Obesity has become an epidemic and is the cause of several life-threatening health conditions such as diabetes, heart diseases, stroke, blood pressure, fatty liver disease etc., which are collectively referred to as metabolic syndrome. The fundamental cause of obesity is substantial energy imbalance in your body. When the number of calories you consume exceeds the number of calories you spent, it results in fat accumulation.

What is Bariatric Surgery?

It is a broad term used to describe a number of procedures that help people to lose weight. It works by reducing the amount of food you can eat or reducing the nutrients you can absorb. Bariatric surgery is often also called as Obesity surgery.

Qualification for Bariatric surgery

Bariatric surgery may be an option for adults who have

  • a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or more, OR
  • a BMI of 35 or more with a serious health problem linked to obesity, such as  type 2 diabetes, heart disease, or  sleep apnea
  • a BMI of 30 or more with a serious health problem linked to obesity, for the gastric band only

Types of Bariatric Surgery

Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass

Gastric-Bypass-Surgery

The Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass* – often called gastric bypass – is considered the ‘gold standard’ of weight loss surgery.

First, the surgeon staples your stomach, creating a small pouch in the upper section. The staples make your stomach much smaller, so you eat less and feel full sooner.

Next, the surgeon cuts your small intestine and attaches the lower part of it directly to the small stomach pouch. Food then bypasses most of the stomach and the upper part of your small intestine so your body absorbs fewer calories. The surgeon connects the bypassed section farther down to the lower part of the small intestine. This bypassed section is still attached to the main part of your stomach, so digestive juices can move from your stomach and the first part of your small intestine into the lower part of your small intestine.

Pros:
1. Produces significant long-term weight loss (60 to 80 percent excess weight loss)               
2. No objects placed in body.

Cons:
1. Difficult to reverse.
2. Higher chance of vitamin shortage than gastric band or gastric sleeve.
3. Higher chance of surgery-related problems than gastric band.
4. Requires adherence to dietary recommendations, life-long vitamin/mineral supplementation, and follow-up compliance

In gastric sleeve surgery, also called vertical sleeve gastrectomy, a surgeon removes most of your stomach, leaving only a banana-shaped section that is closed with staples. Like gastric band surgery, this surgery reduces the amount of food that can fit in your stomach, making you feel full sooner. Taking out part of your stomach may also affect gut hormones or other factors such as gut bacteria that may affect appetite and metabolism. This type of surgery cannot be reversed because some of the stomach is permanently removed.

Pros:
1. Greater weight loss than gastric band.
2. No changes to intestines.
3. No objects placed in body.
4. Short hospital stay.


Cons:
1. Cannot be reversed.
2. Chance of vitamin shortage.
3. Higher chance of surgery-related problems than gastric band.
4. Chance of acid reflux.

Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy

Gastric Sleeve surgery

Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Band

In this type of surgery, a ring is placed with an inner inflatable band around the top of your stomach to create a small pouch. This makes you feel full after eating a small amount of food. The band has a circular balloon inside that is filled with salt solution. The surgeon can adjust the size of the opening from the pouch to the rest of your stomach by injecting or removing the solution through a small device called a port placed under your skin.

Pros:
1. Can be adjusted and reversed.
2. Short hospital stay and low risk of surgery-related problems.
3. No changes to intestines.
4. Lowest chance of vitamin shortage.

Cons:
1. Less weight loss than other types of bariatric surgery.
2. Frequent follow-up visits to adjust band; some people may not adapt to band.
3. Possible future surgery to remove or replace a part or all of the band system.

Bariatric surgery is just a tool and you will have to take discipined actions related to diet, nutritional supplements, physical activities, lifestyle changes etc to achieve successful weight loss.

 

Initial 12-18 months after surgery are important as your body undergoes changes. You will need to be mentally strong to follow the recommendations of your doctor.

Dr.Manish Joshi’s team include’s a Psychologist, a Physician, Dietitian, Physiotherapist who would provide you with all the help you require post your surgery.

Also, seek support of your family & friends as you undertake this transformation.

Connect with people who have undergone this transformation before you, as they can guide & provide you with their experience and how they handled the changes.

On individual case by case basis our team will assess the requirement of nutritional supplements. You may have to take one or more of the below supplements.

1. Multivitamin
2. Vitamin D
3. Calcium
4. Iron
5. Vitamin B12

Bariatric surgery improves / resolves most of the coexisting diseases like high BP, Diabetes, Sleep Apnea, Asthma, heart disease, arthritis, GERD & cholesterol.

As you loose weight our team of Physicians will recommend appropriate changes to your medications.

Short answer is YES. As your stomach size or intake is reduced, you will have to eat food more frequently & in smaller quantities. This does not mean you have to stay hungry, just follow the diet plan provided by our dietitian for better results.

Exercise is important. You may start with moderate exercise like walking. As your body gets adjusted to the new life, you may do brisk walking, moderate flexible exercises. You may consult with our Physiotherapist for any guidance required.

Do not do exercises such as weights, sit-ups, pull-ups, or any abdominal straining without getting a green signal from our team.

Both are a strict No-No.

In fact you will have to leave smoking before your surgery itself to reduce the risk of blood clot and lung infection.

Alcohol is also a strict No-No. Alcohol has high calories and no nutrition and hence it goes against your weight loss goals. If you have undergone gastric sleeve or gastric bypass, the enzymes required to digest alcohol may not be available. There is a risk of you developing alcohol dependence which will go against your weight loss goals ad objectives. 

We recommend waiting for 18-24 months (after bariatric surgery) before getting pregnant.

By this time your weight would have stabilised and you would have adjusted to your new lifesytle.

Taking a decision & undergoing bariatric surgery is the easiest part. The most challenging part is the struggle after surgery to get adjusted to the new life. This is where you would need to be mentally & emotionally strong.

Life might throw up some work & personal situations which could give you stress & anxiety. You might get tempted to break the rules & recommends provided by your doctors. Sometimes you might feel low and think as you are getting adjusted to this new life.

In such situations, it is always advisable to contact your Doctor , Psychologist and get counselling from them.

An Incisional Hernia is a result of weakness in the muscles of abdomen and is likely to occur after any abdominal surgery. When abdominal muscles go through weakness, then, the abdomen tissues are extended through them. Actually, the incision which is made at the time of surgery causes the Incisional Hernia. Hernia appears under the skin as a knot and can cause pain if touched. Do remember, if a person is having the problem of hernia in abdomen but has not gone through any abdominal surgery, then the hernia in not the Incisional hernia.

People at the risk of having Incisional hernia are:

  • Who have gone through any abdominal surgery
  • Pregnant women
  • Who lift heavy things after surgery
  • Who have gained weight after surgery
  • Who have gone through two surgeries in the same incision or have had wound infection

Feeling a lump or swelling in the abdominal part can lead you to the diagnosis of the Incisional hernia. What you have to do is get involved in activities which tend to increase the pressure on the abdominal. For instance, you can cough, sneeze or lift something heavy to detect if there is any change in that part of swelling or lump. If it is there while doing these activities and is hidden after that or when you simply lay down, then, there are more chances that it is an Incisional hernia.

If the Incisional hernia is small enough then it can be cured by wearing a garment that is similar to weight belt. This garment will help to cure the hernia by applying a constant pressure on it. On the contrary if the hernia is large and causes pain, then a surgery is recommended. Mainly there are three methods by which the Incisional hernia can be cured and these are:

  • Open surgery and stitching
  • Laparoscopic surgery or Keyhole surgery
  • Tension-free mesh

In the Open Surgery, a large incision is made where there is a hernia and then the bulge of peritoneum is pushed back through the incision. After that, the incision is closed by applying stitches on it. Normally, many stitches are placed to ensure that the joint will hold for the rest of patient’s life.

In the Laparoscopic Surgery, the hernia is repaired using a laparoscope. The surgeon will make small incisions in the abdominal wall which can be two to four in number. One is used for inserting the laparoscope and others for putting in the additional surgical instruments. The actual operating is accomplished by the instruments and space for these operations is made by inflating the abdominal cavity of patient with CO2. Then, mesh is taken from inside the abdomen to cover the hernia hole. For fixing the mesh, the muscle tissues are stapled.

The tension free method is similar to the laparoscopic surgery, with the difference that in the former one, only one incision is made through which the mesh is placed at the opening of hernia and incision is closed. There is no need to stitch the muscle tissues together in this approach.

After that, the incision is closed by applying stitches on it. Normally, many stitches are placed to ensure that the joint will hold for the rest of patient’s life.

In the Laparoscopic Surgery, the hernia is repaired using a laparoscope. The surgeon will make small incisions in the abdominal wall which can be two to four in number. One is used for inserting the laparoscope and others for putting in the additional surgical instruments. The actual operating is accomplished by the instruments and space for these operations is made by inflating the abdominal cavity of patient with CO2. Then, mesh is taken from inside the abdomen to cover the hernia hole. For fixing the mesh, the muscle tissues are stapled.

The tension free method is similar to the laparoscopic surgery, with the difference that in the former one, only one incision is made through which the mesh is placed at the opening of hernia and incision is closed. There is no need to stitch the muscle tissues together in this approach.

If the Incisional hernia is small enough then it can be cured by wearing a garment that is similar to weight belt. This garment will help to cure the hernia by applying a constant pressure on it. On the contrary if the hernia is large and causes pain, then a surgery is recommended. Mainly there are three methods by which the Incisional hernia can be cured and these are:

  • Open surgery and stitching
  • Laparoscopic surgery or Keyhole surgery
  • Tension-free mesh

An Incisional Hernia is a result of weakness in the muscles of abdomen and is likely to occur after any abdominal surgery. When abdominal muscles go through weakness, then, the abdomen tissues are extended through them. Actually, the incision which is made at the time of surgery causes the Incisional Hernia. Hernia appears under the skin as a knot and can cause pain if touched. Do remember, if a person is having the problem of hernia in abdomen but has not gone through any abdominal surgery, then the hernia in not the Incisional hernia.

People at the risk of having Incisional hernia are:

  • Who have gone through any abdominal surgery
  • Pregnant women
  • Who lift heavy things after surgery
  • Who have gained weight after surgery
  • Who have gone through two surgeries in the same incision or have had wound infection

Feeling a lump or swelling in the abdominal part can lead you to the diagnosis of the Incisional hernia. What you have to do is get involved in activities which tend to increase the pressure on the abdominal. For instance, you can cough, sneeze or lift something heavy to detect if there is any change in that part of swelling or lump. If it is there while doing these activities and is hidden after that or when you simply lay down, then, there are more chances that it is an Incisional hernia.

Then, mesh is taken from inside the abdomen to cover the hernia hole. For fixing the mesh, the muscle tissues are stapled.

The tension free method is similar to the laparoscopic surgery, with the difference that in the former one, only one incision is made through which the mesh is placed at the opening of hernia and incision is closed. There is no need to stitch the muscle tissues together in this approach.

If the Incisional hernia is small enough then it can be cured by wearing a garment that is similar to weight belt. This garment will help to cure the hernia by applying a constant pressure on it. On the contrary if the hernia is large and causes pain, then a surgery is recommended. Mainly there are three methods by which the Incisional hernia can be cured and these are:

  • Open surgery and stitching
  • Laparoscopic surgery or Keyhole surgery
  • Tension-free mesh

In the Open Surgery, a large incision is made where there is a hernia and then the bulge of peritoneum is pushed back through the incision. After that, the incision is closed by applying stitches on it. Normally, many stitches are placed to ensure that the joint will hold for the rest of patient’s life.

In the Laparoscopic Surgery, the hernia is repaired using a laparoscope. The surgeon will make small incisions in the abdominal wall which can be two to four in number. One is used for inserting the laparoscope and others for putting in the additional surgical instruments. The actual operating is accomplished by the instruments and space for these operations is made by inflating the abdominal cavity of patient with CO2.

An Incisional Hernia is a result of weakness in the muscles of abdomen and is likely to occur after any abdominal surgery. When abdominal muscles go through weakness, then, the abdomen tissues are extended through them. Actually, the incision which is made at the time of surgery causes the Incisional Hernia. Hernia appears under the skin as a knot and can cause pain if touched. Do remember, if a person is having the problem of hernia in abdomen but has not gone through any abdominal surgery, then the hernia in not the Incisional hernia.

People at the risk of having Incisional hernia are:

  • Who have gone through any abdominal surgery
  • Pregnant women
  • Who lift heavy things after surgery
  • Who have gained weight after surgery
  • Who have gone through two surgeries in the same incision or have had wound infection

Feeling a lump or swelling in the abdominal part can lead you to the diagnosis of the Incisional hernia. What you have to do is get involved in activities which tend to increase the pressure on the abdominal. For instance, you can cough, sneeze or lift something heavy to detect if there is any change in that part of swelling or lump. If it is there while doing these activities and is hidden after that or when you simply lay down, then, there are more chances that it is an Incisional hernia.
