In medical terms, weight-loss surgery is also called "bariatric surgery." Various weight-reducing surgical procedures are available, but they all help by limiting the amount of food you can eat. The shape and function of your digestive system are altered as a result of weight loss surgery and some procedures also restrict the number of nutrients that can be absorbed. This surgery can help you lose weight and manage obesity-related medical conditions. Diabetes, obstructive sleep apnea and risk factors for heart disease and stroke are among these conditions.

Weight Loss Surgery Recovery

Bariatric surgery is mostly done through a laparoscopic procedure. Laparoscopic surgery usually requires only small cuts through which the procedure is performed. These small cuts take a shorter period of time to recover as compared to the large incisions made in the other surgery procedures. Patients are usually required to stay in the hospital for maximum 2 to 3 days and get back to normal activities within 3 to 5 weeks. However, surgeons strongly advise the patients to not take part in any heavy or exerting activity for three to six weeks after surgery. Following are the tips to recover quickly from bariatric surgery

  • Avoid lifting weights that are heavier than 20 to 30 pounds. Do not do push or pull motions in the first six weeks of treatment.
  • Increase your fluid intake. This surgery might make you feel tired, weak, nauseated or you may even experience  vomiting in the first few weeks. Doctors recommend you to take at least 1.5 to 2 liters of water each day.
  • Take vitamins and supplements regularly, eat a healthy diet, and make sure to see your doctor for follow-up appointments.
