So I first had a banded gastroplasty in 2001. I had to have a revision into a gastric bypass in 2012 because of scar tissue issues. I had lost 197 pounds between the two surgeries. I’m ashamed to admit that I’ve gained 150 pounds of that back. I’m not supposed to be able to eat sugar or high fatty foods due to dumping, but I can do both with no problems. I’m wondering if anybody else can eat anything they want after bypass? I’m so frustrated it sucks.

I know a girl that had it done 5 years ago and can eat anything she said. I am sorry that you are having such a hard time. Have you tried getting back to basics ?

I'm five years out. I can't tolerate really fatty meals (e.g., fried fish or fried chicken with an order of fries), but other than that, yes, I can eat anything (and I can definitely eat SOME fat - but a super fatty meal, no...I'd be vomiting afterward)
