Blockage after gastric bypass
Gastric bypass surgery involves rerouting of the intestines. The most common reason for a small bowel obstruction or "blockage" is an internal hernia. Other causes could be wound hernias, adhesions or scar tissue, or something called intussusception. It is very important to follow-up with your bariatric surgeon if you are having any abdominal symptoms after bariatric surgery becuase they are most in tune with needs and potentail complications after gastric bypass surgery.
