Preparing for gastric sleeve surgery at Spire Fylde Coast

Getting here

The hospital is located a 10 minute drive from Junction 4 of the M55 and close to Stanley Park and Blackpool Victoria Hospital. We have free on-site parking for you and your visitors.

Your consultations

You’ll meet one of our experienced bariatric surgeons in one of our easily accessible, private consultation rooms. During the consultation, we’ll ask you about your medical history and discuss:

  • The options for your surgery
  • Any tests you may need such as an electrocardiogram (ECG) as well as blood tests and scans
  • What the surgery involves, including the anaesthetic and any risks or complications

You’ll have a chance to ask your consultant any questions you may have. Some people find it helps to bring a list of questions with them and make notes as they go along.

If you decide to go ahead with gastric sleeve surgery, you’ll also meet a specialist nurse so they can further assess if surgery is right for you. You’ll also need to have a full pre-operative assessment.

Gastric sleeve surgery: your procedure

When you arrive on the day of your surgery, we’ll show you to your own private en-suite room where you’ll have access to all the facilities you’d expect, including:

  • TV
  • Telephone
  • En-suite
  • Free WiFi

You’ll meet your consultant, anaesthetist and the surgical team. If you've come with a friend or family member, they'll be advised when they can return to visit you.

Before the operation, you’ll be given a general anaesthetic and once ready, your consultant will carry out the surgery to remove part of your stomach.

The surgery usually takes one to two hours, but you’ll stay in hospital for up to two days after your surgery.

Your aftercare and recovery

During your stay, you’ll be given painkillers for any discomfort. Your nursing team will make sure you’re comfortable with everything you need.

We’ll have regular follow-up appointments with you after you leave hospital. These will be up to two years after your surgery. You'll also have appointments before and after surgery with a dietitian, and telephone advice for up to two years.
