Weight loss surgery or Bariatric surgery helps keep the flab away for years. But you need to work out also to remain in perfect shape

A team of researchers at the University of Utah School of Medicine has found that the results of bariatric surgery may last for years. The study, which was conducted among a number patients, has discovered that the demand for weight loss surgery is on the raise. The results proved that people who underwent weight loss surgery remained in good shape for years. “It’s been somewhat in question how durable the weight loss might be,” says Ted Adams, who led the study.

bariatric surgery is highly recommended for obesity in many parts of the world. The surgery is said to have lots of critical after-effects as well. However, the recent study gives us hope regarding its longstanding results. Anyway, here we take a look into the major side effects of the surgery. Obesity is a threatening morbidity for people today. Obese people are disturbed of their physical condition and resultant difficulties. These days, many patients rely on the complicated gastric bypass surgery to treat obesity.

But, besides having several advantages, bariatric surgery also has many fatal difficulties. See, your body mass may distract quickly following the surgery. As well, obesity related diseases like diabetes, sleep apnea and blood pressure may get cured at once. Well, bariatric surgery puts several disturbing restrictions and food limitations over the patient. Further, potential chance for weight regain lurks as the biggest threat. Here are some reasons of which the surgery for obesity may continue dangerous to all.

A Major Surgery With Fatal Aftereffects: bariatric surgery is a major surgery. Simply, it is a complicated clinical process of splitting the patient’s stomach into a tiny upper pouch and a large pouch in the lower part. Small intestine needs a re-arrangement to connect with the upper and lower pouches. Surgeons have formed different methods of gastric bypass procedure with its major goal being to altering physical and physiological response to food items. In other words, it is a very intricate medical operation that needs much care during the process and afterward. Otherwise, possibility for death or other fatal conditions is high.

Lethal Health Disorders: There are many post-surgical complications for gastric surgery. Only few patients can lead a happy and comfortable life after the surgery. Studies have divulged that chance for potentially fatal hypoglycemia or low blood glucose is high in patients, who underwent the clinical procedure for weight loss. Due to high levels of insulin, those patients may face blackouts at unexpected occasions. A blackout during driving will result in automobile collisions and other tragedies. This health disorder can’t be cured with medications, because the patient’s body may not respond to them. The only remedy will be complete or partial removal of pancreas in order to trim down insulin production.

Malnutrition and Infection: It is now a big concern that gastric bypass may cause permanent malnutrition and infections. This major surgery may also hunt a patient in form of bowel and gallbladder issues. The operation may also be a dangerous shock for the entire body of patients, especially the aged ones. To treat these health disorders, patients will have to take lifelong vitamin and mineral supplementations. Patients will always be suffering from some diseases due to infections. Increased care is a must for a patient, who will have to endure huge costs for regular medical consultations and medications after the surgery.

Lifelong Change to Lifestyle and Diet: Bariatric surgery is not anyway a quick fix to obesity. It is just a start of a long process that requires a whole change in your lifestyle. Well, after gastric surgery, surgeons will restrict your lifestyle completely. You can only live as per the restrictions laid by the surgeon. You will have to compromise with a set of conditions in sleeping, dieting, exercising and others. For positive response of the body, patients will have to avoid many of their favorite food items. Surgeons also direct for continuous workouts and restricted hours of sleep and others.

Other Consequences: If a patient breaks diet controls after gastric surgery, results will be bad. For example, if a patient takes in sugar foods, he/she may suffer from nausea, diarrhea, influx and other health problems. Moreover, gastric surgery may result in hair loss. There is a report that hair loss among the post-surgical patients is high. To top it all, due to constant health issues, patients will have to spend much on hospital bills every month after the surgery.
