Missouri • Kansas • Southern Illinois
About 9 million U.S. citizens are considered morbidly obese. The obesity epidemic in the United States has led to an increase in the number of gastric bypass surgeries performed in our nation’s hospitals. In 2006 alone, about 175,000 people opted to undergo gastric bypass surgery .
Despite the popularity of the surgery, the fact remains that 40% of gastric bypass patients develop a complication within 6 months of surgery . These complications include:
- Pulmonary emboli (blood clot in the lungs)
- Respiratory failure
- Kidney problems
- Bowel obstruction
- Excessive pain after surgery.
- Gastrointestinal leakage
- Other complications resulting in death.
Sometimes, patients were not educated about all of the risks associated with a gastric bypass surgery. Others were not given proper instructions for post-operative care.
