What is gastric bypass surgery?

This surgery is an option for those patients whom tried dieting methods and exercises but they were unsuccessful. They dream of having a healthy, thin and beautiful body shape in reasonable amount of time. Gastric bypass surgery is the most common type of weight-loss surgery. It is a surgery that helps losing weight by changing how stomach and small intestine handle the food intake. This surgery is contraindicated for alcohol and drugs abusers and if active gastric ulcer exists, the surgery should be postponed to the time that ulcer healing is completed.

• Patients whom BMI is above 40 • Patients whom BMI is between 30-40 with life threating problems like diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, high cholesterol and severe sleep apnea • Patients older than 18 years old • Patients must be willing to make major changes in their lifestyle

The bariatric surgeon may recommend a pre-operative diet of two weeks before the surgery which has protein but carbohydrates and fat limitations. This diet makes body ready for the surgery. Patients should tell the surgeon their complete medical history, allergies, medicines and supplements. Patients may ask to stop taking some medicines like aspirin, warfarin, ibuprofen or vitamin E a week before the surgery and whole patient’s medicines are adjusted before the surgery. Women are also questioned about their pregnancy status or their intention to become pregnant. They are being asked to do lab tests and physical exams to make sure that this surgery can be done for them. It is important to know that patients should try to stop smoking for better outcomes and they should stop smoking at least 30 days before surgery.
