Information About Gastric Bypass Surgery In Mexico

By Linda Ruiz

Gastric bypass surgery is a procedure that is done on human or animal stomachs to subdivide it into 2 sections. The portions comprise of two pouches, the upper and lower. The upper division is normally very small compared to the lower one. Gastric bypass surgery in Mexico is comprised of several variations. The variations come about due to different methods through which the stomach portions are relinked to the intestines.

The functional volume of the belly is reduced a lot by all the gastric bypass surgical procedures. The way the stomach physically and physiologically responds to food also changes. Various conditions can lead to the prescription of these procedures to patients. The most common conditions that lead to the prescriptions are hypertension, type 2 diabetes, morbid obesity, and sleep apnea. Morbid obesity is only treated using this process when the body mass index exceeds 40th mark.

The procedure comprises of variations such as MGB and Roux en Y proximal and distal. The most exercised variation is the Roux en Y proximal. Roux en Y proximal is also the commonest bariatric surgery done in USA. Intestines get divided at a length of around 45 centimeters after the lower stomach passage. The process has a Y in its name because intestines get made into Y arrangement after being divided.

The Y arrangement is made out of about 80 to 150 cm of small intestine. The remainder of the tube is left for use in absorbing nutrients into the body. After the process is done, the stomach of a patient feels full of food after taking little food. Afterwards in-difference to food and increasing satiety are felt. The absorption of fats, starches and other food nutrients is highly reduced.

This surgical procedure reduces the volume of the belly by more than 90 percent. Stretching of the pouches is avoided by constructing them from belly tissues that do not stretch like other stomach tissues. Although the pouches do not gain more volume by enlarging, the point of connection between stomachs and intestines may stretch with time.

Stomachs are bound to increase in volume slightly over time, but by the time that happens weight will already have been lost to desirable levels. Also, only reasonable stretching occurs to support reasonable body mass. Ingesting a small amount of food causes the walls of the belly to stretch immediately. The brain receives signals notifying it that the belly is full with food hence the feeling of fullness. No matter how little the food eaten is, the signals are still sent to the brain and the feeling of a filled stomach is felt.

To avoid causing discomfort or vomiting, meals should be taken slowly and carefully. For maximum efficiency of treatment, 5-6 meals should be taken daily. Snacks, confectionaries, or cookies should be avoided between meals because they can impede the efficiency of treatment.

Meals immediately after surgery should only be 0.25-0.5 of a cup. Progress should be made to a cup in a year. Failure to follow rules can cause obesity again. Some people have fallen victims of obesity again after they have undergone this surgery.
