Life After a Gastric Sleeve

Mr Periyathambi Jambulingam
Mr Jambulingam, Consultant Surgeon

A gastric sleeve is a life-changing operation that requires dietetic, behavioural, and exercise changes to ones lifestyle in order to facilitate the long-term success that patients and doctors are looking for. With a reduction of around 80% of the stomach, the surgery itself enables relatively quick and sustainable weight loss in obese patients. This does mean, however, that patients need to be prepared for the idea that they should not approach their diet or eating in the same way as before. Likewise, patients will need to a variety of supplements and multivitamins for life.

After around two or three weeks a gastric sleeve patient should be able to return to work, with a full recovery being made around six to eight weeks. Patients can start exercising regularly a few weeks after surgery.

When it comes to gastric sleeve surgery it is important to keep in mind where it is you started. The 70% average excess body weight loss achieved is done so over a 2 year period. Being able to own the process and responsibility of keeping up with your supplements, exercises, and general wellbeing is key to getting the most out of the surgery itself. Just like the gastric balloon tool, the gastric sleeve requires your commitment to improving your quality of life in order to sustain long-term success.

To be eligible for a gastric sleeve a prospective patient must have a BMI of at least 35, or above 30 with two or more comorbidities such as high cholesterol. Speak with a member of the team to learn more.
