How much weight can I expect to lose after surgery?
Everyone is different dependent on many factors such as how much weight you need to lose, did you lose substantial weight before surgery, amount of activity, following your plan, you will lose the most in first year to year and half I started at 394 in Jan this year was 342 day of surgery last week but after surgery weighed more so full of fluids from hospital this morning 6 days later weight is starting to fall off but I'm on clear fluids for first week basically "0" calories I expect to lose 20 pounds a month for first 3 months but maybe I won't hit that but if it's 15 I won't be disappointed as long as I'm progressing.

This will give you a rough idea. Typical guesstimate is 60 - 65%. I had surgery 10 months ago and I have lost 140 pounds. I am on track to be in the upper 90's for percentage wise. Everybody is different though.
As much as you work to lose. The surgery isn't magic - so you'll lose weight as long as you stick to your plan, maintain good habits, and maintain a caloric deficit.
