The dietary program after the surgery
You will lose most of the excess weight within the first year of the surgery.
But you need to keep your new eating habits to avoid going back to your old weight.
Physical and sexual activities post surgery
The first month after the operation, you can play sports like bike riding, dancing, swimming or going to the gym
There is no warning about sex after the operation, but preferably wait for at least 2 weeks to insure there is no pain.
The chances of pregnancy increase after the surgery so pay better attention to the contraception methods and the effect of the contraception pill after the bypass surgery become less reliable.
It is also important to avoid pregnancy for one year after the surgery to prevent any health complications for the mother and baby.
Lower movement of the intestines for the first month after the operation causes constipation. You can take laxatives when needed and drink plenty of water. It will become better as you start eating solid foods. Consult your doctor if the constipation lasts after 7 continuous days or if you don’t feel better after taking laxatives.
If you have stool over 3 times daily consult your doctor and you need to compensate by drinking plenty of liquids, especially water. After the mini bypass surgery the likelihood of having a diarea or constipation is high and the intestines need some time to adjust to the new situation and to avoid these problems lessen your intake of fatty foods and deserts.
To avoid this, split you meals; eat smaller and more frequently
Especially for the first 6 months after the operation you might suffer from hair loss, but your hair will grow back to normal after as you stick to your dietary routine and eat enough protein. If hair loss continues 8 months after the surgery refer to your nutritional specialist as this signals lack in protein consumptions or vitamins
