    The majority if us do get dumping syndrome and after a few years, many learn how to push the limits so they can go right back to eating the sweets. I have seen too many people from my support group regain because they eat around the surgery.

    My surgery was 8 years ago and even back then they gave me a pregnancy test the morning of surgery. My surgeon also had me sign a statement of the risk which included what would happen if I got pregnany within a year of surgery.

    Everytime I've been into an NHS hospital I've had to do a piss test to ensure I wasn't

    Due to the criteria of a BMI of over 40 I suspect that her surgery was carried out at a private hosital or she had other health concerns (type 2 diabetes, etc) criteria here:- Obesity - Surgery - NHS Choices
