Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass Poland – (RYGB)

Gastric bypass – a bariatric surgery and stomach-altering procedure that helps you lose weight effectively. This procedure aims to help you consume less food by dividing the stomach into a small pouch and rearranging the small intestine. This pouch is connected directly to your small intestine, speeding up absorption and digestion. The gastric bypass works by dividing the stomach into two uneven parts; the pouch and a larger part of the stomach which focuses on secreting juices that support digestion. Also known as Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, the procedure is highly effective and could cause as much as an 85% drop in excess weight within the 6 to 18 months of surgery.

How Bariatric Surgery Works

Bariatric surgery alters the way the different parts of your stomach interact with one another. After surgery, this alteration reduces food consumption as the pouch fills up quickly and shortens the timeline between absorption and digestion.

Bariatric surgery usually involves an open cut in the stomach. However, this puts the patient at a higher risk of infection and elongates the recovery period.

To this end, KCM Clinic provides three-dimensional laparoscopic surgeries that involve 3-5 small incisions on the surface of your stomach, reducing the need for prolonged hospitalization and recovery period. At KCM Hospital as one of the few Bariatric surgery Centers in Europe and worldwide, laparoscopic surgery is performed with newest 3D visualization Olympus technology. 3D Imaging provides improved speed, accuracy and precision of the laparoscopic surgery with a new perspective on surgical imaging. Compared to traditional laparoscopy, the newest technique, helps restore the surgeon’s natural 3D vision and depth perception during surgical procedures.

Preparing For Bariatric Surgery

In the weeks leading to bariatric surgery, patients must maintain a strict and healthy liquid diet to ease up the stomach and liver. Keeping a liquid diet also helps to prevent surgical complications and ensure the success of the procedure. Your diet should be rich in protein and may be aided by multivitamins and other supplements recommended by your doctor.

It is important that several tests and examinations are conducted to ascertain your safety during the procedure. Some of the necessary tests include;

  • Surgical consultation in a Bariatric Clinic.
  • Exercise test on a treadmill, ECG, Echocardiography
  • Chest x-ray
  • Abdominal ultrasound
  • Laboratory tests such as morphology, HCV, electrolytes Hbs anti-body, urea, HbsAg, cortisol, vitamin B12, calcium, and others
  • Video-gastroscopy with Helicobacter-test with anaesthesia

At KCM clinic, we provide all required diagnostic tests and consultations with specialist Doctors as part of our medical package to patients, so you don’t have to worry about additional costs resulting in high gastric bypass cost abroad. In addition to the above tests, you will be required to follow a special pre-operative diet in the week preceding the surgery.

This pre-operative diet helps reduce your stomach and liver volume for a more comfortable surgery and recovery (post surgery rehabilitation). The diet is strictly for the week before surgery and should be stopped immediately after the operation.

Why Is A Diet Necessary?

The pre-surgery weight loss diet is essential because it is low in fat and carbohydrate content, helping reduce your glycogen levels. Glycogen is an energy-giving sugar variant stored in the liver. For best results, you avoid heavy meals in the week preceding your surgery to avoid a reduction in the operative diet’s efficacy.

In addition to special diets, the following guidelines help prepare you for bariatric surgery:

  • There should be no intake of caffeinated drinks (coffee and energy drinks) at least a week before your surgery date.
  • Eating is not allowed on the day of the surgery; only water may be ingested.
  • Your dietary intake in the week leading up to the surgery should be liquid only, such as soups and puddings. This may also include vegetables and fruits, but you should avoid eating foods rich in fats and carbohydrates.

After surgery, your eating habits will change as your stomach heals from the RYGB procedure. As your digestive tract adjusts to the new normal, you will need to inculcate new feeding habits such as a semi-liquid diet in about 5-6 daily portions for six weeks post-surgery. It is essential for meals to be in small volumes and contain joghurts, puddings, jelly, cream soups, and multivitamins like vegetables. Try to avoid sugar.

You may introduce other supplements like protein gradually as you begin to feel better. Your post-surgery diet needs to contain easily digestible food. Heavy meals that last long in the stomach should be avoided for several weeks after undergoing RYGB.

Though bariatric surgery can be strenuous on the stomach, medical technology advancements like laparoscopy help you to recuperate faster. Patients who undergo laparoscopic surgery can drink and move without assistance a few hours after the procedure. With laparoscopy, patients may return to work within a week after surgery. However, it is not advisable to engage in intense physical work. At KCM Clinic our patients stay for 3 days in the hospital for monitoring, rehabilitation and education.

RYGB Recovery

The rehabilitation  period after an RYGB procedure requires maintaining a strict diet and reducing the volume of food you consume. Taking these two steps will prevent you from developing complications after surgery. While it may seem demanding, ignoring dietary recommendations may cause constipation, dehydration, diarrhea, or in extreme very rare cases, gastric acid leakage.

Some other tips that can help you recuperate faster after bariatric surgery include;

  • Taking your medications as recommended by the doctor
  • Consume small volumes of food
  • Stop eating when you feel full, even if there’s still food on your plate
  • Avoid eating spicy foods or dishes containing spinach, broccoli, cabbage, and asparagus
  • Make a diet plan consisting of foods with low calories
  • Do not rush food, east slow.
  • You can supplement your medication with multivitamins and prophylaxis to prevent embolic complications.
  • Drink water or juice 15 minutes before and after feeding.
  • Eat small portions of food every two to four hours.
