Hi. My name is Dan and I lost my fiance' 6 months ago to complications resulting from gastric bypass surgery. In short, before I met her, she was obese and chose the aforementioned procedure as a solution to her problem. She lost an enormous amount of weight, and all seemed well. During the summer of 2009, her condition degraded greatly. Her small bowel died, and the surgeon removed all but 30 milimeters of her small intestion. For 2-1/2 years, I provided her with 4 litres of hydration, and TPN (Total Parential Nutrition) for nutrients, administered over a 24 hour period per day. She succumbed to massive organ failure on November 23, 2011.
Be VERY careful before comitting to gastric-bypass surgery. It has risks. I can attest to that.
