What is the pre-and post-operative follow-up to lose weight?
Preoperative management is very important since the patient is suggested a liquid diet, which is free of proteins and fats, and this helps to decrease the size of the liver, and there is also an adjustment in the patient medications the are taken for blood pressure and diabetes control.
Once the procedure is completed, the patient release, with a close follow-up and returns for a check fifteen days after the surgery.
The first appointment is to remove the stitches and to evaluate the hygienic habits of the patient, also to clear any nutritional doubts that they have from the guides given to the patient after their discharge.
The patient begins to see the results on the first 15 days after the surgery, the clothes feel looser, they have more freedom in their daily activities such as: getting on the car moving freely. After the first month, the patient must do some adjustments to the medications by visiting his/her family Dr.
Some patients who used insulin prior to surgery, modified them by oral hypoglycemic agents and those who used oral hypoglycemic agents, stopped using them the following month.
It is important to mention that each patient will lose weight differently since there are some variables such as age, metabolism, sex and food that the patient is ingesting.
The result will be more favorable if the patient carries out a nutritional follow-up and initiates the physical activity from the immediate postoperative, in addition we will take a close control jointly with the nutritionist during the following year.
During long-term follow-up, we observed many benefits with surgery because hypertensive patients ceased to be, diabetics were controlled up to more than 50% and patients with sleep aphnea ceased to be 30%, we also see That patients can perform a completely normal physical activity.
