The following sets out the key milestones in the pathway which leads up to and beyond surgery – the Patient Care Pathway.
Initial physician consultation
The purpose of this initial physician consultation is to assess your eligibility for obesity surgery and (more specifically) which of the available procedures would be the most suitable. The consultation will cover your medical and surgical history, lifestyle, current medication and weight history. The surgical procedure, together with the risks and benefits will be covered in detail.
8-weeks post-operative nutrition
On leaving hospital you will begin your 8-week post- operative diet consisting of 3-weeks fluids, 3-weeks puréed food and 2 weeks small amounts of normal food. You will be given detailed dietary instructions to follow for this period. Each week you will speak to our bariatric nurse or health educator by telephone.
