About Gastric Bypass
Gastric bypass, commonly known as Roux-en-Y (roo-en-wy) Gastric Bypass, is a kind of weight-loss surgery that entails separating a small pouch from the stomach and attaching the newly formed pouch straight to the small intestine. Following a gastric bypass, eaten food will travel through this little pouch of the stomach and into the small intestine, skipping most of the stomach and the first part of the small intestine in the process.
One of the most often carried out types of bariatric surgery is gastric bypass. When diet and exercise have failed or when you are experiencing major health issues as a result of your weight, a gastric bypass procedure is performed.
- When your body mass index is greater than 35.
- If you have other issues like diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, etc.
- If additional metabolic issues are being caused by your progressively rising weight.
- If you are putting on weight despite following a rigorous diet.
Gastric bypass and other weight-loss procedures can have significant long- and short-term health hazards, much like any major operation.
Similar to any abdominal surgery, there are risks involved with the procedure.
These risks include:
- Excessive Bleeding.
- Negative effects of anesthesia.
- Clots of Blood.
- Breathing or Lung issues.
- Gastrointestinal system leakages.
The following long-term risks and consequences of gastric bypass:
- Stomach Obstruction.
