I too lost weight since getting my GB removed…it will be 2 years this march. I have the pains on my right side that some have described and loose stool…sometimes Reah depending on how much fat the food I am eating contains. However, unlike a lot of people on this blog I have experienced weight loss not gain. I went from 230 to 160 since having it out and have literally not seen the inside of a gym the entire time. I don’t really watch what I eat either….I don’t purge but have at least one peice of candy everyday and some kind of dessert pretty much every night….I and all my friends and family contribute it to my GB being gone….???? I guess it affects everyone differently
