Patient Information Regarding Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery (FAQs)

Frequently Asked Questions of Laparoscopic MGB
A: Both surgical procedures help promote weight loss by limiting the number of calories one can consume in a single meal (restrictive weight loss) as well as the number of calories that can be absorbed by the body during the digestion process. However, the primary difference between mini gastric bypass surgery and a full gastric bypass is that the mini version of the surgery is performed in a modified manner that involves less intestinal rerouting and shorter overall surgery time.
A:  Generally, mini-gastric bypass can only be a probable option if –
1.    Extensive efforts to lose weight through diet and exercise proved futile or unsuccessful.
2.    Your body mass index (BMI) is 40 or more.
3.    Your body mass index is 35 or more, and you have been diagnosed with a serious weight-related health problem (such as high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes)
4.   You are a teenager with serious obesity-related health problems. In such case, your least body-mass-index must be 35, and you must have attained puberty.  
A: there exist a number of risks involved in the surgical procedure. Typical of them all are vitamin and mineral deficiency, dehydration, gallstones, kidney stones, and hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). However, seeking the counsel and help of an experienced physician reduces the risks of any complications to almost zero. 
A: Weight-loss surgeries can help reduce your risk of weight-related health problems such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and sleep apnea. However, mini gastric bypass, like other weight-loss surgeries are major, life-changing procedures. Consequently, you must meet specific medical guidelines and undertake extensive screening processes before you can to qualify for weight-loss surgery.
A: mini-Gastric bypass is a surgery targeted towards decreasing a patient’s stomach size and creating a partial bypass of their small intestine to reduce caloric intake. The procedure is done in such a way to enhance both restrictive and malabsorption weight loss. By reducing the number of calories a person consumes, weight loss becomes attainable, especially when matched with regular fitness and healthy diets.
A:  Post-surgical recovery is expected within six months. The long recovery time is due to the body’s adaptation to rapid weight loss and change in diet.
A: After surgery, most patients return to work in one or two weeks. You will have low energy for a while after surgery and may need to have some half days or work every other day for your first week back.

A: Complications in Mini Gastric Bypass include hemorrhage, staple-line leak, stricture, obstruction, nutritional deficiencies, GERD, cholelithiasis, and weight-loss failure. LMGB has additional complications, in the form of marginal ulcer, anastomotic leakage, and chronic alkaline reflux.
A: At World Laparoscopy Hospital, MGB Surgery would cost you approximately 2 lac 50,000 rupees.
The good news is that after 2-3 month of surgery, there is much less risk of experiencing problems during pregnancy (gestational diabetes, eclampsia, macrosomia) and during childbirth. There are also fewer miscarriages and stillbirths than in heavy women who have not had surgery and weight loss.
The key is to start slow. Listen to your body and your surgeon. If you lift weights or do sports, stay “low impact” for the first month. Build slowly over several weeks. 
A: Some hair loss is common between 3 and 6 months following surgery. The reasons for this are not totally understood. Even if you take all the recommended supplements, hair loss will be noticed until the follicles come back.
A: Some patients will choose to have plastic surgery to remove excess skin. Most surgeons recommend waiting at least 18 months, but you can be evaluated before that.
