Mini Gastric Bypass Procedure Details

Mini gastric bypass in Punjab is very common as it best suits the lifestyle and eating habits of people in this region. In this procedure a long gastric pouch is created along the lesser curvature of the stomach. 180cm – 200cm of the small intestine is bypassed and then the intestine is connected with the new stomach pouch so that food is separated from the gastric and biliary juices. The food and juices start mixing after a bypass of 2 meters of intestine resulting in lesser and delayed absorption of nutrients.

Is mini gastric bypass reversible / Can I get my mini bypass reversed

Yes, mini gastric bypass is best known for its reversibility. All our patients are happy after Mini gastric bypass and don’t need reversal. Some patients who need to lose weight for undergoing liver or kidney transplant get reversal of the procedure after they have achieved the desired weight.

However, if any patient has poor compliance with protein diet or finds it difficult to take supplements or has developed the wrong social habit of smoking and developed marginal ulcers then we can completely reverse it in less than 1 hour.

Do I need to take supplements after mini gastric bypass

In mini bypass, we create a bigger anastomosis so that you have freedom to eat and bypass 180 cm of intestine so that your food and gastric juices mixing is delayed. This results in delayed breakdown and absorption of nutrients. You need to take regular intake of supplements lifelong, which include calcium, multivitamins, proteins and Iron to avoid any nutritional deficiency in the body.

Can I smoke after mini gastric bypass / Smoking after gastric bypass surgery

One should avoid smoking after bariatric surgery but In gastric bypass and mini gastric bypass its an absolute contraindication. In chronic smokers, there is Ischemia at the site of gastrojejunostomy and patients can develop marginal ulcers which are difficult to heal and may perforate and could be life threatening. For these patients, sleeve gastrectomy or sleeve gastrectomy with bypass procedure is a better option for weight loss.

Do I have reduced absorption after mini bypass surgery

Mini gastric bypass is a malabsorptive procedure and causes lesser absorption of food and nutrients to induce weight loss. The weight loss stops after 1 year of mini gastric bypass and the reason is intestinal adaptation. The bypassed intestine increases its absorptive surface area in a year to absorb more nutrients to match body requirement. If you are taking any medications, they will get normally absorbed after 1 year of mini bypass surgery.

  • Anemia: Regular testing can be done in patients who are prone to low hemoglobin or iron levels. Minimum once a year blood workup is advised to address iron or any other nutrition deficiency in patient post mini gastric bypass.
  • Loose motions: Usually seen in patients not following dietary guidelines. One of the reasons for loose motions can be taking solid and fluids together. Minimum 30 minute gap should be maintained between taking a solid and a liquid food item. Gulping liquids can also cause loose motions in some of the patients post mini gastric bypass.
