  • Many, many, many people have the bypass and lose weight only to gain it back again. They never really dealt with the reasons that they gained the weight in the first place so they go right back to the bad eating habits they had before. You CAN stretch out the little stomach pouch and end up eating just like before. I'd do lots of research before I made a drastic decision like that one.

  • My sister's mom is gaining her weight back. You really have to research this to no end. It seems like a good fix but it's not a cure all.
