just a heads up for everyone about stones. I had my gallbladder out 5 years ago, had my GBS over two years ago. I was doing great loosing weight ( 218 pounds gone) and wham out of the blue I developed stones that went to my liver and shut it down. normally this would be an easy surgery except for people who have had the bypass it is very risky to remove the stones. The doctor had to go into the "old stomach" section and snake through to the liver to remove the stones. Something not most surgeons have attempted. thankfully I had a top notch doc who took the time to figure out how to do it. Please people if you have any pain that seems out of normal please go see the doctor and make sure they understand gastric bypass and how to treat us. I had to be transfered 80+ miles to a level 5 trama center/hospital thankfully! My liver is functioning and strangely my bypass feels like new.LOL I cant explain it but when I eat now it doesnt take as much food to fill me, like when I first had the surgery done. LOL But please if you have any pain or something doesnt feel right call your doctor and get help...I waited too long and was treated in the ER three diffrent days until they figured it out!
