Risks of Bariatric & Gastric Surgery

Written by Diet Bites

STOMACH STAPLING & GASTRIC SURGICAL PROCEDURES

Weighing the Risks of Bariatric & Gastric Surgery for Weight Loss


Long Term Complications from Gastric Surgery

1. Abscess (including wound infection) - a collection of fluid generally treated with antibiotics to fight infection and relieving the abscess via draining.

2. Pneumonia - infection in the lungs generally attributed to gastrointestinal tract.

3. Massive loss of blood, requiring a transfusion.

4. Bowel Obstruction (including bowel leakage) - generally corrected with surgery to clear blockage.

5. Urinary Tract Infection - treated with antibiotics.

6. Stomach Obstruction - requires additional surgery to correct.

7. Nutritional problems - sometimes chronic.  Corrected with nutritional supplements and diet.

8. Hair loss - which generally stabilizes with time.

9. Depletion and loss of muscle mass which is preventable through exercise (yes, vigorous exercise is recommended after surgery and must be maintained).

Short Term Complications from Gastric Surgery

1. Nausea

2. Reaction to foods:

- the patient may require switching to lactose free dairy products

- red meats may cause vomiting as they are difficult to digest

- the body may no longer be able to process sugar and it may require elimination from the diet
