Mixed with gastric juice in the stomach, the food undergoes chemical and mechanical transformations to ensure optimal digestion. Later, they are progressively propelled intestine. In addition, numerous unwanted bacteria that reach this level with nutrition are destroyed under the action of gastric acid juice. Our specialist, Dr Bianca Istratie, explained to the office what happens with the stomach when it intervenes surgically.

"Early postoperative complications occur in the first month of surgery and are generally in surgical technique (postoperative haemorrhage, suture dilation, fistulae, gastric emptying). Patients may experience premature post-meal manifestations (early dumping syndrome) which is manifested by abdominal pain or cramps, diarrhea, flushing, palpitations, sweating, feeling dizzy, symptoms that occur 30 minutes after a meal. The following hygienic-diet measures are recommended: small, fractional meals, rich in solid foods and low in carbohydrates (sugars, sweets, sweet milk, fruits). Immediately after the meal, it is advisable for the patient to lie down to slow gastric emptying. Mean meal manifestations (late dumping syndrome) that occur through hypoglycemia at 2-3 hours after meals may also occur. Manifestations occur especially after meals rich in carbohydrates and consist of weakness, dizziness, sweating, trembling, confusion. Disorders stop after candy ingestion. For prevention it is recommended to reduce carbohydrate consumption. "
