Nowadays the rate of obesity and its related problems and illnesses are increasing, so the issue of weight loss has become more and more important. Although the best way to lose weight is to have a proper diet and exercise, sometimes the obesity problem is very serious, which is not easily resolvable, and other methods, such as surgery can be considered. Sleeve gastrectomy has become a popular therapeutic approach among patients with obesity who are seeking weight loss. This method reduces the stomach volume so the appetite is reduced and the patient loses weight. This method is usually done based on laparoscopy. But it is generally not recommended to perform gastrectomy as a treatment for obesity unless all other procedures have failed. Sleeve gastrectomy is usually done for many purposes other than obesity. The most important of which is the treatment of some stomach problems that cannot be treated in any other way, as in the following cases: • The presence of stomach tumors (malignant or benign). • Bleeding. • Certain infections. • There are holes in the stomach wall. • The presence of strange lumps and appendages inside the stomach. • Stomach cancer. • Ulcer acute stomach.
The bariatric surgeon may recommend a pre-operative diet before the surgery which has protein but carbohydrates and fat limitations. This diet makes the body ready for the surgery. Patients should tell the surgeon their complete medical history and medicines and supplements intake. The surgeon will also ask for laboratory tests like blood tests and some medical images to check body health completely and to ensure the patient's readiness for the process and its ability to bear it. 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. Smoking increases the hypothetical period that the body needs to recover after the operation, and increases the chances of infection. If the patient is a woman, she must inform the doctor if she is pregnant, intends to become pregnant, or has any diseases such as diabetes.
