How to Prepare for and Recover From Bariatric Surgery

How to Prepare for and Recover From Bariatric Surgery


Getting bariatric surgery can be a life-changing experience, but the recovery can be long. You have to learn about what you can do to prepare for the procedure and how to recover once the surgery is complete.


Getting ready for bariatric surgery is a process that starts months before the actual surgery. It is important to prepare yourself physically, emotionally, and psychologically. A healthy diet, regular exercise, and a commitment to behavioral changes are all important factors in achieving success.

The goal of bariatric surgery is to provide lasting health benefits for people who are severely obese. During the preparation process, patients should be screened for conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, high cholesterol, obstructive sleep apnea, and other medical conditions.

The preoperative period is a time to learn about the surgical procedure and the post-operative lifestyle plan. Patients who have surgery in their home countries should be prepared to stay home and have a caregiver for at least a week. They should also prepare a healthy pantry and supplement supply. Patients traveling abroad for surgery will have a medical team around the following surgery to assist with recovery.

The post-operative diet is based on a plan designed for the patient's individual needs. It is important for the patient to eat small amounts frequently and to avoid foods that don't provide enough nutrients.

Surgical procedure

Surgical procedures for bariatric surgery are performed to change how the body absorbs energy. They can help you lose weight and improve your health, but they also carry a certain amount of risk.

Bariatric surgery is usually recommended when other weight loss methods have failed. It can be helpful in the short term, but it also requires a long-term commitment. If you're interested in bariatric surgery, there are several types to consider.

Gastric bypass is one of the most common types of bariatric surgery. It is a procedure that cuts out a portion of your stomach and creates a pouch. The new pouch restricts the amount of food that you can eat. It also reduces the number of calories and liquids that you absorb. The small pouch also decreases the hunger and allows you to feel fuller more quickly.

Surgical procedures for bariatric surgery are performed using minimally invasive surgical techniques. These techniques allow for smaller incisions, shorter hospital stays, and a better patient experience.

Side effects

Despite the great improvements that bariatric surgery can make to a patient's health, there are also possible side effects of this surgery. While they are rarely life-threatening, they can be frustrating. These effects can be prevented if patients follow their doctor's instructions.

One of the more common side effects of bariatric surgery is constipation. This is characterized by fewer than three bowel movements a week. The condition is typically caused by the loss of weight and the reduction of food intake.

Another common post-surgical effect is iron deficiency. This condition affects up to 40% of bariatric surgery patients. Fortunately, there are several methods to prevent this from occurring.

Bariatric surgery can cause your body to experience a variety of hormonal changes. This can have an impact on your tastes and cravings. You may even start to dread certain foods you used to love.

Bariatric surgery can also reduce your appetite. The procedure affects the hormone ghrelin which is responsible for controlling your appetite. This means that you will not feel hungry as often as you used to.


Whether you've had bariatric surgery or not, you should know that there are some basic steps you should take in order to ensure a smooth recovery. These include following your physician's directions and making lifestyle changes.

You will be on a liquid diet, which will be gradually replaced with a semi-solid diet. The diet is designed to ease your digestive system into the new lifestyle. You should also drink plenty of water. This is necessary to keep your body's organs hydrated, which is essential to the healing process.

You should also avoid lifting anything heavier than 10 pounds for at least a month after your surgery. You should also avoid sitting for long periods of time. If you do need to sit for a long period of time, try to move around regularly. This will help blood flow, and also keep your heart rate up.

You should also make sure you are eating a healthy diet. This will allow your body to heal faster. If you have trouble with your diet, you may want to see a nutritionist.


Gastric Bypass Surgery And Digestion

We tend to use the term gastric bypass surgery somewhat loosely these days and include both true bypass operations such as the Roux-En-Y and popular and less radical forms of weight loss surgery such as gastric banding. While both have a role to play in curing the problem of obesity, bypass surgery takes full advantage of the body to affect weight loss and, in order to understand just how gastric bypass surgery works, it is necessary to have a basic understanding of the digestive system.

The process of digestion begins as soon as you start to eat when, as you chew your food in your mouth, saliva, which contains the digestive enzyme amylase, is mixed with your food and starts to break down carbohydrates. Although it may not seem an important part of the digestive system, the saliva glands produce about 40% of the amylase used in the digestive process and so chewing your food properly is an essential part of the process.

Food is then passed down the esophagus and into the stomach where muscular contractions mix the food as digestive juices and pepsin are added. In adults the stomach typically holds the equivalent of about 3 pints.

Once thoroughly mixed the food is passed out of the lower end of the stomach through the pylorus, a circular muscle which opens and closes rhythmically to control the flow of food from the stomach.

Having left the stomach food enters the duodenum, which is about 2 feet in length and it the first of three sections that together form the small intestine. Here two other organs of the body come into play – the liver and the pancreas.

The liver passes bile, which is an essential enzyme used in the digestion of fat, into the duodenum and also receives essential nutrients from the duodenum through a series of veins known as the portal veins. The liver itself is thus also responsible for processing food products.

The pancreas, which is principally known as the organ which is responsible for producing insulin, also produces a number of digestive enzymes, including lipase, which mixes with bile in the duodenum to further assist in breaking down fat.

Once food has been mixed with various digestive enzymes in the duodenum it then passes into the jejunum, which is about 6 to 8 feet in length, and then on into the ileum, which is about 10 to 12 feet long, where the digestive process continues and nutrients are extracted.

Once digestion is complete the remaining waste products are passed into the large bowel which plays an important role in absorbing water to prevent excess water loss. Waste products are then held in the large bowel until they are released from the body.

Gastric bypass surgery by bypassing part of the small bowl (the duodenum, jejunum and ileum) restricts the body from absorbing calories from the food that is eaten which, in turn, leads to weight loss. However, it also restricts the absorption of a variety of necessary vitamins and minerals and this explains the need for life-long supplements following surgery.
