What is gastric bypass surgery?
During a gastric bypass, a small pouch of stomach is created and is joined to a bypassed segment of bowel. There are two joins, one between the stomach and the bowel and another to join the two loops of bowel lower down. It works by limiting the amount you can eat before you feel full.
This procedure has been widely used for 30 years and is seen as the UK ‘gold standard’ operation for weight loss, depending on your BMI.
It’s important that you’re fully aware of the implications before committing to gastric bypass surgery, as it requires a change to the way you think about eating, drinking and exercise.
