Is the mini gastric bypass safe or better than the?

Is the mini gastric bypass safe or better than the?

mini gastric bypass: The mini gastric bypass is not endorsed by any asmbs or any of the top academic bariatric surgery programs in the country. It is safe, but it is basically a billroth 2 operation which can cause bile reflux. The fix for that problem is a roux-en-y gastric bypass meaning that for 50 years we have known that a roux-en-y is better than a billroth 2. The b2 is just easier for the surgeon to do. ...Read more

Could you tell me what happens ten years after a gastric bypass?

Could you tell me what happens ten years after a gastric bypass?

10yrs after bypass: Hopefully nothing. We hope that your bypass anatomy stays the same and that you maintain your weight loss. People can regain weight if they overeat, eat junk food, or don't exercise. You have to constantly work at it. Sometimes the weight gain is due to stretching of the pouch or anastomosis or both.

What is the likelihood of death and complications of gastric bypass?

Gastric bypass risk: It depends on where you have surgery. Nationwide, the risk of death is about 1/500 to 1/1000 operations.

I would only trust my associate and a handful of colleagues to do a bypass on myself or a relative. ...Read more
