    Thank you! Most of my weight that I regained sits in my lower abdomen, which after a lot of research, seems to be hormone related. I really think this articles describes what happened to me! At my first visit with a traditional dietitian in 2016, I told her my feelings of satiety are totally blunted and that I can only guess when I’m full. Such a weird phenomenon and I really just assumed it was normal after gastric bypass. She told me I eat more fiber...I did without success.

    Aussie bear, that is really good to hear about revisions! Congrats on your weight loss! I stalled out and could not lose more than 10lbs since 2014. Granted I was pregnant in 2015-2016, but after having my daughter I had rapid weight gain of 13lbs after losing all of my pregnancy weight (26 lbs).It’s been a wild ride advocating for myself and finally getting some answers. Im thankful for healthcare professionals who listen to their patients.

    Thank you! Not a ton of information about gastrogastric fistulas, I’m realizing! Nervous but excited to have another shot at this, if that makes sense.

    Hi all! I’m chantel and I live in northeast pa! I’m 30, married and am a mommy to a wild two year old girl! I had my rny gastric bypass in May of 2011. Highest weight was 253, lowest weight 159 and my current weight is 218. While I haven’t been 100% perfect post op, I haven’t been out of control. I spent the last 2 years trying to get back to onderland without success. My surgeon moved away so I finally thought to go to a different bariatric clinic in the area. Had an upper gi ultrasound done to rule out a fistula. However I do have a fistula and will be meeting with a gi surgeon to discuss my options. I can post this on the revision board if I don’t get many answers. I’m nervous! I don’t know what to expect and am obsessing over this whole problem! Why does a fistula cause weight gain? I have been eating 1300 calories a day and can barely lose 5 lbs. it really is crazy! Anyone here have this issue? How were You after the revision? Thanks so much!
