Mental Health and Gastric Bypass

I know a lady who currently weighs 350 pounds, 5'3".

Her medical history before the surgery 4.5 years ago was 210 lbs and a history of migraines.

After the surgery she never did the follow ups, became pregnant and continued supplements up until about a month before the child's birth via section.

She has never controlled her eating habits before or after surgery and since her child's birth has quit supplements, has been lactating for about 2.5 years after she quit breast feeding and currently weighs 350lbs.

Given that she has to have some mental health issues, what hormonal and mental health issues may have resulted from damage and neglect to her body.

Oh, I almost forgot she prefers a high starch diet and participates in minimal physical activity.

Can the surgery be reversed at all if complications start to compound?
