Simon Ghosh – Case Report

We present an unusual and rare complication caused by gastric band erosion into the stomach after band placement 15 years ago. The complication was only picked up after the band had subsequently migrated from the stomach at the site of erosion, to the distal ileum causing acute small bowel obstruction and focal perforation requiring emergency laparotomy. Abdominal pain in patients with gastric band should always be treated as serious until proven otherwise. Check out the report here: Case Report – eroded gastric band

Obesity & BMI

There are many health risks associated with obesity.
A patient is deemed obese if they have a BMI of 30+.
There are many factors contributing to obesity and it’s important to note that it is a medical condition.
Even with a small amount of weight loss some of these risks are reduced but it important to talk to your GP if your weight is affecting your health. There are lots of options and surgery might be one of them.
Our team are happy to chat to you and support you in any way.

Stay Hydrated

Staying hydrated is essential after weight loss surgery.

However, due to the reduced stomach size, we suggest patients to sip water throughout the day rather than drink larger glasses as it can affect the appetite.

One of the top tips we share is to carry a water bottle at all times and sip regularly.
