I am unable to eat after having gastric by-pass on 9/29/06. When I try to eat it comes back up & I want to vomit. I have lost way too much weight & am 58 y/o. I now have insomnia & I am Bi-Polar. I am also unable to absorb anything I put into my mouth & all tests are negative. I see a psychiatrist & a therapist. Don't know what to do. Help in any way!

It is a reaction from the surgery. The gastic bypass is so dangerous and most people who get it have adverse reactions like not being able to eat and developing other disorders from it. My biggest suggestion is to convert to a high in nutrient liquid diet. If you can't get solids down, that is the only way to get back up to a healthy weight and get your vitamin levels back to normal.

Please Help Me
I am a 32yo woman who is unable to eat anything after a gastric bypass in May 2010. I have had 2 revisions, and still no food staying down. I can eat broth every few days, but nothing else. My sergeon is at a loss, and says there is nothing phsically wrong. Does anyone have any suggestions? I cannot stomach those drinks so I survive on OJ and Perkicetts for the severe pain. I have had an ulcer, and now Gall stones. I am slowly dying of starvation, with no hope in sight. I hope someone may hold the answer I need.
