Intolerance to Certain Foods After Gastric Bypass

I read a blog where a post-WLS patient couldn't eat meat after her surgery. Is this common? Why does this happen and what are the chances it will happen to me?

Intolerance to Certain Foods After Gastric Bypass

It is very variable among patients about what they can or can not tolerate.  Dry grilled meats are sometimes difficult but moist stewed meats are usually OK.  It is all trial and error to see what agrees with you.  If having too much difficulty with meats you should have an endoscopy to see if you have a stricture which can be easily fixed with a balloon dilation performed endoscopically.
