Can you not lose weight after gastric bypass?
It would be pretty hard not to lose weight after gastric bypass surgery. Most patients will lose between 70 - 80% of their excess weight in the in the first year after gastric bypass surgery. It is important to remember that bariatric surgery is a tool and not a cure for obesity and you need to work with it to get the best results.
