How you prepare
If you qualify for sleeve gastrectomy, your health care team gives you instructions on how to prepare for surgery. You may need to have various lab tests and exams before surgery.
Before your surgery, give your doctor a list of all medicines, vitamins, minerals, and herbal or dietary supplements you take. You may have restrictions on eating and drinking and which medications you can take.
If you take blood-thinning medications, talk with your doctor before your surgery. Because these medications affect clotting and bleeding, your blood-thinning medication routine may need to be changed.
If you have diabetes, talk with the doctor who manages your insulin or other diabetes medications for specific instructions on taking or adjusting them after surgery.
Diet after Gastric Sleeve Surgery in iran
Right after the surgery
Right after the surgery a patient should consume only clear liquids. Sugar should be avoided as it may contribute to a dumping syndrome, which is caused by a rapid influx of sugars. Coffee may worsen acid reflux and thus should be limited to a minimum as well. Carbonated drinks should not be consumed as they cause gas formation. While still at the clinic, the patient will be introduced to pureed food and low-fat yoghurt. Pureed diet is advised for approximately six weeks after surgery.
Six weeks after surgery
During this period the patient is advised to consume baby food or homemade vegetable and lean meat purees, low-fat yoghurt without chunks, protein shakes, homemade clear broth. Baked and pureed apples, peaches or pears may be introduced as a snack, but preferably consumed in the first part of the day, as fruit are high in sugars. If not enough proteins are consumed with foods, protein powder may be added to the purees. Coffee or tea intake should be limited to no more than two cups per day. Water intake should be at least 1.5 liter of water a day. Remember to always eat slowly and chew well. Every meal should last at least 20 minutes.
When still on pureed foods, the patient should stick to unseasoned, caffeine-free, sugar-free, low-fat pureed products. Protein intake should be increased on week three. The patient may continue drinking protein shakes and introduce boiled or cooked eggs, jarred baby foods, pureed fish and avocados, hummus, mashed bananas, and other non-fibrous fruits.
After a month
After a month semi-solid foods may slowly be added and gradually transitioned into solid foods. Well-cooked chicken, fish and vegetables, sweet potatoes, low-fat dairy products, and low-sugar cereal are favorable choices, firstly roughly mashed with a fork. The patient should still avoid high-fat products, steaks, fibrous fruits, white potatoes, and other high-carb options. Caffeine should be reintroduced with moderation.
Note that the results of the procedure depend on one’s willingness to acquire and maintain healthy eating habits. From the fifth week forward the patient may introduce new foods and keep the emphasis on lean protein and vegetables. Sugary sweets and drinks should still be avoided. Learn to notice the difference between emotional binging and true hunger. Do not forget to keep hydrated.
Advantage of Gastric Sleeve versus Gastric Bypass Surgery
- Technically, the Gastric Sleeve is a much simpler surgery. The operating time for gastric sleeve is usually 40-70 minutes, while gastric bypass surgery takes approximately 2-3 hours to complete.
- There is a much lower chance for nutrient or vitamin deficiency with the Gastric Sleeve procedure. In addition, there is no mal-absorption for Gastric Sleeve patients.
- Some long-term complications could occur with the Gastric Bypass patients including bowel obstruction, marginal ulcer, and internal hernias. The chance of Gastric Sleeve patients developing these complications is exceedingly rare.
As with any major surgery, sleeve gastrectomy poses potential health risks, both in the short term and long term.Risks associated with the sleeve gastrectomy can include:
- Excessive bleeding
- Adverse reactions to anesthesia
- Blood clots
- Lung or breathing problems
- Leaks from the cut edge of the stomach
