Hi, recently had RNY surgery (Feb 2020), and have felt that I have little to no restriction. Would a CT scan show if the stomach is smaller as in bypassed???

what kinds of food do you eat? If you are eating slider food you won't have any restriction but if you are eating dense protein you should.
a cat scan would show if you have a bypAss

What are you eating? Are they slider foods? At 18 years out I can't eat over 3-4 ounce DENSE food, like chicken or beef...but can eat a hog trough of popcorn (don't ask me WHY I know this)

Even "healthy" foods like cottage cheese, yogurt, etc are slider foods, and you can consume a boat load of them, without really trying

The easiest (and WAY cheaper than a CT scan!) would be to eat some dense protein - without drinking, with it, of course

I'm the same way when it comes to popcorn or other slider foods but with dense protein it's about 3 ounces and then my nose starts running to tell me that's it. I would try the dense protein test first to see if you feel the restriction and if not then further testing may be necessary.
