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

Bread is hard: To eat after any weight loss surgery unless it is toasted and crunchy. The doughy breads get stuck and do not go away quickly. Toasted breads with "melt" with saliva and, if it gets stuck, will eventually go away. Avoid raw bread, toast it. Really should limit bread intake though. Focus on hard, solid protein like fish and chicken. ...Read more

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

Gastric bypass diet: Ideally, a gastric bypass patient should be able to eat "normal food" long term.

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. In general though, people do fine 10 years out from surgery. ...Read more
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
