Hi I'd like to introduce myself I'm cyndeelouwho from Nebraska. I had bypass surgery during 1980 in the initial start up stage and not much was known about it. I was 220 or 230 and 5'1. In a years time I lost 120 lbs and I felt great. But not at first it wasn't fun at all. I really didn't know what to do but, I know most of the time I was sick and puking not to mention constipated. I'd say about three or four months out I started to understand what was happening to my body. I kept the weight off maintaining 115 weight. But after my marriage failed and then made bad choices in my life I gained it all back. Now I'm 69 years old and have a BMI of 36. If I don't do anything now my quality of life will only be bad. When I look at a mirror I see a hippo or a Rhino. I have to do something now. Has anyone out there heard of a person who has had a bypass surgery and their stomach stretched out and is thinking about having another, do they even do that? I'm sorry but I can't talk to anyone else please let me know what you think.

Yes i have seen it here people have had additional surgeries or switched methods like Bypass to sleeve. I would call a Surgeon and go see one. You got this you have done it before so now you just focus and get healthy again
