Potential Patient for Gastric Bypass

An Overview of Gastric Bypass Surgery

  • Gastric bypass surgery is known by a number of other terms such as Roux-en-Y bypass, Roux-en-Y, RNY and GBP.
  • In this procedure, the stomach is divided into two parts – a small upper pouch and a much larger lower pouch.
  • The surgery also involves reconnecting the stomach pouches with the small intestine to enable the food to bypass part of the intestine.
  • This helps in absorption of fewer calories and hence, leads to weight loss.
  • WebMD reports that patients can expect to lose 60% of their excess weight after the surgery.

Pre-surgery Preparation

  • Kick the habit of smoking at least a month before your surgery.
  • Exercise for 20-30 minutes at least three to five times a week.
  • Make sure you restrict yourself to a diet rich in protein and calorie-free liquids for three weeks before your surgery.
  • Stop taking aspirin, its related products or any other kind of blood thinner for one week prior to your surgery.
  • Consume only liquids (clear broths, tea coffee (without milk), fruit juices without pulp) one day before your surgery.
  • Do not drink or eat anything after the midnight preceding your surgery.

Useful Travel Tips

If headed for your gastric bypass to Mexico, these tips may be of help:

  • Put your haggling skills to some good use when shopping.
  • Mexican food can be really spicy; one can give street food a miss if they have a sensitive stomach.
  • Spanish is the most commonly spoken language. Most doctors are well versed in English but the same cannot be said for the locals. So carrying a pocket dictionary could be beneficial.
  • Plastic money is widely accepted but you must carry the Mexican currency – Nuevo Peso (N$) – for small purchases; it is available in denominations of 20, 50 and 100.
  • It is advisable to avoid driving on your own here as driving rules are different and road signs, being in a different language, could be difficult to read.
  • If you do intend to drive here, check with your auto insurance provider in advance.
  • The northern part of the country experiences cooler temperatures as compared to the south.

If medical treatments at your native land are beyond your financial means, traveling to Mexico for RNY gastric bypass surgery could be a wise decision.
