What is Gastric Bypass Surgery?

Gastric bypass surgery is a type of bariatric surgery that helps people lose weight. Your doctor will make adjustments to your stomach and small intestine during gastric bypass surgery to change the way they absorb and digest food.

The following are some of the ways that gastric bypass can help you lose weight:

  • Putting a limit on how much food your stomach can store
  • Limiting the number of calories and nutrients absorbed by your body
  • Changing your gut hormones, which help you feel fuller for longer, can help you lose weight and reverse metabolic syndrome caused by obesity.

Frequently Asked Questions About Gastric Bypass

Weight loss for gastric bypass patients is expected to be around 70% of their excess weight* on average. Obviously, some people will perform better than this, while others will not.

To enable the effects of the anesthetic and any post-operative analgesia (painkillers) to wear off, you should not drive for at least 2-3 days after your surgery. After that, driving may be a little painful until the port sites have fully healed, which normally takes around 10 days. )

This depends on your profession, but if you work in a sedentary environment, you should be able to return to work in about two weeks following gastric bypass, by which time the wounds should have healed and you should be feeling more comfortable. If you have a physically demanding work that requires lifting and other physical activities, you may need a bit more time. The gut and stomach within your belly will heal in 6-8 weeks, therefore it’s critical that you stick to the nutritional instructions as precisely as possible during this time.

There are a variety of reasons why gastric bypass surgery improves pregnancy and labor. To begin with, as you lose weight*, your fertility increases, making you far more likely to conceive (this is important to know if you don’t want to become pregnant!). Second, lowering weight lowers the chance of difficulties for both you and the baby. Finally, your weight loss will allow you to be much more active both during and after pregnancy, allowing you to enjoy what should be a very joyous time in your life even more. Dr. Pablo Garcia will give you all the help, advice and support you need should you become pregnant following a gastric bypass operation.
