I had a RNY in 2016. My weight went from 325 to 176. Slowly moved to 190 so I believe it stretched but Numerous adhesions and surgeries kept bringing it down. A lot of my friends had gastric sleeve. I’m told that the stomach doubles in size first year so unless you are a fitness geek , weight comes slowly back too. Still better to be thin

hi @leeas2007 Have you talked to your medical provider about the option for a TORE procedure?
