"Although serotonin is manufactured in the brain, where it performs its primary functions, some 90% of our serotonin supply is found in the digestive tract and in blood platelets."

I am not a doctor, but I have had GI problems for years. I bought a book over five years ago, called "The Second Brain", by Michael D. Gershon, MD. He and a few other researchers have been studying the digestive system, and its enteric system, including Hirschsprungs Disease, and the role of serotonin in the digestive system.

My ex-wife had VSG (vertical sleeve gastronomy) for bariatric surgery. It worked wonders for her, she went from a size 22 to size 4 in 1 year. She did keep with the strict diet for it also and as far as I know she's still keeping the diet up. She can only eat 3oz of protein per meal, maybe 4 if she pushes it. She lost about 90+ pounds. From what she told me, there were lots of problems with the band, slipping, blockages and a good number of people have had them redone or switched to VSG. I all I can do is wish you luck with your surgery.

What kind of fluid do the inject?

Oh thank you, I read that post too fast. My husband has a specialist he is very happy with, he does not believe in surgery. My daughter goes to a special childrens hospital. We love her Dr. I will keep that in mind if something ( God forbid) changes

Have had this surgery and a couple of follow-ups due to the weight loss. It's not easy but it is worth it. I look and feel better and have no major health issues (unlike before- blood pressure, glucose, etc.) Your life will be difficult afterward. Learning what you can and can't eat, fatigue, and other issues will always be there but I still wouldn't change a thing. Consult a nutritionist or a dietician and be sure you cover all the bases with your doctors- both your surgeon and your regular family doctor. Help them work together to get you a pleasant recovery.

Thank you fund :) I was just wondering since my family has crohns and colitis issues . Seeing what different foods do to intestines, having special diets here, it just made me wonder what would happen without a stomach to help break everything down prior to going into the small intestine.

Wow talk about a run on sentence!

Hard rock , Can you have the band removed if you lose the weight you want, keep it off for a few years, then decide you no longer need the band? Is this a temporary procedure or permanent like a bypass?

BiF, also a good question. Two answers.

We understand that carrying undigested food into the large intestine (colon) changes bowel habits. Part of the prep for surgery is having a candid discussion about this topic with those who have gone before. There are good physiologic and biochemical explanations for what happens.

We understand less about long term effects of the bypass procedures. The older bypass operation--so-called J-I bypass (jejuno-ileal) --fell into deep disfavor owing to adverse effects on the liver. How the current versions will affect the body over half a century, who knows.

Being alive to deal with those problems beats the six-feet-under alternative.
