Gastric Bypass Surgery

What To Remember After Weight Loss Surgery
If you are obese and have tried everything that you can think of to lose weight, then you might want to consider one of the gastric bypass Tampa surgeons who can perform the surgery to help you with weight loss. The procedure shrinks the size of the stomach, decreasing the number of calories that the body takes in during the day. Since the number of calories you take in is lower, you will lose weight at a steadier pace.

The Procedure

The surgery is often completed by stapling the stomach. Sometimes, part of the stomach is cut away. Small tools are often used during the procedure, which makes the recovery process easier and shorter since there are no long incisions on the stomach.


After the surgery, you will spend a few days in the hospital to recover and to learn how to adjust to the amount of food that you can now eat. When you get home, you will notice that it’s difficult to eat the large meals that you once enjoyed. It’s also recommended that you be on a liquid diet for a few weeks after surgery. Once you can eat solid foods again, you should try to get as much protein as possible to give the body energy.

Side Effects

There are certain things you should be cautious of after you have gastric bypass. Since the stomach will get full faster, you might find that the intestine will receive waste products faster than before. This can cause diarrhea in some people. You might feel tired and shaky as the body is eliminating food faster than its maintaining the nutrients. Sip water during the day so that you don’t get dehydrated. Rest when needed, but remember you need to try to get exercise into the daily routine as this will help you lose weight.


When you eat, chew your food thoroughly as this will allow the vitamins and minerals to enter the body. It can sometimes allow you to eat a bit more food as well since the body has more time to digest the food consumed. If you overeat after the surgery, the stomach could return to a larger size, which would prevent weight loss.
