What is a gastric bypass ?

Gastric Bypass, like the gastric band and the gastric sleeve is one of the techniques of bariatric surgery and is intended, in general, for patients suffering from morbid obesity and whose mass index body is 40.

It consists of designing a stomach cavity connected to an organic short-circuit which will only bring nutrients into contact with pancreatic, gastric and biliary secretions after a meter and a half of the intestinal journey.

The number of pounds that you can lose depends on many factors, such as your diet, physical activity level, health status, and other individual factors.

In general, patients can lose between 50-70% of their excess weight within 18-24 months after gastric bypass surgery.

However, it is important to note that weight loss may be slower in some patients and that long-term maintenance of lost weight depends on commitment to a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet and a healthy diet.

These tests are there to help the doctor establish an operating strategy and figuring out the best and safest technique for your condition.

You will also need to have a consultation with the anesthetist to best schedule the progress of this operation which takes place under complete general anesthesia.

It is highly necessary that you schedule an appointment with a dietitian, this is so that they can assess your condition and give you the best meal plans for after the operation so that you don’t damage your body and keep the results of the operation for a long time.

What happens during the gastric bypass operation in Tunisia ?

The gastric bypass operation lasts an average of 4 hours and can even reach 6 hours.

Gastric bypass involves closing the stomach to reduce it to a small pouch and diverting food directly to the small intestine.

Food no longer has to pass through the lower part of the stomach or through the first part of the digestive tract.

The mini bypass consists of closing the stomach by separating it into two distinct parts, in the direction of the height, and connecting the smaller part to the small intestine.

Food passes through a larger part of the stomach before reaching the intestine.

What happens after the gastric bypass operation ?

Like the gastric sleeve, the bypass leads to a reduction in a large quantity of gastric cells which activates a digestive hormone responsible for stimulating appetite called ghrelin.

During the first period of your healing, it is normal to feel regurgitation in your stomach and esophageal reflux.

This is why you need to start with a liquid diet, after that you will be able to work your way up to pureed food and then soon enough you will be able to go back to eating normal food.

To relieve certain stomach pains, antiulcer drugs and injections of anticoagulants will be prescribed by your doctor.

Nutrients such as red meat should also be avoided during the first month; you can have your protein intake with other more digestible foods such as fish and dairy products.

A medical follow-up will be planned to monitor the progress of your recovery process.

There is also a “dumping” syndrome which is explained by too rapid passage of food from the stomach to the intestine.

Foods that are insufficiently digested before passing through the intestine can cause many side effects such as:

  • Nausea.
  • Vomiting.
  • diarrhea.
  • Dizziness.

After a gastric bypass, it is recommended to take food supplements to compensate for the loss of nutrients caused by the surgery.

This includes supplements of:

  • Iron
  • calcium
  • vitamins B12 and D
