How Much and How Fast will I lose Weight After Surgery?
You may lose up to 85% of your excess weight after a by-pass. Weight loss is the fastest in the first 3 months and the rate reduces thereafter. You will continue to lose weight for a year and a half until 2 years. You may lose about 85% of your excess weight. After that, the body stabilizes and does not lose weight further. However exercise may help you lose the rest. To gain the maximum benefit from any gastric bypass surgery, it is important that the patient eat only at regular meal times consisting of say 5 to 6 small meals daily, and avoid eating or snacking between these meals. The danger of not following these suggested rules following any bariatric bypass surgery is that the patient can over time effectively circumvent the the benefits of the by-pass altogether.
How is the Operation Done?
The entire gastric by-pass or Mini Bypass procedure is done laparoscopically, where laparoscopes are used by the Surgeons to gain access through the abdominal wall through small surgical incisions. There is virtually no scarring. There are usually 6 small incision marks on your tummy. The largest one is about 1 cm. These marks will fade away over time.
What diet restriction are there Following Surgery ?
You will need to be on a liquid diet for approximately 15 days after the surgery. This is followed by 15 days of semisolid foods and then you progress onto solids. Within 2 to 3 months you can have most kinds of food although in limited quantities. Please note that sweet intake should be kept to a minimum since it could lead to ‘dumping syndrome’. Patients are also required to take a nutritional supplementation following surgery to ensure a balanced diet intake is maintained and a higher quality of Life after Gastric Bypass Surgery.
