I am looking for anyone who has had the gastric bypass 5 or more years ago. I am trying to see if anyone has had any major health problems since it? Anyone that I can talk to would be great. I am not the one who had the surgery but I am related and am trying to help her out. Thank you in advance

I work as a medical transcriptionist and I have done some medical reports of people who are about 3-5 years postop and have serious problems, the last one that I did was of a woman, 35, who had life threatening pancreatitis.  I worry about that happening but I went into this knowing there was as risk of complications.  I weighed the risks of not having it, staying the weight I was with the strong family history of heart disease, cancer, etc and decided that the possible risks postop were worth going forward with the surgery.
