Sleeve gastrectomy is that the procedure where the left lateral part of the stomach is dissected and removed with a special surgical device called a stapler.
A stomach is made, which measures 150-200 ml in volume, and thus, the quantity of food influx is decreased. Moreover, it’s possible to suppress the appetite, because the fundus of the stomach – the gastric dome – is removed, where certain hormones are secreted that stimulate the appetite.
Patients are generally observed for two days after the operation and that they are discharged thereafter. And patients face no problem in engagement to daily routines after discharge. Patients should start eating liquid foods in early postoperative period.
This diet lasts approximately for 1 month and therefore the patient is gradually switched to solid foods. Food servings and contents require strict attention following transition to solid foods.
This also ensures the lost weight isn’t regained. One should remember that regaining the lost weight after the surgery may be a patient factor instead of a surgery-related problem. Weight gain is probably going for the patients who don’t suits diet.
A proper diet should be combined with regular exercise to quicken the load loss and minimize the sagging. Therefore, we recommend our patients to start out exercising immediately after the top of convalescence.
Sleeve gastrectomy may be a very safe surgery if it’s performed by experienced surgeons and it’s the foremost effective technique for loosing excessive weight.
Type 2 DM and obesity generally coexist and that they cause serious problems, like renal failure and blindness secondary to generalized damage to blood vessels and attack, stroke, and loss of limbs secondary to vascular occlusions.
“Metabolic surgery” may be a novel rescue and treatment option for patients, if diet and medications don’t help the condition.
Metabolic surgery techniques are surgical procedures that aim permanent and appropriate regulation of glucose metabolism by influencing the physiological processes additionally to restrictive anatomic changes and balance the blood sugar levels in intestines instead of reducing the volume of the stomach and ensures the more efficient and effective functioning of neuropeptides and hormones, which trigger the feeling of fullness, in patients who are obliged to undergo revision surgeries thanks to frequent failures.
These surgeries not only control DM, but they also prevent complications of diabetes; patients get obviate obesity, while hypertension is regulated and cholesterol and lipid metabolisms improve.
