General risks of surgery

All surgery carries some risk, 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 don't hesitate to give us a call now on 0191 418 8687 or email at and we will answer any questions you may have.
