The patient, a 45-year-old woman, initially underwent Roux-en-Y gastric bypass for morbid obesity. Three years later, it was complicated by a gastrojejunostomy ulcer with perforation requiring local repair. Additional complications with ischemic bowel and subsequent surgical revisions resulted in complete gastric outlet obstruction. A venting gastrostomy tube was placed in the gastric pouch, and a feeding gastrostomy tube was surgically placed in the gastric remnant. After some time, the patient strongly expressed her desire to eat orally.
