Diagnosed me with bile induced gastritis. Wants to do a gastric bypass. In my 40's,(5'4", 203), but isn't there a less invasive answer?

Diagnosed me with bile induced gastritis. Wants to do a gastric bypass. In my 40's,(5'4", 203), but isn't there a less invasive answer?

Options: Probably theist popular weight loss operation at the moment is a sleeve gastrectomy. Its not really less invasive, but has less potential for long term side effects. There are also some newer endoscopic therapies, but they are not so effective. Ask your doctor if a consultation with a Bariatric surgeon is appropriate. Hope this helps! ...Read more

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

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

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. However, if you go to a highly specialized center with a long track record, the risk can be much less than that. A bypass is a fairly difficult operation, whereas a lap band is very easy. I would only trust my associate and a handful of colleagues to do a bypass on myself or a relative. ...Read more
