How Does Gastric Sleeve Perform?
Laparoscopic Gastric Sleeve operation is performed by removing %75 of the stomach to create a banana shaped pouch. The pouch then connects directly to the small intestine. The pouch is stapled, and the rest of the stomach is taken.
How Long does Sleeve Gastrectomy Take?
The operation only takes less than an hour. But be prepared to stay in the hospital few more days because of the pre-operative checks and postoperative observation. However, on the day of the operation, the recovery will require an overnight stay in the Hospital.
How Long will the hospital stay?
You can leave the hospital within 24-48 hours of your procedure. This means staying 2/3 nights in the Hospital.
Because everyone's healing time is different, and the surgery can differ for each person depending on a patient's medical history.
You will be allowed home when the doctor gives the final approval.
How Soon will I be Able to Walk?
Usually, on the same day of your procedure, you will be able to walk. We encourage the patients to do so. Little walking will prevent the problems like blood clots and chest infections.
We will be helping you to do the shopping, lifting and transport for the first few days.
How Soon Can I Return to Exercise?
Just after the surgery, you can begin walking. However, for more active exercises, maybe rest for 2-3 weeks and gradually increase physical activity. Getting a minimum of 30 minutes of exercise each day is recommended and will help you to lose weight quicker.
