Tips After Tube Stomach

Period after Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Tube Stomach; Suppressed appetite in the first 2-3 months after sleeve gastrectomy (stomach reduction) and a rapid weight loss result, especially in the first weeks of liquid nutrition. Although this period motivates the patients, the main thing is the diet after this period.

The success of tube stomach (stomach reduction) surgery depends on the patient’s adaptation to the new nutritional life as well as the surgical team. With the relatively increasing portions and appetite, especially after the 3-6 month period of the surgery, the patients both fall into fear and start a struggle with them.

This period can be overcome successfully. In this article, you will read the recommendations to get the most successful results after sleeve gastrectomy …

  1. When the first one-month standard nutrition program after tube stomach surgery is finished, a program will be created by our dieticians by calculating your calorie intake. Some foods will depend on your preference. Liquid foods leave the stomach within an average of 2-4 hours and solid foods in 6-8 hours. Choosing solid foods will suppress your mid-term hunger.
  2. We recommend that you eat a minimum of 3 main meals after sleeve gastrectomy and snacks so that you will not be hungry for more than 4 hours.
  3. Remove carbohydrates from your life as much as possible.
  4. After sleeve gastrectomy, your main food should be proteins. You can get support with ready-made protein products for the first 4 weeks after surgery. The minimum amount of protein you will take daily should be 90 grams. You can meet this amount from very comfortable foods 1 month after your operation. In short; You should have a quality diet after surgery. You can fill your shrunken stomach with 2 meatballs or 1-2 slices of pizza. If you prefer pizza instead of meatballs, no surgery will make you reach your ideal weight.
  5. The first postoperative periods will be rapid weight loss. After a certain period of time, the body will come to a balance and even if less calorie intake continues, weight loss will not be like the first months. During this period, integrate physical exercise and sports into your life. Ideally, by exercising for 45 minutes, 3-4 days a week, you will ensure the continuation of weight loss and minimize skin deformations caused by weight loss….
