Long-term complications & side effects of mini gastric bypass

. Internal hernia – Risk of internal hernia is considerably lower after mini-bypass (1:500) than after standard gastric bypass (2:100). Occasionally the loops of bowel in the abdomen can become entangled and get stuck. If this occurs, a reoperation is required to fix the problem.

. Adhesions – Any procedure in the abdomen can cause adhesions (scar tissue). This can occur any time after the operation and can sometimes cause problems with the bowel getting stuck or twisted. This may require hospitalization and may even require re-operation.

. Gastro-esophageal reflux – If reflux occurs post-operatively some patients may require acid-suppressing medication. This operation should be avoided for those people with severe symptoms of reflux prior to surgery.

. Dumping syndrome – Dumping syndrome is a group of signs and symptoms that usually occurs due to poor food choices. It is the result of high sugar foods passing too quickly into the small intestine. Symptoms can include cramping, nausea, dizziness, weakness and fatigue. Dietary advice to avoid dumping is provided by the clinic’s dietician.
