Stomach removal

My daughter went for a surgical procedure for the removal of a secondary stomach!! and undergo a by-pass and all was OK until the Dr. decided to go again and remove the stomach completely.
Is removing the stomach medically OK? would it affect her physically? she will be getting married soon, would there be any complications or could she get pregnant safely? what are the consequences of removing the stomach?
Thank you for your help
