Long Term Complications Of Weight Loss Surgery

One complication of gastric bypass surgery may be the development of an ulcer where the small intestine is attached to the upper part of the stomach. Ulcers may occur in 5 percent of people who have gastric bypass surgery. Ulcers are most common in people who take aspirin or other medications called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents (NSAIDs).

A hernia or weakness in the incision occurs in about 15 percent of people who have weight-reduction surgery. This usually requires surgical repair, depending on the symptoms and the extent of the hernia. Patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery have a hernia rate of  2 percent.

A complication is a narrowing or "stricture" of the stoma (opening) between the stomach and intestine. This also may require another surgery, or more commonly an outpatient procedure that expands the narrowed area with a dilating tube that is passed to the stomach through the mouth.

Mayo Clinic physicians have recognized and reported on a serious complication following gastric bypass called NIPHS (non-insulinoma pancreatogenous hypoglycemia syndrome) or post-bariatric surgery hypoglycemia. This is characterized by very low blood sugar levels after eating that results in severe neurologic symptoms, including visual disturbances, confusion and  seizures.

Mayo physicians in Rochester have evaluated and treated several patients with NIPHS. When medical and diet therapy fail, surgical removal of part of the pancreas has resulted in marked improvement of symptoms for most. If symptoms described above occur, patients should notify their physician immediately. Until this condition is controlled, patients should avoid driving motorized vehicles or performing tasks that could effect the safety of those around them.

After Roux-en-Y gastric bypass the body cannot not absorb certain vitamins and minerals. Long-term complications of this malabsorption may include the following:
  • Anemia due to deficiency of iron or vitamin B12
  • Neurologic complications from vitamin B12 deficiency
  • Kidney stone disease due to changes in how the body absorbs calcium and oxalate
  • Possible bone disease due to mineral or vitamin D deficiency
Follow-up visits with the physician will determine which vitamin and mineral supplements are necessary after surgery. The need for vitamin and mineral supplements is especially true for people who have a very long limb Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, because this surgery can be associated with frequent diarrhea and failure to absorb enough calcium and iron.

Dehydration is a complication following weight-reduction surgery, as patients are no longer able to drink large quantities of liquid at one time.

In the first three to six months, the patient may experience one or more of the following changes as the body reacts to rapid weight loss:
  • Body aches
  • Feeling tired, like one has the flu
  • Feeling cold when others feel comfortable
  • Dry skin
  • Hair thinning and hair loss
  • Changes in mood
  • Relationship issues

Plane Crashes

Every day hundreds of thousands of aircraft take off and land and every day they do it successfully and without incident. On the other hand thousands of people die every day as a result of healthcare and one of the biggest causes of death are elective surgeries collectively known as bariatric surgeries. The odds of dying from gastric bypass within the first 30 days is one and 50. The ads of dying because you chose to fly in an airplane are probably greater than 100,000,000 to 1 yet some people will still opt to take a train, ride a bus or drive your car to a distant destination. Whether you choose to fly, go by train, ride a bus or drive your car the chances of you getting to your destination safely are excellent.

A lot of people refer to losing weight as a journey. That's really a bunch of bullshit but let's go with that analogy for a moment. There's really only one way to get to any destination and that is by putting miles behind you in the only way to get to a given weight is to either add calories or subtract calories from your diet. You can do that one of two ways. You can do it by choice or by force. You can choose to eat too much or you can choose to eat the correct amount of food every day.

Think about this. You want to go from New York to Los Angeles and you can get there quickly by flying in a jet airliner or you can travel by land and that will take you over a week. You find out that one in 50 planes crash and kill everyone aboard. Are you so greedy, childish, self centered, immature and stupid that you will get aboard an aircraft and risk crashing and dying simply because it's quicker and seemingly easier? What does it say about a person who would do that? What if the airline industry lied the way the bariatric surgery industry lies and told you that only one in 200 planes crash, would you still fly?

I have outlined the mechanics of weight loss and I hope you're not too lazy to read what they are. I will quickly recap some of the highlights of how to safely lose weight and keep it off.

When you calculate your BMI and you consume that number of calories you will lose at least 1 pound per week per 100 pounds of body weight. It's called the immutable laws of physics. If you are so stupid to think that your body somehow can defy the laws of physics than go for the surgery and I hope you die idiot because you are a waste of protoplasm.

Because you are a fat in greedy glutton you want what you want when you want it. That means you have poor judgment and that means you will fall for every weight loss gimmick under the sun. The most weight that one can safely lose is 1 pound per week per 100 pounds of body weight. If you decide to go on some very low-calorie diet that you are being is irresponsible as the idiot who drives 20 miles an hour or more above the speed limit because that immature selfish piece of crap cares more about getting to his destination then he does about the other drivers on the highway. If you are trying to crash diet then you are a stupid and inconsiderate as a reckless driver.

You need to eat correctly and that means learning how to eat correctly. I've already outlined the basic and proper nutrition is. You can learn it from me or you can learn it in five minutes by googling it.

You can blame high fructose corn syrup, GMO foods, computers, TV and you can come up with even more creative excuses but none of them can circumvent the laws of physics. You don't need Dr. Oz's fat busters. What you need is a commitment to doing the right thing and if you're unwilling to do this then maybe you should go to one of these greedy and unscrupulous butchers and let them fuck you up.
Here are some diabetic amputations. Enjoy!

Think Gastric Sleeve is Safe? Think Again!

Look at these butchers operating with chopsticks.

In this barbaric procedure 3/4 of the stomach is removed. The problem with that is, we need our entire stomach for proper digestion of the proper foods. After your stomach has been butchered it can not do it necessary role in the digestive process.

The aftercare for all weight loss surgery is substandard. They will tell you that it is ok to eat right after the procedure. Complications mean more money for these thugs.

What's the death rate from Gastric Sleeve Surgery?

The industry will tell you that the death rate from gastric sleeve surgery is one in 400. That's a lie. The industry will tell you that the death rate from gastric bypass is one in 200 when the real number is one in 50 and that is just within the first 30 days. It's hard to find good data on the actual death rate but based on the industry lies a reasonable guess would be one in 100.

When a fool asks one of these butchers what the death rate is they will cite industry numbers but they will plan claim that their death rate is much lower. Chances are they are lying. That is what criminal types do.

Maybe you would be better off dead?!

Adverse Effects of Weight Loss Surgery

Complications from weight loss surgery are frequent. A study of insurance claims of 2522 who had undergone bariatric surgery showed 21.9% complications during the initial hospital stay and a total of 40% risk of complications in the subsequent six months. This was more common in those over 40 and led to an increased health care expenditure. Common problems were gastric dumping syndrome in about 20% (bloating and diarrhea after eating, necessitating small meals or medication), leaks at the surgical site (12%), incisional hernia (7%), infections (6%) and pneumonia (4%). Mortality was 0.2%.[30] As the rate of complications appears to be reduced when the procedure is performed by an experienced surgeon, guidelines recommend that surgery be performed in dedicated or experienced units.[4]

Metabolic bone disease manifesting as osteopenia and secondary hyperparathyroidism have been reported after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery due to reduced calcium absorption. The highest concentration of calcium transporters is in the duodenum. Since the ingested food will not pass through the duodenum after a bypass procedure, calcium levels in the blood may decrease, causing secondary hyperparathyroidism, increase in bone turnover, and a decrease in bone mass. Increased risk of fracture has also been linked to bariatric surgery.[31]

Rapid weight loss after obesity surgery can contribute to the development of gallstones as well by increasing the lithogenicity of bile. Adverse effects on the kidneys have been studied. Hyperoxaluria that can potentially lead to oxalate nephropathy and irreversible renal failure is the most significant abnormality seen on urine chemistry studies. Rhabdomyolysis leading to acute kidney injury, and impaired renal handling of acid and base has been reported after bypass surgery.

Nutritional derangements due to deficiencies of micronutrients like iron, vitamin B12, fat soluble vitamins, thiamine, and folate are especially common after malabsorptive bariatric procedures.

Seizures due to hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia have been reported. Inappropriate insulin secretion secondary to islet cell hyperplasia, called pancreatic nesidioblastosis, might explain this syndrome.[32]

The death rate for gastric bypass is 1 in 50!
A recent study by researchers at the University of Washington found that 1 in 50 people die within one month of having gastric bypass surgery, and that figure jumps nearly fivefold if the surgeon is inexperienced.
