Dr. Dahiya describes how long it takes a patient to recover from an incisionless bariatric surgery.
We are basically just talking about this, the revision of the pouch, and that is in and out. You come in; it’s just like people know what upper endoscopy is. It’s just like that procedure. It is under anesthesia, but you have it done, and most of the time, unless you have little issue with the nausea or something, you go home the same day.
And all of a sudden, you know, you realize that the restriction that you didn’t have before that you were able to eat and no problem, and all of a sudden, you realize that you, again, even the liquids when you take, they tell you that, “Hey, your pouch is smaller so let’s eat less.”
