Is it safe :
Obesity surgery carries risks not more than any other major surgery .By doing various tests and your evaluations before surgery it reduces the disease related risk.
What do I expect from Surgery :
Obesity surgery is a tool and not a complete treatment for obesity. It is important to have a regular follow up, controlled supervised diet, and regular exercise for weight loss. It is possible that your diabetes as well as hypertension may get partially or even completely resolved
Will obesity surgery work for me ?
Nothing can be guaranteed. However, obesity surgery has proven track record of success in achieving sustained weight loss over long period of time. Lapband will cause wt loss at average of about 55 % of excess body weight over long period of time. The incidence of failure of obesity surgery is rare.
How much weight will I loose ?
It is not predictable. But after lapband one looses 60% of excess weight in 18 months.
Types of Surgery :
Adjustable gastric banding
Gastric by pass procedure
Advantages of laproscopic surgery :
It causes less discomfort
Requires a very short stay after surgery
Early resumption of work
What will be my diet after surgery :
On a day after surgery, if your swallow study is ok you will begin sips of water. However you will Not use straws or carbonated beverages. You will start only with small amount of water to avoid over filling of the gastric pouch. If you tolerate clear water, you may be allowed to have lime water or electral water. On the third day when you tolerate clear lyquids without vomiting you will be shifted to caloric dense liquids and with clear lyquids. Gradually over the period of days you will drink more quantity of calric dense liquid with water.
Your first priority will be to drink enough fluid to prevent dehydration. Protein rich fluid is your second priority supplementing with appropriate vitamins and minerals. However always avoid food stuff that is high in fat, fibre (fruits & vegetable) and sugar.
Success to adopt to this modified food lies only with you. Always eat slowly and avoid over eating. Chew well your food & avoid drinking fluids 30 minutes before and with meals. Avoid sticky foods like cheese, pasta or bread. Also avoid any hard to digest food. Never have airated beverages and foods at extremes of temperature. And lastly try one new food at a time.

We cannot guarantee that your request will be met when you arrive. However, we will do everything possible to arrange your requested accommodation during your stay.

Please do not try to get out of bed by yourself if the rails are elevated or if your physician has requested you remain in bed. Once your physician has approved that you may leave your bed, please ask for help in getting in or out of bed if you are weak or unsteady on your feet.
A nurse call button is located at your bedside. Simply push this button when you need assistance and a member of your nursing team will come to your room or respond through the intercom at the nurses’ station.
