  1. Hubby is highly highly sensitive to gluten and has been on a gluten free diet for at least the past 5 years. He has tried everything for weight loss and nothing has worked, our doctor is having us look at gastric bypass. Our insurance covers it and we are both already at the max out-of-pocket for the year, so getting the surgery is definitely within our grasp.   We went to the informational seminar at the hospital last night and hubby got a bit scared because he didn't realize the surgery bypasses part of the small intestine. He is very worried that he wouldn't be able to have the surgery or that it will cause him harm after, celiac wise.   Is there anyone that has had the bypass surgery, but AFTER BEING DIAGNOSED with celiac? I don't need to hear from people that were diagnosed with celiac after the surgery.   He thought of the question after we left, so we were unable to bring up our concern to the doctor. We are in the process of trying to get the appointment with the surgeon and can find out what we need then, but the process is a bit slow (they want to do all the requirements with the insurance and stuff before they will have you come in for the appt, arg.), so we were wondering if anyone here had some experience?   If you fall into this category, was the surgery itself successful? Did you have issues that flared up the celiac/symptons, even if you avoided gluten?   Thanks!!!
