Most people that die from these types of surgeries die because they have a leak in their digestive system, which is allowing very potent acid to get out into their bodies and cause damage. The real catch here is that a lot of times hospitals don't have a CAT scan machine big enough for the obese patient and they're the only way to be sure there is a leak. One article I read about this said that weight loss surgeries may one day go the way of the lobotomy.
