Dear Sue
The first thing you need to do is to consult the doctor who did this op for you to find out if the clips have got loose or what is going on. I am sure that the op can be repeated seeing that nowadays it is possible to reverse the op at the patient's request. If you can't face another op then do think of using a low-fat, high-fibre diet and exercise instead, but first get that medical opinion.
