They should tell the doctor their medical history and allergies, as well as medicines and supplements intake.

The surgery begins after general anesthesia is prescribed. Nowadays, this surgery is usually performed laparoscopically. Thus after making some incisions on the abdomen, laparoscopy instruments are inserted by the surgeon. The first step of the surgery is to remove about 70% of the stomach so that a tube-like stomach will be shaped. During the second step, the surgeon connects about 1 to 1.5 meters from the end of the intestine to the stomach valve called the pyloric valve.

After this surgery, depending on the situation, the patient will stay in the hospital for some nights. Drinking liquids can be started from the first day and gradually change to pureed foods, soft foods, and then ordinary foods. The schedule of this food change is based on body tolerance. The doctor will prescribe medications to prevent problems associated with reduced nutrient uptake, such as vitamins, minerals, and protein. Also, a follow-up check-up schedule is necessary to monitor health and vitamin, mineral, and protein levels after surgery. (In any specialist’s office)
