In patients with morbid obesity, management with bariatric surgery is the gold standard for sustained weight loss. As obesity, and in turn, bariatric procedures, become more prevalent, so too does the need for revisional bariatric surgery. We present a case of a patient s/p RYGB who developed worsening nausea, dysphagia, and PO intolerance resulting in weight loss, malnutrition, and TPN dependence. We also highlight the fact that patients have often had prior intrabdominal procedures which may complicate the surgical approach. In conclusion, the bariatric surgeon should familiarize his/herself with the potential challenges of revisional bariatric surgery.
