Gastric Bypass Explained
- Gastric bypass involves stapling the stomach to divide it into two parts.
- The smaller upper section of the divided stomach called “pouch” can hold only about an ounce of food.
- Next, the surgeon connects a small portion of the intestine (jejunum) to a tiny hole in the stomach pouch.
- The ingested food passes from the stomach to this tiny opening in the intestine, thereby resulting in absorption of fewer calories.
- Gastric bypass can be performed laparoscopically, a minimally invasive technique involving quicker recovery and less scarring than traditional open surgery.
- You will be asked to quit smoking (in case you do) several weeks before your surgery as the habit inhibits recovery process.
- You will be put on an exercise program (for about 20-30 minutes, 3-5 times a week).
- You will be asked to stop taking drugs that interfere with blood clotting, such as aspirin, vitamin E, and warfarin one week before your surgery.
- A day before your surgery, you will be put on clear liquid diet.
- For 2-3 weeks after your surgery, you will be asked to eat only liquid or pureed foods.
- Take about half an hour to eat a meal.
- You will have to drink at least 8 cups of water or other calorie-free liquids ever day.
- Do not drink for at least half an hour after you’ve had a meal.
- Also, do not drink anything while eating.
- You will have to take nutritional supplements for the rest of your life.
