Anyone who is considering this surgery I'd say go for it. Best decision I have ever made, yes I am a little sore and tired but I weirdly feel very energised as if my mind has just clicked into hyper drive and my body hasn't caught up yet... The owner of this hospital should be extremely proud of every single member of their staff they really do deserve the praise.

I went for a Gastric treatment and I must tell you that for this doctor it was no bother as it went very well. Everything went smoothly and gentle. The clinic itself was based locally which made it convenient for me and the price was within my budget as well.

I was treated with the utmost care. Every member of staff from the reception to the nurses were so lovely and caring. Dr Salman was so calming and informative. There was no pressure to commit at the consultation. I have been researching having this surgery for over 10 years and I knew after my consultation that I had found the right clinic. I would highly recommend Auralia Clinic to anyone.

Gastric Bypass Surgery FAQs

There are a lot of versions of the gastric bypass (or the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass) but they all do the same thing.

There are two main parts to the procedure:
1. A small pouch is created to divide the top of the stomach from the rest of
the stomach.
2. The top part of the small intestine is cut, and the bottom end is brought up
and connected to the new pouch in the stomach.

The procedure is completed by connecting the top portion of the divided small intestine to the small intestine further down. This allows stomach acid and digestive juices to mix with the food and digest.

In order to be eligible for bariatric surgery, your BMI should be over 45 or be over 40 with weight-related medical conditions. You will also need to complete a surgical, medical, psychological and dietary evaluation before you’re approved for a gastric bypass. If you have any questions about eligibility, feel free to get in contact with our team today.

Dumping syndrome is a condition that can develop after gastric bypass and also after sleeve gastrectomy. It occurs when sugars move from the stomach into the bowel too quickly.

Most people with dumping syndrome develop signs and symptoms, such as abdominal cramps and diarrhea, 10 to 30 minutes after eating. Other people have symptoms one to three hours after eating, and still others have both early and late symptoms. These include:
● Nausea
● Vomiting
● Abdominal cramps
● Diarrhea
● Flushing
● Dizziness, lightheadedness
● Rapid heart rate
Generally, you can help prevent dumping syndrome by changing your diet after surgery. Changes might include eating smaller meals and limiting high-sugar foods.

Although around 60-70% of gastric bypass patients develop some degree of dumping, in only around 5% it does become chronic and require specific treatment in the form of medication or (rarely) surgery.

Some patients even claim to like dumping because they regard it as a form of aversion therapy – to stay away from sweet things!

 

Although calories are generally absorbed as normal after a gastric bypass, vitamins and minerals are most certainly not. So, it is absolutely essential for you to take regular (daily) vitamins and minerals after bypass surgery. If you fail to do this, you are almost certain to run into serious health problems, such as anaemia, nerve damage and bone disease. Key micronutrients include Vitamin B12, B1 (thiamine) and D, calcium, iron and zinc. You will be given detailed information regarding vitamin and mineral supplements after surgery.

A gastric bypass is an invasive operation and an experienced surgeon is a necessity when getting this procedure performed. Despite causing significant changes to the anatomy of your bowel and stomach 99.8% of patients do survive the procedure. In fact, a gastric bypass procedure is safer than getting your hip replaced.

With every surgical procedure, however, there are risks and the general risks of a gastric bypass include:

● Excessive bleeding
● Infection
● Reactions to anaesthesia
● Blood clots
● Breathing problems
● Leakage

There are also some longer-term risks and complications of bypass surgery including:

● Dumping syndrome
● Gallstones
● Hernias
● Low blood sugar
● Vitamin and mineral deficiencies
● Bowel obstruction
