5 Day Pouch Test For Gastric Bypass Patients
Yes, but ? need: Many bariatric programs routinely do a pouch leak test in the early post-operative period, some the day after, some waiting 5-7 days after surgery. The overall leak rate is low and does not always pick up all leaks, especially if done too early. In one study from UCLA, routine pouch leak studies after laparoscopic gastric bypass did not contribute signi?cantly to postoperative patient care ...Read more
What's the vitamin(s) requirement for pregnant gastric bypass patients? Adding a pre-natal on top of the vitamins i already take seems too much. Surgery was over five years ago. All blood work ok.
Yes: Regaining weight frequently happens. It used to be thought that it had to do with enlargement of the gastric pouch, but more recent studies suggest that it is related to a gradual widening of the gastrojejunal anastomosis (the joining between the stomach pouch and small intestine that is created). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Soda: Carbonated soda is bad for everyone. Regular soda has way too much sugar. Diet soda has sugar substitutes that are bad for you. So soda isn't good for anyone. For bypass patients, the co2 gas can build up in the gastric remnant and you can't burp that out. This can cause discomfort, but will eventually get absorbed. I tell my patients not to drink soda anymore. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Since the gastric sleeve can cause complication with a sarcoidosis patient. Is the gastric bypass better to have done with sarcoidosis?
sleeve ; sarcoidosis: Neither one (bypass or sleeve) is better than the other with respect to sarcoidosis. Studies have shown that people on immunosuppressive therapy can safely undergo either operation. I would just decide which operation is best for you. In a healthy ; moderately obese person, either operation is fine. If you have gerd, diabetes, or have a bmi over 50, bypass is preferred. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Gastric bypass patients are more likely to develop gallstones later on after surgery. How can this be prevented?
What is the best way to treat anemia for a pregnant patient with gastric bypass surgery 7 years ago?
B12 and Fe : Gastric bypass is associated with vit B12 deficiency which is secondary to loss of intrinsic factor secreted by the stomach along with fe (iron) deficiency which is absorbed by the duodenum. Moreover during pregnancy the blood volume increase to support the fetal circulation thus lead to dilutional anemia. The best approach is to receive vit B12 and fe replacements. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I know gastric bypass surgery is a great weight loss tool, but can patients take diet pill to help speed things up?
..five bite diet.. I can't afford the gastric bypass surgery thought I'd try this and guess what I've lost over 75lbs! I feel great! But is this safe?
Weight loss : You may have lost weight on this diet and it may have worked for you ! I don't think it is healthy , because you are missing out on nutrients , because you are eating such low volume of food . Unless you are taking some high powered organic , food supplements , I believe , long term side effects would be hair loss , brittle nails , saggy skin . Rethink this concept . See a dietician and a doctor ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm 46, recently got gastric bypass and have pain blocks regulary. I take10mg Valium before blocks. How long do they show up in urine drug test?
S/p gastric bypass sugery by you 12/2010. I have a high pth level w/low calcium levels , 4 tests all high, can this be parathroid cysts? Scan was ?
High PTH low ca: This condition is due to your gastric bypass. Calcium and vitamin D are absorbed in the small bowel. This is now bypassed. The PTH is elevated due to low calcium absorption and likely low vitamin D. This can be corrected medically, but in rare cases the bypass had to be reversed to correct the condition when it resulted in severe hypocalcemia. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Use blood levels: Lithium blood levels are monitored at a regular frequency and this way you can tell if you are absorbing the medication and if you are at therapeutic doses. For my patients having had gastric bypass is not an issue; rarely if they develop side effects by diving the dose into 2 times a day this resolves the problem. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Clean is good: If you mean a 10 day meal replacement with a balanced low sugar shake like medifast or glucose-controlled boost (plus all vitamins) it should be ok. However, the best diet to work with a bypass is a solid meal (protein and veggies) with no sipping, fewer slider foods, no sweets and no bad snacks. Might be good to check with your surgeon and program. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had gastric bypass 2.5 yrs ago. Im currently doing the standard process 21 day cleanse. Im on day 7. I feel weak & tired. Is this cleanse safe 4 me?
No cleanse: There is no "standard" cleanse of any type, let alone one that lasts 21 days. If it makes you feel weak and tired, it is probably doing you more harm than good. I would stop it, and maintain good hydration, don't eat too many calories, make sure the food that you do eat had all the vitamins and minerals, and take vitamin supplements as appropriate after a gastric bypass. ...Read more
I had gastric bypass 3 years ago, but am still trying to get the last 20 pounds off, how many calories a day should I consume to lose?
8-9 calories per lb: We have been doing indirect calorimetey on postop bariatric patients. We are finding a total metabolism of about 8-9 calories per pound. So, if you are now 200 lb, them you would ear about 1700 cal per day to maintain your weight. If you wanted to lose wt, then you can eat 1200-1400 cal per day. Eating 400 fewer cal per day would allow you to lose 1 pound in 9 days (3500 cal for 1 lb). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
