Can I have gastric bypass with celiac disease?

I was diagnosed with celiac in September and was wondering if I can still have the surgery with it.

Hello, thank you for your question!

Yes, you can absolutely still receive bariatric surgery. Even patients with Crohn's disease can receive gastric bypass. Good luck on your journey!
