  1. Hi Res Ipsa, thanks for the suggestions. I just had a f/u with the surgeon who took over my care. He is concerned that without taking daily Protonix med, I experience continued acid reflux after all these years.

I am 10 years out( gastric bypass 7/2009) and while I lost over 60lbs the first 2 months post op, once I was able to eat more foods, I went right back to my old ways.

  4. Hi everyone! I am brand new to this site, so glad I found it! I am 10 years post op gastric bypass RNY, a so-called WLS veteran. I have had a tough journey and while I haven't regained a lot of weight, I haven't lost any either. I live in tiny CT, and have found it hard to connect with other post gastric bypass patients.
