Intestinal Function

Some patients suffer from severe flatulence and constipation immediately after the operation-especially during the liquid diet.This is partly because reduced food intake leads to less waste, and partly because the fibre content of the food is lower.It is therefore normal that the number of visits to the toilet decreases.It is also important to make sure that your fluid intake is sufficient. It is normal to see blood in your stool within the first week after the operation.After the operation,many people experience excessive growling in the bowel,and it is also normal for the amount of gas and gas excretion in the bowel to increase.


Some patients feel slightly weakened and tired after the operation.While many patients experience this,they also find that this does not worsen when they eat. In addition,some patients may feel a stabbing pain on the left side.There are not dangeraous and in most cases disappear within a few months.You should bear in mind that you are sensitive to cold during weight loss.

Constipation Of Food

If you eat too large pieces of food or large quantities,there is a risk that these foods will clog the stomach.This condition causes pain and vomiting.The food almost always goes by itself and this discomfort disappears.

Hair loss

Some patients experience increased hair loss in the first 4 to 8 months after the operation. However, this situation is never serious enough to lead to baldness,and hair growth returns to normal afterwards. Hair loss is generally due to a low calorie and protein intake.


If you feel pain or vomit when you eat,it is because you are eating too much or too fast.Eat calmly and quietly and learn to pay attention to signals from your stomach. Stop eating before you feel bad,have pain or vomit.If you vomit regularly,this is a warning sign.This can be caused by bad eating habits or,rarely, by the fact that the exit from your stomach pocket it too narrow and may require surgery. If you vomit frequently, you should discuss this with your contact person,patient advisor. You should remember that a normal stomach infection with vomiting can cause the same symptoms and require the same precautions.

Possible Complications

Some complications can occur in anyone who is operated on. Even if the risk is small, it is always present. It should be noted that some patients experience complications during major operation such as sleeve gastrectomy operation. Complications after a sleeve gastrectomy operation can be divided into two categories. The first is the complications that can occur after surgery and the second is the complications that are specific to this type of operation.

General Complications

General complications in connection with the operation can be wound infection, blood collection in the wound,coagulation,pneumonia, urinary tract infection etc. It should be noted that the percentage of patients who experience these complications is one to two percent. Such complications are usally successfully treated and rarely lead to permanent damage. The most common complication, which occurs particularly after open operation,is the formation of a hernia in the surgical wound. This situation rarely occurs. The inguinal hernia is usually removed by operation.

Specific Complications

The most common complication in sleeve gastrectomy operation is the leakage of gastric stitches. Leaks are a serious complication and usually require immediate re-operation. The incidence of this situation is between 0.5 - 1%. Leakage often causes longterm problems that may require several weeks of hospitalisation and the use of antibiotics. Common complications after sleeve gastrectomy operation are abdominal pain and malnutrition. Abdominal pain can be temporary and is caused by increased intestinal gas and a tendency to constipation during eating. However, the cause of this pain can also be gallstones, suturing constriction, intestinal obstruction and stomach ulcer. These conditions generally require -acute- treatment. For this reason, you should react if other severe acute pain is present. If you do not have an acute condition, you can consult your family doctor or you can consult us if you come forone of your examinations. For this reason you should consider this if other severe acute pain occurs. If you do not have an acute illness, you can consult your family doctor or you can consult us during your check-ups. Stomach ulcers can be caused by prolonged use of medicines containing acetylsalicylic acid (e.g. Magnyl, Idotyl, Kodimagnyl, Hjertemagnyl) or arthritis medicines (e.g. Brufen, Ipren, Confortid, Voltaren, Naprosyn, Diclon). The operation helps with a large and long-term weight loss. However, weight loss is not onlyrelated to the operation, but also depends on your exertion after the operation. There are situationswhere sufficient weight loss cannot be achieved, but these are very rare. The average weight loss is slightly more than 80% of overweight. Fatal complications are extremely rare and occur in about 0.5 to 1 in every 1000 operations.
