How much time does gastric bypass take and what is the recovery period?

Gastric bypass surgery divides the stomach into two sections; a small pouch is created by using staples and this is where all the food goes. The other part of the stomach is left alone. The small pouch is connected to the small intestine directly. As the main part where the food you eat goes is small, you can eat less and still feel full. This enables you to lose weight very fast without feeling deprived.

Usually laparoscopic surgical methods are used to create the bypass and this shortens recovery time. The surgery, too, gets over much faster and you will need to stay only one or two nights in hospital for efficient monitoring. If there is a problem reaching the stomach only then the open surgical method is used. Total recovery time varies between two and three weeks. You will be on liquid diet for some time and then soft foods and then gradually move to proper foods. But you will need to eat often as you can eat very little at a time.

What is the cost of gastric bypass in Cabo San Lucas?

The cost of the surgery in the U.S. and Canada varies from place to place and even doctor to doctor. It can vary from a low of US$ 15,000 to a high of US$ 35,000. In Cabo San Lucas prices start at an average of US$ 2,500, a very affordable rate without compromising on the quality of medical care.
