Gastric Bypass

Well I thought I was the only one - but after reading all these posts I think the problem is true for all of us that have had the gastric bypass surgery. I had my bypass over 10 years ago and at first lost about 75 pounds - I have gained it all back and there seems to be no solution. I have always had to eat around 500 calories a day to not gain weight and go down to around 200 or 300 calories a day to lose small amounts of weight. That was true before and after the surgery. I am trying again to lose the extra weight and was in the hospital for other reasons (got hit by a car) and gained alot of weight because of the steroids they put me on - which I stopped taking. I went from 184 to 224 due to the steroid intake - which makes you eat all day long. Even though I was eating low calorie food the weight still went up drastically. The gastric bypass was a failure - since it did not solve the issues which I have - ie not being ablt to eat more than 300 calories a day.
