Gastric Bypass Surgery Requirements

Unread post by Taanya » Tue Aug 28, 2018 11:03 pm

Gastric bypass surgery is the most common type of weight-loss surgery. Gastric bypass and other types of weight-loss surgery, collectively known as bariatric surgery, make surgical changes to your stomach and digestive system that limit how much food you can eat and how many nutrients you absorb, leading to weight loss.

Guidelines to qualify for gastric bypass surgery
Gastric bypass and other weight-loss surgeries are major, life-changing procedures. While weight-loss surgery can help reduce your risk of weight-related health problems — such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and sleep apnea — it can also pose major risks and complications. You may need to meet certain medical guidelines to qualify for weight-loss surgery. You likely will have an extensive screening process to see if you qualify.

In general, gastric bypass or another weight-loss surgery could be an option for you if:
  • Efforts to lose weight with diet and exercise have been unsuccessful
  • Your body mass index (BMI) is 40 or higher
  • Your BMI is 35 or more and you have a serious weight-related health problem, such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure or severe sleep apnea
  • You're a teenager who's gone through puberty, your BMI is 35 or more, and you have serious obesity-related health problems, such as type 2 diabetes or severe sleep apnea
  • In some cases, you may qualify for certain types of weight-loss surgery if your BMI is 30 to 34 and you have serious weight-related health problems.

Hi, I had my surgery 9/11/18. I was unable to drink very much because everything felt like it was not digesting, sitting in my chest and throat. Had to go to emergency room. Had same problem going home, pick line inserted for TON, 2 days later infection and almost died. Blood pressure 67/28. Sent by ambulance to ER for more dehydration. I am now drinking and eating soft foods, but I get really jittery, shaky and lightheaded. I don't know what to do, I feel awful and no energy all the time. Please help.
