Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery

The pros

· The mini bypass decreases the risk of co-morbidities. These are conditions resulting from morbid obesity. It relieves obesity symptoms like sleep apnea, diabetes, edema and arthritis.

· It is less invasive, hence safer. The surgery involves fewer incisions compared to the standard gastric bypass surgery and this does not only make it safer but also reduces complications.

· It is so much shorter in terms of operating and recovery. The mini surgery takes not more than an hour and the patients are allowed to leave hospital in 24 hours only.

· It involves less rerouting of the intestines. This means that it is technically easier, even for the surgeons to perform the surgery with higher success rates.

· It has reduced chances of complications because it has a fewer intestine connection or anastomosis.

· It is less expensive compared to the standard gastric bypass.

· Patients are able to get back to normal activities within a week; the healing process is relatively quick because the procedure is less invasive.

The cons

· High risks of malabsorption and vitamin and mineral deficiency complications. This is because a large portion of small intestines gets bypassed during the procedure.

· Chances of bile reflux gastritis. This is considering that mini gastric bypass surgery does not divert the bile and digestive enzymes from stomach, hence chances of the condition that can be hard to treat.

· Even though the mini surgery is less invasive, it still carries potential infection risks. Leakage or infection among staples connecting revised stomach pouch and intestines cannot be ruled out.

· Dumping syndrome may occur. This happens when the food tends to pass too quickly through the digestive track this leading to dizziness, diarrhea and nausea.

· Possibility of complications similar to Roux-en-Y gastric surgery with the most common being surgical site hernias, ulcers and other minor infections.

Risk for Peripheral Neuropathy

If you have ever had a limb fall asleep you have had the sensation. Pins and needles as the blood returns – it feels uncomfortable and sometimes painful. Only with neuropathy, that feeling doesn’t simply vanish. Numbness, tingling, pain, sensitivity, weakness and even burning may be experienced due to damaged nerves.

Diagnosis involves your health care provider testing your reflexes and muscle strength, as well as neurological tests to detect response to vibration, light touches, and pokes. Blood tests may be ordered as well, electromyography (tests electrical impulses), and in severe cases, a nerve biopsy may be taken.

The first step is to determine if the neuropathy is permanent or temporary. If it’s caused by a medication, stopping the medication should halt the symptom. If caused by a nutritional deficiency, supplementation and diet are altered and symptoms may resolve over time. If the cause is diabetes and nerve damage treatment will be aimed at non-allowance of further damage over time.
