General risks of surgery

All surgery carries some risk but complications are rare, please discuss these with your consultant and ask him to explain anything you do not understand.

Depending on the procedure you have you may be likely to have some pain after surgery due to the bruising and swelling around your wounds. You may also suffer from dumping syndrome (e.g dizziness/nausea) caused by certain foods you may once have been used to, but the energy from these foods now gets in to your blood stream much more quickly.

If you would like any further information please do not hesitate to get in touch, either by phone or email and we will get back to you with answers to your questions.
