Gastric Bypass Surgery > After the Procedure Post Operative Care

The nasogastric tube is removed at the end of the procedure.

A water-soluble contrast examination is performed on day 1 to confirm the absence of anastomotic leakage. If the examination reveals no anomalies, the patient is allowed to drink water.

From day 2 to day 9, the patient remains on a liquid diet. During the 3 weeks following surgery, food must be soft or chopped. After these 3 weeks, the patient may progressively start consuming small bites of food. The patient consults a dietician before discharge and 3 weeks after surgery.

The patient can leave the hospital on or after day 3 after surgery. Follow-up is performed 1 week after discharge, when sutures or clips are removed.
