Hi there,

I’ve not had experience of this but I believe it’s possible to stretch your pouch. You don’t say what type of surgery you had but with a bypass, I understand that if you eat too much, everything stretches so you don’t feel the restriction and so you eat more, a viscous cycle I suppose.

The only advice I can give is to try to get back on track, remember how you ate and the tactics you used in the first year and do that again. I believe you can do a ‘pouch test ‘ basically put yourself back on the milk diet for a week to try to shrink your pouch down.

The other thing is to look at why you are eating more or making poor choices with your food, are you well otherwise? Are you suffering a stress or anxiety that is leading you to overeat? You wonder whether to speak to the hospital and I always think it’s a good idea to speak to professionals. Also, can you get to one of the support groups?

I hope some of this is useful. Good luck x
