Frequently Asked Questions

Most patients go home the day after surgery once they can drink enough to stay well hydrated. Because of the small incisions, the pain usually is well controlled with oral pain medications at home. Almost all the patients are expected to walk a few hours after gastric sleeve surgery and can start their clear liquid diet the morning after their surgery.

As you lose weight, you may be able to reduce or eliminate the need fro many of the medications you take for high blood pressure, heart disease, arthritis, cholesterol, and diabetes. Do not stop taking your medication without consulting your primary care physician.

Yes. Most people think of a “diet” as a plan that leaves you hungry. That is not the way people feel after surgery. Eventually, most patients get some form of appetite back 6-18 months after surgery. Your appetite is much weaker, and easier to satisfy than before. This does not mean that you can eat whatever and whenever you want. Healthier food choices are important to best results, but most patients still enjoy tasty food, and even “treats.”

Having a sleeve gastrectomy means that you will be on smaller portions but, you can eat most things in moderation. If you have had a bypass or switch then you will be on a limited diet. This means plenty of protein, carbohydrates and very little fat. If you have something which is high in fat then one of the more unpleasant side effects is that of diarrhea. Your dietician at the aftercare visits will be able to advise you more on this.
