What Weight Gain After Gastric Bypass Surgery Means

Posted by Jason Radecke on Wed, Jan 07, 2015

Patients who decide to undergo gastric bypass surgery typically only gain about 8 to 10 percent of their weight back. The average weight patients lose after gastric bypass surgery is about 70 percent. This means that a patient who is 100 pounds overweight will, on average, lose about 70 pounds. Many patients even see results much higher than this. However, as many as 80 percent of patients do eventually gain back a little weight after hitting their lowest point. Unfortunately, the more time that passes after your gastric bypass surgery, the more likely you are to gain some weight back. Many patients want to know exactly what weight gain after gastric bypass means for them and their bodies. The answer isn’t that simple. It can mean many things depending on your individual situation. The only real way to tell is to see your surgeon or doctor and get assessed by them. 

Your options depend on exactly how much weight you’ve actually gained back after your gastric bypass surgery. Your doctor will ask you the following questions when you see him or her about your recent weight gain, so keep them in mind before you go in for your appointment.

  • How much weight did you lose before the weight regain started?
  • How long after your surgery did you notice weight regain?
  • What diet, exercise, or other factors may have caused your weight regain?
  • What did you do to stop or reverse it, if anything?

Do You Fit the Gastric Bypass Requirements?

Posted by Jason Radecke on Sun, Dec 21, 2014

Are you ready to take those first steps toward a healthier and happier life? The first thing you need to do is research. Research the best possible option for you and your body, what you can afford and if you qualify for the surgery you’re considering.

Gastric bypass surgery is the most common type of weight loss surgery. In the procedure, a surgeon uses a stapling device to create a small stomach pouch. The remainder of the stomach isn’t removed, but it’s completely separated from the pouch. As you eat food, it bypasses the portion of the stomach that was separated from the pouch. This limits how much food you can eat and how many nutrients you can absorb, leading to significant weight loss. While gastric bypass surgery is a major life-changing tool that people can use to make a transformation to their lifestyle, bariatric surgery isn’t for everyone. Gastric bypass requirements take into account multiple considerations.
