Friability of anastomosis

Hi.  I was having trouble with an ulcer and had an EGD yesterday.  The surgeon took a pick of the ulcer and also noted on the discharge papers that I have friability of anastomosis.  I had gastric bypass June 2007 and I'm wondering what 'friability of anstomosis' means and what could cause it or it lead to.  Thanks for any help you can give.
