Regaining weight after the surgery

Somebody once told me that people who have gastric sleeve tend to regain some of their weight back around the second year. For those of you who have passed the second year mark, is this true? I’m just wondering as I probably need to double the effort to avoid that moment, but I don’t want to jump to conclusions either.

I’m only six months out so I don’t have the experience here, but I guess it makes sense that you’d inevitably gain some of it back at that time since you’ll finally be off the special diet and will be incorporating more whole foods into your meals. Maybe there’s a learning curve for some.

I read some comments online, and one mentioned that our sleeve size increased over time. In addition to having more types of food and cheat days, those are probably the reasons why. It may be a learning curve for some though I’m not sure it still happens so long after the surgery.

I would assume that those people who gained weight a few years after the surgery have not stayed with the “supposed” diet that we should eat. In my own opinion, the gastric sleeve is only a means to help us get healthier and not a permanent solution for us to be fit.
