Gastric Bypass surgery is technically created by taking the small intestine from a certain segment and making an upward connection to the shrinking stomach.
Gastric Bypass surgery is technically created by taking the small intestine from a certain segment and making an upward connection to the shrinking stomach. The rest of the stomach is not removed as in sleeve gastrectomy. However, there is no food entrance to the remaining stomach. Gastric juices and enzymes continue to be produced for digestion and absorption of nutrients from the rest of the stomach. Patients with Gastric Bypass both eat less food and take less calories due to the reduction of the stomach, and a decrease in the absorption of high-calorie foods taken due to the transition from the remaining small stomach to the small intestine is created, and in this way, it also provides weight loss. After the full control, your suitability is approved and you will be operated.
Gastric sleeve recovery time depends on your condition and procedure. If you have gastric sleeve you can usually return home the third day after surgery. Most people return to work or other daily routines in 5 to 10 days.
*Some bariatric surgery risks include:
Chronic nausea and vomiting.
Dilation of esophagus.
Inability to eat certain foods.
With any procedure poor weight loss or weight regain can happen if there is a failure of behavioral modifications and dietary compliance.
First of all, it is useful to remind that a decision should be made by meeting face to face with a physician who is an expert on the subject. In addition, there may be situations where both surgical methods provide superiority to the other.
Stomach reduction surgery is based on the principle that approximately 80 percent of the stomach is separated and reduced in size. The position of the intestines is not changed and the absorption of oral nutrients is not affected.
In gastric bypass surgery, a sac of approximately 60 cc is created at the top of the stomach. With this stomach pouch formed, the small intestines are brought and combined in a way that the first part of the small intestine that absorbs the most is skipped. Thus, both a small stomach pouch is provided and the absorption of orally ingested nutrients is reduced.
The biggest difference between gastric reduction surgery and bypass is that absorption is not impaired in stomach reduction surgery. Therefore, since vitamin and mineral deficiencies can be seen in patients with gastric bypass, they may have to use supportive drugs for life. This is not the case in stomach reduction surgery. Vitamin and mineral support may be required from time to time only in case of insufficient nutrient consumption.
Another difference between gastric reduction surgery and bypass surgery is that gastric bypass surgery has a higher complication rate than gastric reduction surgery, as more than one anastomosis is performed. In addition, there is no significant difference between the two methods in terms of weight loss in the studies. Although gastric bypass is one step ahead in diabetes control, diabetes and hypertension control can be achieved with stomach reduction treatment.
Another difference is that if weight gain after gastric bypass, the chance of performing a new surgery is almost eliminated. In case of gaining weight after stomach reduction surgery, second operations such as omega bypass can be easily performed.
For this reason, sleeve gastrectomy, ie stomach reduction surgery, is more frequently preferred as the first-line treatment than bypass.
Since the stomach volume is generally reduced after Gastric Sleeve Surgery, the amount of vitamins we need to take decreases with the decrease in the food entering our body. In order to control this, some vitamins should be taken within the prescribed time under the control of your doctor after tube stomach surgery, obesity surgery.
It is recommended that you adopt a new lifestyle after sleeve gastrectomy to help you lose weight. To establish a healthy routine, you should start regular exercise, such as a daily ten-minute walk, about two weeks after surgery.
Rapid weight loss can cause temporary hair thinning. It may begin several months after surgery. Hair should re-grow once your weight stabilizes. Avoid hair treatments, and eat plenty of protein. Certain supplements may also help.
It’s common to lose 50 to 70% of excess weight over a one- to two-year period after gastric sleeve.
you do not drink alcohol. It can potentially damage your stomach pouch and cause bleeding. Your threshold for being legally intoxicated is greatly decreased after surgery.
