Bariatric surgery is a surgical procedure that is ultimately aimed at reducing the size of an individual's stomach in order to reduce caloric intake. When successful, the surgery is viewed as a blessing, causing obese individuals to lose many pounds of unwanted fat. The surgery, which comes in various forms, has become more popular over the past decade primarily because insurance companies have become more apt to pay for the procedure.

However, many people are unaware that the success rate of the surgery, when compared to that of other surgeries, is very poor. Leaking of gastrointestinal juices from the surgical connections can lead to serious infection, abscess, peritonitis and death.

In addition to gastric bypass surgery leaks, the most common cause of death is pulmonary emboli (clot), respiratory (breathing) failure, and gastric dilatation (abnormal enlargement). Common gastric bypass postoperative problems include infection and opening of the skin suture line, small bowel obstruction, kidney problems, gallstones, nausea and vomiting, hernia, and electrolyte and vitamin imbalances.

By the second day after gastric bypass surgery pain should be greatly diminished or absent. If there is worsening pain, or back pain, or left shoulder pain, or excessive urination, or breathing difficulty, or significant anxiety, you should consult your surgeon immediately.

If you feel that you have been a victim of malpractice related to a gastric bypass surgery, please contact me immediately. Even more than in other cases, time is critical in regards to these specific claims. I have handled a number of these cases from all across the country.
