Bariatric Surgery Risks

Vitamins & Supplements

When you are being considered for weight loss surgery, your doctor will take a look at whether or not you understand the bariatric surgery risks and you are willing to accept those risks. Almost everyone that has weight loss surgery will experience some difficulty after surgery. It is not easy on your system and your way of eating and living will change drastically overnight. 

So, what are some of the bariatric surgery risks you should be aware of before you talk to your doctor? Consider the following.

  1. Infection at the incision area.
  2. Pulmonary embolism (a blood flow blockage in the lungs).
  3. Peritonitis - this is a common problem caused by weight loss surgery. This is when there is a leak from the stomach into another part of the body.
    • Dumping - this is very common and happens when food moves too fast through the stomach after eating.
    • Lose staples
    • Stomal Stenois - this is a narrowing of the link between the intestines and the stomach.
