Gosh. Sorry to hear about what you've been through. I am 13 years post op doing well now... but the malnutrition nearly killed me... two years in bed, clinical depression... no energy. Bypass can be hard. We read all about it when we decided to sign on, we didn't understand any of the side effects could ACTUALLY affect us, because we wanted it so badly and were willing to take the risks. There was actually a time I would have fought to save someone from this surgery... but now I'm healthy again, VERY! And would recommend it to others... just be sure your will is strong enough to fight through whatever may come you way. By the way "good for You... hang in there, this too shall pass."
