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.

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.
