Why gastric bypass surgery?
During bypass surgery, we reduce the stomach’s volume by connecting the top part of the gastric with the middle section of the small intestine. The intervention results in the loss of approx. 80-90% of the extra body weight due to reduced nutrient intake and less nutrient absorption. So the main point of bypass gastrectomy is “bridging”: a part of the food that the patient consumes goes directly into the small intestine, thus shortening the process of absorption.
By losing weight after surgery, the recovery rate of type two diabetes is 80-90%. Besides, it helps to improve self-worth and confidence. Patients who underwent surgery live a longer, happier life.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING GASTRIC BYPASS SURGERY?
During bypass surgery, we lead a little camera to the abdominal cavity through a little cut on the abdominal wall, as the surgery itself is made by laparoscopic technique.
The surgery reduces the volume of the gastric. Besides, by pulling up the bowel loop, we alter the journey and the absorption of nutrients. Due to this process, patients will be able to eat less and a smaller portion of the nutrients will be absorbed.
So this surgical intervention permanently reduces the volume and capacity of the gastric, which leads to less food consumption and faster satiety.
PREPARATION – THE PROCESS OF BYPASS SURGERY
It takes approximately 30-40 minutes. The medical specialist calculates the patient’s BMI, gives detailed information about the surgery and the further steps of the preparation.
To measure the patient’s health status, the following examinations are necessary: lab test, ECG, ECHO cardiogram, abdominal ultrasound, chest x ray, gastroscopy, dietitian, psychological and anaesthesia consultation.
2-4 weeks before surgery, the patient must follow a diet that shrinks the liver in size. That will prepare the body for surgery.
THE DAY BEFORE SURGERY
The day before surgery the patient will get an anticoagulant injection to avoid surgical risks. The patient can get the injection at home or in clinical environment.
WHAT DISEASES AND PLOBLEMS CAN BE AVOIDED?
Type two diabetes
As obesity if a number one risk factor for developing type two diabetes, the surgery has a good impact on people with diabetes. According to a newly published study, for 82% of the patients who underwent surgery, type two diabetes regressed within two years. The disease didn’t return for 62% of these people in the following two years.
However, most obese women are not infertile, according to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, in many cases the intervention helps to improve ovary functions and increases the number of pregnancies.
Shorter life expectancy
Amerikai és holland kutatók szerint az elhízás akár húsz évvel is megrövidítheti az érintettek élettartamát. Egy másik kutatás szerint a műtét a kórosan elhízottak körében összességében csökkentheti a halálozást.
The surgery can moderate joint pains that come from the high levels of loading. A research stated that areas affected by joint pains have been halved for patients in the first 6-12 months after the surgery . Besides, an Austrian research appointed that weight reduction surgery offers a solution for chronic inflammatory disorder, rheumatoid arthritis.
High blood pressure
A study states that 61,7% of the people who went under the surgery got their blood pressure normalized, and for 78,5% it significantly decreased.
Among pathologically obese people, coronary heart disease (CHD) and coronary artery disease (CAD) are quite common diseases. They can lead to chest pain (angina pectoris) and even heart attack (myocardial infarction). .
