What Is A Gastric Bypass?

In gastric bypass surgery, a large portion of the stomach is bypassed and a small volume (about 30-50 cc) of the stomach is prepared and sewn into the small intestine. This surgery is aimed at reducing the volume of the stomach as well as disabling part of the intestines and removing some of the food consumed without being absorbed. Thus, patients are fed less food, and some of the food they receive is absorbed. With gastric bypass surgery, the stomach is reduced and in addition the small intestine is attached to the shrinking stomach. As a result of this procedure, the patient eats less food due to the shrinking stomach and the small intestine is attached to the stomach, thus the absorption of nutrients is reduced. In this way, the patient metabolizes less than they eat. Thus, calorie intake is severely reduced and weight loss is achieved. One of the major advantages of this operation is that the food and the remaining fluids produced by the stomach combine at an advanced point, not immediately. Thus, fat and sugar absorption, that is, calorie absorption is decreased. The first step is to shrink the stomach. The surgeon divides the stomach into two parts: the upper part is small and the lower part is large. The upper part of the stomach (pouch) is where the food taken will go. This small part of the stomach is the size of walnuts and contains foods weighing only 28 grams. Therefore, when the patient eats less, he feels saturated and loses weight.

Before

  • Before gastric bypass surgery, some tests and examinations are applied to each patient.
  • These tests are then performed by anesthesia, Internal Medicine, Cardiology, Chest Diseases and Endocrine specialists. The results of these studies are primarily examined whether there is any other underlying disease that may cause the patient to gain weight.
  • If there is no such disease, the patient will be examined in terms of anesthesia as each patient will have surgery to see if there is an obstacle to the surgery. The relevant experts make suggestions about the treatments to be applied before surgery if necessary. This means that the problems that may occur during and after surgery are minimized.
  • In gastric bypass surgery, the structures of the stomach and small intestine are changed to allow the patient to lose weight.
  • Gastric bypass surgery is both a restrictive and an absorption-reducing procedure. As the stomach volume shrinks, the patient's food intake decreases.
  • In addition, as a result of the absorption of some intestine, total calories, protein and other nutrients in the patient decrease absorption.
  • After the operation, excessive/fast consumption of high-calorie foods (especially carbohydrate-containing foods) may disturb the patients, thus making eating/drinking habits healthier
  • .After surgery, patients can easily feel saturation by taking small amounts of food, and after a while this satiety turns into loss of appetite.
  • Total food intake is significantly reduced. Depending on the reduced size of the newly created stomach and reduced food absorption, instructions from the surgeon and dieticians should be followed for the use of the necessary vitamin and mineral supplements.
  • Thus, the patient can lose weight without experiencing loss of vitamins and minerals.
