Hi @leeas2007, welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. Can you tell me a bit more about your question so that I can connect you with others like you. Are you considering Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery for weight loss? Or have you already had surgery?

Yes I had roux n y 5-1-14 and had a upper gi done a couple years ago and I swear my pouch was stretched from it and have fought with my weight since
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?
