Gastric bypass surgery for rapid weight loss in Iran
Gastric bypass surgery is one of the methods of slimming surgery in people who cannot get thin through diet and exercise methods.
Generally, in this method, the volume of the stomach is reduced and the pathway of the period is shortened and the food is drained without complete digestion.
Gastric bypass surgery is very effective in the treatment of obesity (overweight) and treatment of obesity-dedicated diseases such as heart disease, apnea, type 2 diabetes, and prevention of stroke caused by obesity.
Who has gastric bypass surgery?
1- Having BMI>40 (severe obesity)
2- High risk diseases associated with obesity and having 40>BMI >35
Gastric bypass surgery is indicated for several clinical reasons including benign and malignant upper gastrointestinal tract pathologies. Any gastric resection or bypass procedure interferes with gastric emptying and the aim of reconstruction is to minimize the disturbance to the upper gastrointestinal physiology. Gastric bypass procedures induce early satiety, with or without concomitant impaired absorption of nutrients, and offer the best solution for morbid obesity. The long-term health benefits of gastric bypass surgery for morbid obesity must be found to outweigh the operative risks and side-effects of gastric bypass and thus patient selection is fundamental.(https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2405857216300328)

Risk of abdominal food leakage and infection: Using the correct diet and using food in small volumes in the first few days, this possibility disappears and its diagnosis is the symptoms of infection and increased heart rate, etc. This problem is treated with serum therapy and low dietary volume if the leakage is very low, otherwise it is necessary to have re-surgery.
Nausea and vomiting: This can happen if the volume of food is too normal.
