What is a gastric bypass?
Gastric bypass aims to lose weight,
especially in people who are very overweight, or who are
overweight with other serious diseases stemming from obesity.
During this surgery, the stomach is reduced in size, thus reducing the amount of food it can
absorb, and a part of the intestine is bypassed, causing partial absorption of food.
Serious and immediate complications occur in about 5% of people who undergo the operation. It is important to monitor these patients regularly for nutritional deficiencies.
Who can be a perfect candidate for gastric bypass ?
To undergo the procedure, it is important
to have some conditions for gastric bypass surgery
If your BMI is 40 or more (obese).
If your BMI is 35 to 39.9 (obese), and you also have a serious weight-related health problem; such as type 2 diabetes, arterial hypertension, or severe sleep apnea.
In some cases, you may be eligible for certain types of weight-loss surgery if your BMI is between 30 and 34 and you have serious weight-related health problems.
But gastric bypass surgery isn't appropriate for everyone who is obese.
You may need to meet certain medical guidelines to be eligible for weight loss surgery; you will likely undergo a comprehensive screening process to see if you qualify.
You should also be willing to make lasting changes to lead a healthier lifestyle. You may be required to participate in long-term follow-up plans that includes monitoring your diet, lifestyle, behavior and medical conditions.
Why is gastric bypass done ?
Gastric bypass is used to help you lose excess weight and reduce the risk of potentially life-threatening weight-related health problems, including :
- gastroesophageal reflux disease.
- heart disease.
- high cholesterol.
- Obstructive sleep apnea.
- Type 2 diabetes.
- brain stroke.
Gastric bypass is usually done after the patient has tried other methods like changing diet or exercise or other procedures to lose weight and failed to achieve their goal.
How to prepare for gastric bypass?
In the weeks before surgery, you may be asked to start a
program of physical activity and to
completely quit using tobacco products.
Just before the surgical procedure, there may be some restrictions on eating and drinking and the medications you can take.
It would be a good idea to start planning in advance for the postoperative recovery phase, for example, make arrangements to get help at home if you think you will need help.
You should have someone ready to drive you home after the procedure because you won't be able to.
Why is gastric bypass done ?
What can you expect during the gastric bypass procedure ?
Gastric bypass surgery is performed
at the clinic.
Depending on how well you recover, your hospital stay is usually one to two days, but it may last longer.
You will be under general anesthesia before starting the surgery. Anesthesia is a medicine that helps you sleep and rest during surgery.
The specifics of a gastric bypass will depend on your personal situation and your doctor's practices.
Some surgeries are done through large traditional incisions (openings) in the abdomen, but most are done laparoscopically, which involves inserting instruments through multiple small incisions in the abdomen.
After making the incisions via the open method or the endoscopic technique, the surgeon cuts straight through the upper part of the stomach and completely blocks it from the rest of the stomach. The pocket is about the size of a walnut and can hold just 28 grams of food.
Your stomach can hold, under normal circumstances, about 3 pints of food.
Then the surgeon cuts out the small intestine and stitches part of it directly into the pouch, the food then goes to this small pouch of the stomach, and then goes directly to the small intestine stitched into it.
Food bypasses most of the stomach and the first part of the small intestine, and enters directly into the middle part of the small intestine.
The surgery usually takes a few hours. After surgery, you're awakened in a recovery room, where medical staff monitors you to avoid any complications.
What happens after gastric bypass ?
After gastric bypass surgery, you can
drink liquids, but no solid food as your stomach and intestines are healing.
You will then follow a special diet that slowly changes from liquids to pureed foods, after that, you can eat light foods, and then switch to more solid foods when your body can tolerate them.
Your doctor will recommend that you take a multivitamin and mineral supplement after surgery, including a multivitamin with iron, calcium and vitamin B-12.
You will also undergo frequent medical examinations to monitor your health in the first few months after gastric bypass surgery, you may need a lab test, a blood test and multiple tests.
You may experience changes in your body's response to rapid weight loss in the first three to six months after gastric bypass like body aches feeling tired, as if you had the flu, feeling cold and mood changes.
These are normal to have and will disappear with time.
There will be a lot of restrictions on your diet, and you may have to change your whole lifestyle, this is why before having the procedure you will need to really consider these aspects and be ready to make the necessary changes.
What is the best diet to have after gastric bypass ?
After undergoing the operation, the most important thing
you will need to change and watch over is your diet; you will want to eat slowly and lower
the amount of food that you eat normally, this will lower the risks of complications and
make the results visible much faster.
