If the doctor finds a small polyp, it is removed during the screening. But if the growth is a bigger one, doctors usually take out cells for a biopsy. Depending on the result one must get treated accordingly. One can go ten years without screening if nothing is found. Obesity has become a problem worldwide. Our lifestyle has made us inactive enough to sit at the desk all day long. Along with that wrong food habit and wrong choice of food has led us to being obese. Obesity does come accompanied with some other problems due to which obese people are constantly facing different health problems. That is why it is necessary to treat obesity first to get rid of many other problems. In this article, we are going to talk about a surgical process that treats obesity.
Gastric bypass in Lismore is a process that changes the way stomach and small intestine manage the food to help you lose weight. In this process, the stomach is made smaller. Food will not reach some parts where it is absorbed. So, after the surgery you will feel full with less food and your body will get fewer calories. As a result you will start to lose weight. This process is a popular bariatric surgery process.
Two steps of the surgery:
Just like colonoscopy you will be on medication that will make you sleep during the whole process. This surgery has two parts. In the very first part, the doctor will divide your stomach into a large lower one and a smaller upper one. After the surgery the food will go to this small upper part that contains only 28 grams of food. This will make you eat smaller portions as you will have little space in your stomach. The bypass is the second step. Your surgeon will connect a small portion of the jejunum or small intestine to the small part of the stomach. Food will go to this smaller opening of jejunum through the stomach. So, you will absorb lesser calories.
Open surgery and laparoscope:
This surgery can be done in two ways. One is a laparoscopic surgery while the other is an open one. In the open surgery, the doctor makes a big cut to work on organs, like stomach and small intestine. In the laparoscopic surgery, 4 to 6 cuts are made in the belly and these cuts are small enough to insert the scope and other equipment. A tiny camera called, laparoscope, is inserted into the belly which makes the surgeon able to view inside the belly during the process.
