Hello 1day and welcome to the chronic pain forum. Do you usually post elsewhere at HW? Anyway just wanted to pop in here and say Hi and to tell you with the holiday weekend you may be slow in getting the right responses to your question. I am not real up on the stomach surgeries and gastric bypasses other then I do know they alter absorption.
I am assuming by the amount of anatomy and physiology I have that what you are describing would also alter in some ways since many things are absorbed and broken down in different parts of the stomach and the digestive process. The actual breaking down process of anything we intake actually starts as we chew and add saliva and as it moves into the esophagus other things take place and once it actually gets into the stomach many things start happening and at different points along the way as it moves thru and down into the intestines. Well a little anatomy of digestion but you see where I am going with this right?
I would think that if any part or step of that digestion process should change or be omitted would cause some things to absorb differently including any meds that are designed to break down in that step.
This may not help but its the best I got!! Lol Others will be along that are certainly more familiar with this then me so hang in and keep checking back here or feel free to stay we would love to have you.
