Candidates for bariatric surgery have a few procedure options. The most effective is the Roux-en-Y surgery (Thirlby,M.D.; Journal of Gastrointestinal Surgery). This surgery utilizes stapling a portion of the stomach to reduce the size dramatically. A portion of the small intestine is bypassed in this surgery to reduce the number of calories that the body absorbs during normal digestion.

This requires a permanent lifestyle change. If a person eats or drinks more than the pouch can hold, vomiting or “dumping” can occur. Dumping is a term used to describe the symptoms that occur when the post-op patient has over eaten. The symptoms include nausea, cramping, diarrhea, sweating, and vomiting.
