Are you worried about the gastric bypass surgery risks?
Gastric bypass surgery is not to be undertaken lightly and for many is a last hope to help them achieve significant weight loss and the resultant health benefits.
Gastric bypass surgery leads to a marked reduction in the functional volume of the stomach resulting in significant weight loss and is a procedure normally used to treat morbid obesity. A Gastric bypass first divides the stomach into a small upper pouch and a much larger, lower “remnant” pouch and then re-arranges the small intestine to allow both pouches to stay connected to it.
The long-term mortality rate of gastric bypass patients has been shown to be reduced by up to 40%, however, complications are common and surgery-related death occurs within one month in 2% of patients in bypassing the stomach size.
If you are looking into a stomach bypass and checking the gastric bypass surgery risks you may wish to consider the alternative.
The alternative is to have a series of hypnotherapy weight loss sessions which is weight loss without diet – hypnosis combined with Cognitive Behavioural Techniques (CBT) and is over four sessions and for a fraction of the cost of gastric bypass surgery. Hypno Band Weight Loss System ™ is a completely safe and alternative way to lose weight and carries no risks.
Gastric bypass surgery risks
• Bleeding – There is always the possibility that a wound can re-open after surgery.
• Infection – No matter how clean the hospital there is always the risk of infection.
• Blood clots – In the lungs (Pulmonary embolism) or in the legs (Deep vein thrombosis).
• Leaking of fluids – Fluids can leak around the stapled stomach pouch or at the ‘Y’ part of the small intestine.
• Stomach ulcers – Ulcers can be painful, but are treatable with medication.
•Reaction to anaesthesia – Sometimes people can have an adverse reaction to anaesthesia or to medication.
• Stenosis – this is a condition in which the join between the stomach pouch and small intestine narrows or even closes up.
•Death – This is rare but it can happen and accounts for around 0.5% of cases, as all general anaesthetic procedures carry a risk.
• Dumping syndrome – This is a condition in which food passes or is ‘dumped’ too quickly from the stomach into the small intestine.
The alternative option is weight loss with hypnosis – Hypno-Band – Weight loss system ™
Many people ask the question “is gastric band hypnosis successful” and the answer is yes and it is a much less dramatic alternative to having gastric band surgery, which is invasive and carries the usual risks associated with any operation and anaesthesia.
