Gastric Bypass In this operation the stomach is divided into two compartments with several rows of titanium staples. The newly created stomach pouch is measured at less than 30 ccs. The small intestine is then divided in the proximal jejunum and the lower end brought up and joined to the new small stomach compartment. The pouch initially holds about 1 ounce of food and expands to 2-3 ounces with time. The pouchs lower outlet usually has a diameter of about 1/2-inch. The small outlet delays the emptying of food from the pouch and causes a feeling of fullness. After an operation, the person usually can eat only 5 to 10 bites of food before feeling full. With time, the capacity may increase to half to a whole cup of food that may be consumed without discomfort or nausea. Food has to be well chewed. For most people, the ability to eat a large amount of food at one time is lost, and some of the food consumed will not be absorbed due to the bypass segment of the operation. Read More
