No, as there are several reasons not to drink soda after weight loss surgery:
No. Sleeve gastrectomy is an irreversible procedure. In the event of gastric sleeve failure, however, revision surgery is possible. Possible options are conversion to bypass, duodenal switch, or re-sleeve.
Long-term risks of weight loss surgery are:
The least invasive bariatric surgery is the intragastric balloon. It is a non-surgical procedure performed on an outpatient basis. The gastric balloon is placed through the esophagus. It doesn’t require any incisions or sutures and doesn’t leave any scars.
Single-incision sleeve (SILS) is the next least invasive bariatric procedure. The procedure involves making a tiny incision in the navel through which the bariatric surgeon inserts the special instruments.
Besides fewer scars, other advantages of SILS are quick recovery, less pain, and lower risks.
If you’ve regained weight or have insufficient weight loss after gastric bypass, your option is to have revision surgery. Gastric bypass can be revised to StomaphyX.
Another option is to convert its pouch to plication. It is interesting to note that while a gastric sleeve can be converted to bypass, the vice versa is not possible.
The restriction does lessen as time goes on. However, if you are happy with the amount of food you are eating and feel like you are doing a good job fueling yourself, there are a few things you can do to prevent the pouch from stretching.
All these tips are just small choices that you can make day in and day out to create positive habits for yourself.
