  • In the first week after the surgery, only you need to consume liquids
  • In week 2 - 4, you can consume food in same quantities (100g) & frequencies (4 to 5 times a day) as mentioned.
  • In week 4 to 6, you can consume soft food.
  • After 6weeks, slowly resume eatinga healthy diet.
  • Initially, you need to avoid consuming food with high sugar content, like chocolate, cakes, sweets & biscuits. This is because the bypass affectshow to digest the sugar, &any sugar which you are consuming will also trigger the body to produce high amount of insulin. The excessive amount of the insulin may also cause number of unpleasant symptoms which are collectively called as dumping syndrome. Symptoms of the dumping syndrome includes: diarrhea, nausea, abdominal (tummy) pain and light-headedness
  • Secondly, you need to take daily vitamin & mineral supplements, as the small intestine will no longer be able to digest all type of the vitamins & minerals ther body needs from the diet. The dosage & type of the supplements may differ from case to case, but most the people are required to take:
    • A multivitamin supplement, contains combination of different type of vitamins
    • A calcium supplement (the body will requires calcium to maintain the healthy bones)
    • An iron supplement
