A Gastric Bypass procedure divides the stomach into a small upper pouch and a much larger lower pouch and finally the small intestine will be connected to both. Surgeons have developed several different ways to reconnect the intestine, thus leading to several different gastric bypass procedure names. Any GBP leads to a marked reduction in the functional volume of the stomach, accompanied by an altered physiological and physical response to food.

Gastric bypass surgery is prescribed to treat morbid obesity, diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea and other comorbid conditions. This treatment should be realized by specialists endocopists and surgeons that will apply the latest techniques. Most people stay in the hospital 2 to 3 days, and get back to normal activities in 3 to 5 weeks.

In normal digestion, food passes through the stomach and enters the small intestine, where most nutrients and calories are absorbed it, it eventually passes into the colon and the remaining waste is excreted.

Since Gastric Bypass makes your stomach smaller, you will get full more quickly when you eat, the doctor will give you specific instructions about what to eat after the surgery. For about the first month after the procedure, your stomach can only handle small amounts of soft foods and liquids while you are healing.

Serious side effects as bleeding in stool, in very rarely cases blood clots to the lungs and leaks in the new connections made by the weight loss surgery can appear. Let your doctor know about this immediately. Also, you may notice that your skin is sagging. You may choose to get surgery to remove it.
