Gastric Bypass Surgery- What No One Tells You

What was once believed to be only for the rich and famous is now becoming a popular procedure for ordinary folks. Gastric bypass surgery is a way to improve a person’s health as well as their appearance and this type of “stomach stapling” surgery also affects how a person eats and how their food is digested when they do eat. It is important to note that this form of surgery is not geared towards individuals who have only a few pesky pounds to lose but is instead meant for those who fall into the extremely obese category.

Gastric Bypass Facts

Before you schedule a visit to your doctor’s office to discuss having gastric bypass surgery be aware of some important points that no one will tell you automatically just because you are considering the surgery:

  • Some health insurance plans will cover the cost of the surgery while others will cover only part of the cost. However there are some companies that will not pay at all unless the patient can prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that medically their life is in danger if they do not have the surgery. This will involve documents from a healthcare professional that show your exhaustive medical history. You might do well to have a back up plan in place in the event that your health insurance will not cover the surgery.
  • While fatalities are not commonly associated with gastric bypass surgery, it is a form of surgery and for that reason there are risks involved. Tragically some people do die as a result of gastric bypass surgery, however if it does happen it is usually within 12 months of the surgery and the cause is most likely to be a surgical complication that resulted in the development of a stomach infection that went undiagnosed and untreated.
  • One of the potential side effects of this surgery is called the “dumping syndrome.” This means that after surgery sometimes patients will become very edgy and nervous, will begin to sweat profusely, might become confused and sometimes disoriented and might experience shakiness. This is most commonly seen in people who eat more than they are recommended to eat by their doctors.
  • Other side effects that sometimes take place are a temporary elevation of heart rate, lightheadedness and blackouts. These side effects however are rare but they do happen.
  • You cannot eat after the surgery as you did before and instead must follow very stringent guidelines in regards to your daily diet.
  • Deficiencies are common after gastric bypass surgery such as protein deficiencies, vitamin and mineral deficiencies and even dehydration. Extra protein is needed daily to help replace tissues that were damaged as a result of the surgery and a multi vitamin taken daily is highly recommended.
  • In the early postoperative phase do not drink anything with you eat or you could end up bloated or vomiting and dumping syndrome might also set in.
  • It is a good idea to avoid beverages that are either very hot or very cold.
