve had to do with health and weight beforehand. GB is predominantly recommended for the morbidly obese as it is far more likely for them to have lasting success. However, since they are morbidly obese and many have multiple comorbidity’s, their risk of complication is higher.
