Mrs. Rizwana Khot underwent a laparoscopic banded Roux en y gastric bypass surgery in 2016. She lost weight and gained confidence. In this video she speaks about her weight-loss journey. Laparoscopic banded Roux en y gastric bypass is a weight loss procedure in which a silicon band is placed on the stomach pouch. This is done mainly to prevent enlargement of the pouch and that helps to prevent weight regain in the long run. It helps to maintain the restriction and limit oral intake. This bariatric surgery procedure has shown better weight loss as well as better long-term weight maintenance. However, the flip side is that it has a complication rate of 2 to 2.5%. The silicon band/ring can sometimes erode into the stomach pouch or slip, leading to vomiting and other complications. It is important to follow up regularly and have an annual upper GI endoscopy.
