What happens after Gastric Bypass Roux-En Y

Gastric Bypass Roux-En Y surgery essentially makes your stomach smaller and your bowel shorter. With a smaller stomach and a shorter bowel, you feel full quicker and your body absorbs fewer calories from food you do eat.

After gastric bypass surgery, the size of your stomach is reduced by 90%. With a significantly smaller stomach, you are satisfied by less food and as the stomach pouch stretches slowly after surgery (to roughly the size of a walnut), Gastric Bypass Roux-en Y surgery offers not just an instant weight loss option, but also a surgical option that can help with maintaining a lower body-weight long-term by eating a balanced three-meal-a-day diet after following the post-gastric bypass surgery diet.

Post weight loss surgery, all patients are at risk of nutritional deficiencies due to the malabsorptive technique of surgery. Nutritionists and bariatric surgeons can advise on ways to prevent nutritional deficiencies such as a lack of vitamin B-12 or iron and will advise on mineral and vitamin supplements to be taken.

Recovery post-surgery depends on the patients overall health prior to surgery. Most patients have fully recovered within 3 months of surgery and continue to see weight loss results for up to 12 months post-surgery.
