    I have been doing my research as someone on here suggested in the days leading up to my bypass on Tuesday and came across this study. It has been mentioned on the forum that there is not much about anyone 5 years plus and I think this is encouraging.

    It is rather academic but not difficult to understand and I skipped large bits, figure 3 is the really important one – it shows that whilst the average person does regain some weight post the nadir, or lowest point after about 2 years, the average patient still has permanent huge weight loss between 10-15 years after their operations which can only be good news.

    Here is the link:

    Sorry guys when I am worried I go into research over-drive!

    It would be, see if you can find something. I imagine the techniques may have altered (fewer open procedures) but the average success rate over a long period is comforting to know.

    thanks for this info
    it was interesting to read that the super morbid obese catogory(which is what i fall into)
    has at 36.7% failure rate post 10 years
    but on the bright side I guess that also means it has a success rate of 63.4%
    I INTEND TO BE ONE OF THE 63.4%
    if i keep on trying lol xxx
