Gastric Bypass Surgery

General Information

Overview

  • Obesity is the medical term for being very overweight. If you are obese or overweight, this means that you are carrying excess body fat.
  • Being overweight or obese is not just about how you look. Over time, it means that you have an increased risk of developing various health problems.
  • If you are obese or overweight, you have an increased risk of developing various health problems, including cancer, diabetes and heart disease.
  • Even a modest amount of weight loss can help to reduce your increased health risks. The best chance of losing weight and keeping the weight off is to be committed to a change in lifestyle. This includes eating a healthy diet and doing some regular physical activity.

How do I know if I’m overweight or obese?

BMI of 18.5 to 24.9 is considered as healthy weight

The most common way is to figure out your body mass index (BMI). BMI is a quick and simple way to help identify people who are overweight or obese. It allows you to compare your weight to what is considered “normal” for an adult with the same height.

 

What is bariatric or weight loss surgery?

Bariatric surgery, also called weight loss surgery, is a procedure to make the stomach smaller so you feel satisfied with less food. Bariatric surgery procedures are for people who are 100 pounds or more overweight and with a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or greater. Other criteria include not having had success with other weight loss therapies such as diet, exercise and medications. Bariatric surgery includes a number of procedures that modify the gastrointestinal tract to help you lose weight. More than 98 percent of JusthealthX patients who have undergone bariatric surgery have been operated using a minimally invasive approach.

Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass

During this procedure, a small stomach pouch is created to decrease the amount of food it can hold. Reconfiguration of the small intestine allows food to bypass a portion of the small intestine to limit the calories your body absorbs. By taking in less food and fewer calories, your body is able to lose greater amounts of weight faster than by dieting. This procedure, performed under general anesthesia, takes between two and four hours, with an expected hospital stay of two to three days

In gastric bypass surgery, most of the stomach is separated away from a small “pouch.” This pouch is about one ounce after surgery (the size of a golf ball). This is where your food will go after you swallow. The amount of food you can eat will be very small. Weight loss mostly occurs because portion sizes are limited. Also, levels of ghrelin (a “hunger” hormone) decrease, so your appetite is initially reduced.

After gastric bypass surgery, the connection from your pouch to your intestines will be a fixed opening, similar to a small funnel.  You will have to avoid certain foods, such as simple sugars like honey, white sugar, or syrups because of this.

Along with your stomach, the top part of your intestines will also be bypassed, meaning that food will not pass through that area.

  • High sugar foods may cause dumping syndrome
  • High-fat foods may cause steatorrhea (a type of diarrhea)
  • Durable weight loss
  • Improvement or complete resolution of more than 40 weight-related diseases
  • The average excess weight loss after the Roux-en-Y procedure is generally higher in a compliant patient than with purely restrictive procedures.
  • One year after surgery, weight loss can average 77 percent of excess body weight.
  • Studies show that after 10 to 14 years, 50-60 percent of excess body weight loss has been maintained by some patients.
  • A 2000 study of 500 patients showed that 96 percent of certain associated health conditions studied (back pain, sleep apnea, high blood pressure, diabetes and depression) were improved or resolved.

Possible Disadvantages

  • Ulcers from smoking or NSAID use
  • Stricture or narrowing of opening to intestines
  • Reactive hypoglycemia or low blood sugar between meals
  • Bypassing the intestines may lead to vitamin or mineral deficiency

Getting prepared for your surgery

• When preparing for any weight loss surgery you need to make a lifelong commitment to the dietary and lifestyle changes necessary for success.
• Tell your surgeon about any medications you are taking or plan to take throughout recovery. Vitamins, minerals and herbs interact with medications so don’t leave anything out.
• You will need to follow a pre-operation diet to prepare your body for surgery.
• Practice eating slowly, which includes chewing each morsel of food 15 times and putting the fork down between bites.
• You shall ideally quit smoking for at least a week before and after weight loss surgery. Smoking can increase the risk of complications, including potentially fatal blood clots. It can also affect the healing of the incisions and increase the risk of infection.
• Don’t drink alcohol for at least 48 hours before your weight loss surgery.
