Gastric Bypass Procedure Explained

  • Gastric bypass involves reducing the size of the stomach, stapling and sealing it to create a much smaller pouch to which a small part of the intestine is connected.
  • With a smaller stomach, the patient can expect to eat less and absorb fewer calories, resulting in rapid weight loss as well as an improvement in type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure.
  • There may some risks involved, however, such as:
    • Blood loss
    • Allergic reactions
    • Leakage through the staples
  • The procedure is alternatively known as Roux-en-Y bypass, Roux-en-Y and RNY.

What to Do Before Your Surgery?

  • You will be recommended a liquid diet two weeks prior to your surgery in order to reduce the size of your liver to facilitate the surgery.
  • Make sure you quit smoking several weeks before your surgery as smoking interferes with the healing process.
  • You will be asked to stop taking medications such as aspirin and ibuprofen one week before your surgery.
  • You will be asked to incorporate physical exercises in your daily routine.

Post Surgical Care

  • You will be put on a liquid diet 1-3 days after your surgery.
  • You will gradually be able to graduate to pureed and soft foods as your new stomach heals up.
  • Avoid eating fast or not chewing your food properly.
  • Do not drink anything while having your meals.
  • Do not drink anything for 30 minutes before and after you have a meal.
  • Avoid eating fatty, greasy, sugary foods as these will make you nauseous and also jeopardize your weight loss endeavors.
  • Avoid alcohol consumption.
