Gastric Sleeve in Turkey

What is Gastric Sleeve?

Turkey has an extremely successful healthcare sector. Most people living in different nations pick Turkey for their health problems because its prices in the field of health are both more affordable and have far more successful doctors than in other countries. To offer one example, gastric sleeve surgery is quite successful in Turkey. Surgeons in Turkey undertake extremely successful surgeries on all of their patients, both domestic and international.
The procedure of eliminating a person's stomach tissue is known as a gastric sleeve. It is a surgical procedure used to avoid obesity, which has a significant impact on a person's health and living conditions. Following the surgery, a tube is constructed in the person's stomach, causing the person to eat less and reduce the sensation of intense hunger. The person's nutritional life alters drastically after the surgery. Because it is a serious surgery, an experienced surgeon should perform it.

Before Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Care should be taken before undergoing gastric sleeve surgery, just as with any other surgery. Before undergoing a gastric sleeve surgery, the patient is submitted to a series of examinations by his doctor. Vitamin and mineral values, blood tests, cardiological tests, radiography, and pulmonary function tests are performed on the patient. The main goal is to see if the patient is a suitable candidate for the surgery.
Aside from that, the patient should alter his or her eating habits before the surgery. Following the completion of all tests, a particular nutrition program is developed for the patient. A surgeon and a specialist nutritionist aid the patient during this process. The patient first gets a body analysis and gives the doctor the results of the BMI and fat ratio. The patient should be provided with protein weight before the surgery. Fresh vegetables should also be consumed.
If the patient is not on a special diet, he or she should eat nutritious meals and avoid alcohol and cigarettes for at least one week before the procedure. This is critical for an efficient surgery. After the surgery, symptoms such as gastrointestinal pain, gas, and bloating can be avoided if the patient consumes healthier and easier-to-digest foods.

After Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Many people who are considering having a gastric sleeve surgery are curious about the recovery period. Primarily, the patient must adhere to the doctor's instructions both before and after the procedure. The patient should stay in the hospital for three days following the gastric sleeve procedure. During this monitoring period, the patient is solely fed serum for two days.
After three days, the patient has a tomography to establish whether there is an issue with his or her stomach. If there are no complications, the patient is released from the hospital after a few days. Before discharge, the attending physician and specialist nutritionist will provide the patient with feeding instructions.

Gastric Sleeve Healing Process

Although the surgery is critical, the healing period is equally so. The patient should consume soft and watery foods. Protein-rich foods should also be consumed. Food should be eaten thoroughly; the patient should not eat too quickly. He or she should chew the food thoroughly. The patient should not resume his or her previous eating habits after a sleeve gastrectomy. The patient may regain weight in this instance. Healthy foods should be eaten and consult your doctor and dietician if something happens.
