Sure you can take the pills. They do contribute to gall stone formation, but now that you already have them not taking pills will not help. Please get a lap chole as soon as possible.

To loose weight one has to persist with a drastic reduction in the intake of carbohydrates, (specially refined sugars) and fats, increase the intake of proteins and increase the expenditure of energy by regular exercise. Starving ones self does not work for any length of time and three meals at regular times, eaten slowly is the best method. Avoid snacking between meals, have a good breakfast, moderate lunch and a light dinner. The foods to avoid are sugars, or anything that contains sugar and fat such as bakery products, ice creams, desserts, fried foods (like pranthe, pakore, puris) pizza and potatoes. Rice can be replaced with two chapattis made of multi grain atta. To fill your stomach one should take lots of fruits (papaya, apples, guava) and green vegetables (cucumber, ghia, laoki, teenda, and tori) and sprouted dal. Milk should be double toned. Your protein intake should be increased by taking egg white, grilled / steamed fish or chicken made in small amounts of olive / sunflower oil. Vegetarians can use soya bean dal, nutri nuggets, tofu and cottage cheese made from double tone milk. Go for a run or walk for an hour every day.

Diet after Weight loss (Bariatric) Surgery

Post Doctoral Fellowship in G I Surgery, MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Panchkula
Recovery after Weight Loss Surgery

To let your stomach heal, you will be advised a liquid diet as it isn’t advisable for you to eat for the first few days following bariatric surgery. You will very slowly transition back to solid foods. Your calorie consumption will be much less of what it used to be, and your diet will be completely different. It typically takes patients anywhere from two to six weeks to start feeling balanced and back to normal again.

It is also important that you drink approx (about 6-8 glasses) 1.5 – 2 L per day, as it's important that you remain well hydrated... YOU MUST DRINK FLUIDS, not just water. If you only drink water, you may develop electrolyte abnormalities. Keep the drink next to you and sip it slowly with a straw every 15 to 20 minutes.

Diet plan after Weight Loss Surgery: Generally, the diet pattern advised is: -

Weeks 1 & 2 – liquid diet - Oral rehydration fluid ORS (Electral or Walyte) lemon water, musambi juice, cocoanut water, unsweetened, green / herbal tea, clear dal / veg / chicken soup, khichdi / rice water, dilute lassi made of double toned milk, Glucerna SR, (the taste can be improved by adding a few drops of rose water or some Elaich powder), Protienex in double toned Milk.

Weeks 3 & 4 – semi solid diet – Should be of sauce consistency, something which doesn’t need to be chewed eg Dalia, Patli Khichri, Peeli moong dal, Curd rice, Milk dalia, Milk suji, custard.

Weeks 5 & 6 – soft solid diet - like Veg upma, Veg dalia, wheatflakes in milk, oatmeal, egg white, well cooked vegetables like lauki, tori, kaddu, Dals, Veg Raita

Week 7 onwards – normal diet (with necessary restrictions) chewed well and eaten slowly

Keeping a food diary is useful because it aids as a monitoring guide of the food intake to the patient. About 1200 calories and 60 to 70 g of protein should be the goal once the patient reaches the normal diet phase. Healthy eating for weight loss surgery patients has two angles… what you eat and how you eat.
In general, there are 7 food principles to live by:

1. Eat healthy
Fresh fruits and vegetables, such as Papaya, Melons, Apples, Cucumber, Ghia / Lauki, Tori, Tinda, Spinnach, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Tomatoes, Sprouts in curd, Raita with Lauki / Cucumber

2. Protein first Protein is one of the most important nutrients for your body, and you need 60 to 80 grams a day in order to stay healthy.
(Egg white, Steamed fish / Chicken, Chicken soup, Soya bean dal, Nutri nuggets, Tofu, Cottage cheese made from double toned milk,

3. Keep your blood sugar stable – by eating on time 3 - 4 times a day at 6 to 8 hr intervals

4. Drink the right amount of water at the right times

5. Don’t snack

6. Be religious about taking your Vitamins, Calcium and iron supplements

7. How you eat is as important as what you eat;

Stop eating before you feel full to avoid vomiting, diarrhea, constipation and difficulty in swallowing and to prevent stomach stretching and weight regain.

Eat slowly and chew your food thoroughly

Do not drink during meals or up to an hour afterwards

Eating healthy means that your diet should consist primarily of FOG foods…

What NOT to eat

The following foods should be eliminated from your diet forever…
Sugar, sugar-containing foods and concentrated sweets
Fruit juices
High-saturated fat, processed cheese,
Fried foods

Foods that may give you problems.
Carbonated beverages, White bread containing maida, Pasta, Rice, Red meat, Cashew / Pea Nuts, Popcorn, foods high in fibre (Guava, Pears etc)
Caffeine and Alcohol is best abstained from

How you prepare your food is as important as what you buy…
When cooking, bake, grill, poach or broil………….don’t fry.
Use low fat (skimmed / double toned) milk instead of whole milk.
Use chicken or vegetable broth instead of oil, replace oil in recipes with curd.
Add spices or lemon juice to add flavour instead of olive oil or butter.

Side Effects after Bariatric Surgery

Nausea or vomiting is common within the first few months following weight loss surgery.

How you eat is as important as what you eat when it comes to preventing nausea and vomiting. Avoid eating and drinking too quickly or too much, take small bites and chew your food thoroughly. Do not drink any liquids during your meals or within an hour afterwards. This can flush your meals through your new stomach which can cause you to eat more and contribute to malabsorption and dumping syndrome.

Body aches – should pass with time. If they become too uncomfortable, talk with your doctor about which pain relievers are safe. You should avoid NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) such as Brufen or Combiflam.

Feeling weak, tired or cold – should also pass with time, especially once your new bariatric diet is in place and, as soon as you are feeling up to it, your exercise program has begun

Constipation – drinking more fluids, eating fibrous foods or taking fiber supplements and moving around regularly should help.

Diarrhea or loose stools - Is usually caused by intake of food not being cooked or stored hygienically, or as part of Dumping Syndrome. Introduce one new item at one time so that the offending item can be identified.

Dumping Syndrome, especially after gastric bypass, is caused by rapid emptying of your stomach after a meal. This happens if water is drunk with or soon after meals OR of you have consumed high caloric drink / food. Symptoms include weakness, dizziness, flushing and warmth, nausea and palpitation and diarrhoea immediately or shortly after eating. If you don't adopt the right habits, this problem can continue over the long-term.

Your emotional state may also be a little shaky immediately following surgery. It’s common for patients to feel scared, uncertain or moody due to hormonal changes and to the emotional effects of adjusting to a new life after weight loss surgery.

Skin changes such as acne or dry skin occur with some patients. The right bariatric diet and bariatric vitamins are your best defence. There are also many over the counter creams and lotions that can help. Worst case, partner with your dermatologist to find a treatment that works.

Hair loss – this can be an alarming side effect of rapid weight loss, but it is only temporary. It happens in about half of all patients in the year following surgery. Proper nutrition is the best prevention, specially ensuring adequate protein and the right bariatric vitamins. Several other treatments can also help, including the application of special shampoos, flax seed oil, biotin tablets or powder.

In order to maintain your weight loss and health improvement after weight loss surgery, you'll need to develop proper long-term diet and exercise habits. Otherwise, you will gain your weight back.

My mother is of 38 years. She was diagnosed with gall stone 6 months ago. She is quite scared of operation thus she decided to go for alternative method of curing gall stones.By the methods the gall stone which was initially of 19 mm became of 14 mm yhen after sometime it again increased to 19 mm. Last time when we had done her ultrasound. It showed gallstone of 16 mm. Please tell me how to remove gall stone without going through operation.

There is no such option available. There is nothing to get scared about surgery. It is a routine procedure done by laparoscopy, and quite painless. For more details please read my health tips on this website.

I am a 41 year old man of short height (5ft 3. I am highly overweight. My weight is 81 kilos. I am not obese, but majority of my weight comes from my paunch, which is abnormally inflated. I went on a crash diet 3 months and reduced my weight from 81 to 65 kilos. But, due to my nature of work which requires me to sit long hours with absolute no exercise, I have regained the weight to 81 kilos only. I have problems in getting up from seat, from bed or any inclined position to straight posture or stand. My knees & ankles also pain due to this overload of weight whenever I try moving. My lifestyle, is get up by 7-7.30 am, going to my office in a cab, (avoid buses in rush hour), sitting entire 8-10hrs in office, come back home by 8-9pm by cab again. Have my dinner (either oats or maggi, I strictly avoid rice) at 11.30pm-12 midnight. I am a non-alcoholic, but a heavy smoker (40-50 sticks/day) and take about 15-18 large mug full of black tea, throughout the day. I am also a non-diabetic. Please advise me how to reduce my paunch and hence my weight, without exercise (as I don't have any time for exercise. Waiting for your reply. Thanks.

What is Laparoscopic surgery?
Laparoscopic surgery, also called minimally invasive or keyhole surgery should really be called Minimal Access Surgery. It is a specialized surgical technique in which operations in the abdomen are performed through ports introduced into small incisions of 0.5?1.2 cm. In Laparoscopic surgery the surgeon operates by looking at the magnified image displayed on TV monitors. Similar procedures performed in the chest cavity are called thoracoscopic surgery. Laparoscopic surgeries are popularly performed for gallstones disease, appendicitis, ventral and inguinal hernia and rectal prolapse. Now they are also performed for oesophageal, gastric and colo-rectal cancer and the operations for treating morbid obesity (Bariatric Surgery).
The advantages of minimal access surgery are less postoperative pain and early recovery and return to work. The complication of postoperative wound infection is eliminated. As the incisions are so small unsightly scars are avoided.
