I'm sorry, I don't understand what you are asking about
. Maybe gastric bypass surgery?
We did have a Lupus member who passed away shortly after having some sort of weight-loss surgery, I don't know which type. While we suspected the surgery was a contributing factor, I believe the ladies husband had an autopsy performed but never posted the final results. The woman had a number of issues beyond Lupus, but obviously was not helped by the surgery.
Butterflake also had a weight-loss surgery, after which she experienced multiple complications. She should be along soon to discuss them herself. Her general health was much better going into the surgery than the health of the woman who passed away.
Some people have had better results, but I would heavily caution against ANY kind of elective surgery if you have an active auto-immune disease. These diseases are not well-understood, and basically we have no idea what might trigger them into a flare.
Hope that helps,
