Howdy! I had G.B. Jan 9th 2012 & as I write this I have lost close to 80lbs...BUT, am suffering some serious complications. Surgically I am OK, but have battled serious NAUSEA/VOMITTING 24/7 since my surgery. My Surgeon says, it's common. Should only last baout 90days...Was wondering if you have experienced any of these sorta symptoms?? Thank You & God Bless! ~{:O)

If your vomiting is due to getting things stuck, that's normal and just make sure you chew well. If it seems to be random, I'd recommend getting a second opinion from another Dr. that specializes in WLS. Also since you are new to all of this, I wanted to share a couple of great resources. http://www.bariatrictv.com and http://www.wlsfa.org . . . I am very active in both and love the support I get. Everyone at Bariatric TV are super great about answering questions and you will get much more response than on here.

Best of luck!!

I had a gastric by pass in 2001 and it was very sucessful. i do have problems with gaining about 20 lbs but i will always lose it. when i had surgery i was 400 lbs and lost down to 215 and that is where my weight has stayed. i was not lucky enough for my weight to go below 200 lbs. it has been 11 years for me and yes there is people that has kept the weight off after having a gastric by pass and i am one of them.
