Three common surgical procedures for people wishing to lose weight include Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, billiopancreatic diversion/duodenal switch, and stomach banding via laparoscopy. The operations range from $17,000 to $35,000 and can involve a hospital stay from 1 day to 4. The complications of surgery can include death, and improper absorption of food leading to malnutrition, anemia, osteoporosis, gallstones and higher risk of infections. Symptoms can be unpleasant, such as diarrhea, flatulence, abdominal pain and cramping, nausea, vomiting, and fatigue. However, achieving drastic weight loss within a year is achievable, as is reversing obesity related diabetes and hypertension.
