Should be stopped: Donnatal (phenobarbital atropine hyoscyamine and scopolamine) would delay gastric emptying so it should be stopped at least a week prior to the study.

Can atropine drops correct an eye that has peripheral vision loss from a hemispherectomy?

2 doctor answers5 doctors weighed in
Dr. Andrew Shatz

Not really: Atropine dilates the pupil, allowing more light into the eye and also increasing the width of the field of vision. Someone who has lost half of their visual field could certainly see more of the remaining field if their pupil is dilated, but only to a small degree, and with increased negative effects such as decreased near vision and increased light sensitivity and possible hallucinations.

Low iron levels: Your clinician needs to review your entire record, history, and complete an examination on you. This is a tricky situation. By your question, you are associating the bypass surgery with the iron deficiency. While you may be correct, there are other causes for iron deficiency, as with a myriad of colon problems (colon cancer, i.e.) that must be considered. Seek help as soon as possible.

What's a good diet for someone to follow if they've recently undergone gastric sleeve surgery and they need to intake 600 calories per day?

Sleeve diet : 600 calories is far too low for daily nutritional requirements. Yes it will make you lose weight but that is because it is starvation. You need around 1000 calories at a minimum. Most of your intake should be protein, veggies, fruits and only a small amount of carbohydrates.
