Unhappy Gastric Bypass Surgery Not Working!!!!

I had gastric bypass surgery in March of this year. For three weeks afterward, I lost weight....up to a total of about thirty pounds and then the weight loss stopped!
I am still following the rules they gave me for the bypass.
I am not doing anything to defeat my surgery.
It appeared to stop working after the drain was removed.
Has anyone else experienced bypass surgery that stopped working?
I feel terribly alone, depressed...desperately disappointed.
I feel like I have ruined whatever health I had...because I feel soooo bad physically...and emotionally, I am a wreck.
If there is anyone out there with experience with this, I would very much appreciate hearing from you.

Thank you.

Re: Gastric Bypass Surgery Not Working!!!!

I'm sorry you're having all these difficulties.

In what ways are you feeling bad physically? Are they new since the surgery? What does your surgeon have to say about all this?

I have no energy...not sure if that is the surgery or the depression that has set in. I have a general sense of anxiety that is new since the surgery. The inside of my mouth tastes like the bottom of a birdcage all the time. I wake up in the night with dreadful thirst that doesn't seem to get quenched. I feel like I am just slowly fading away...like I won't ever be the same person I was. I know these probably don't seem specific.
My surgeon has little to say. Mostly a wait and see kind of thing. My specific questions are not seeming to be answered.

I haven't had my surgery yet, but from what the nutritionist tells me, if you aren't getting enough protein you will stop losing weight
