I had gastric bypass surgery ten yrs ago now have loose skin and hanging fat no one will help me get rid of it because of no insurance no help im mess
Save: Even with insurance there is no guarantee of coverage. Often what the patient feels is medically necessary and what insurance companies feel differ and the physician is caught in the middle. If it is a priority then you could save money slowly and if you have hanging fat perhaps a little more weight loss would be in order. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

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
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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Yes you can: The standard bypass does not remove any parts, so re-connecting the stomach pouch to the remnant stomach and removing the roux small bowel limb are possible. Reversal is rarely done since most problems causing patients to consider reversal can be treated with other means. The procedure has higher risk than the first operation since the surgeon is working with altered anatomy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Very safe. : Bariatric surgery has come a long way in the last 20 years. The major complication rate is in the range of 1-2 % but varies considerably between surgical groups. Find a skilled group who focuses on bariatrics and are fellowship trained in it. The bottom line is that the risk of death from living with morbid obesity is higher than the risk from surgery, by far. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Caution : The procedures are effective at helping you lose weight, but I have many patients in my practice who have had the procedures in the past and now have terrible nutritional deficiencies. They require pretty frequent iron infusions, which now must be done in the hospital at least where I am. I would never recommend the procedures. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Some risk: Modern gastric bypass surgery is much safer than it used to be, with a risk of death around 1% and other complications around 40%. The risk seems to be worth it though because the risk of death after successful surgery goes down 89% over five years. So if 100 people have gastric bypass, about one will die from the surgery, but 89 will survive longer than they would have without the surgery! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Complications: The worst complication is a leak which occurs 3% of the time nationwide (but about .5% of the time if you go a very experienced surgeon). Bleeding, infection, bowel obstruction, anesthesia complications are others, and these typically occur at 1% or less of the time. It is a safe operation, but go to someone that has done thousands of them. For example, my group has done over 5000. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Operations: In terms of ultimate weight loss, the bypass would be #1 followed closely by sleeve. The band would be a distant third. For fixing problems like diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sleep apnea, the ranking is the same. Sleeves are a good option for someone without diabetes or heartburn. If you have those problems or have a bmi over 50, the bypass is a better option. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
