I had gastric bypass 15 years ago. I lost 120 lbs. and have kept it off. There have been no side effects over the years until recently. I have now developed severe anemia. I am being treated for it and have been told that the type of surgery I had has a problem with this after some years. They no longer do this type of gastric bypass and now make sure that the part of the stomach that has been bypassed is not the part that absorbs the iron from the food and supplements. E-mail me for more info.
