The thing with the gastric bypass surgery is alot of the dr's who do it require the patients to try and lose weight and get down to around 300 lbs before they will attempt the surgery. Surgery at a weight of over 300lbs is risky.
I have an online friend who had the surgery almost 2 years ago(not long after the woman in this article died). She was told to not get pg until 1 year after she'd had the surgery. The reason for it was due to the low caloric diets they are on. They were taking precautions but she still ended up pregnant 3 months after the surgery. She was still on the restricted caloric diet and was high risk becasue of having the surgery. She was monitored very carefully, so was the baby. She had him last Dec perfectly healthy.
What happened with the lady in this article is a risk of many surgeries and not just the gastric bypass. There is a lady in town who lost both her hands and her feet when her youngest was 4months old. The old obgyn who was here did her tube tie and nicked her bowel. It caused an infection and by the time she caught it she was in a coma and they had to amputate. She eventually woke up but I don't know how she cared for her children(older one was 2).
