Preparing for gastric bypass surgery at Spire Regency

Getting here

We're located just five minutes away from Macclesfield town centre and Macclesfield station. There’s free parking on-site for you and your visitors.

Your consultations

Your first appointment will take place in one of our consulting rooms. Your consultant will discuss your medical history with you and explain your different options. There’ll be plenty of time to ask any questions. You’ll be able to talk about:

  • What surgery involves – they may recommend different options
  • What’s included in your treatment costs
  • Your anaesthetic and how it might affect you
  • Any potential complications and risks of surgery
  • What’s involved in your recovery, including your aftercare plan which includes changes to your diet and lifestyle

If you decide you’d like to go ahead with a gastric bypass, you’ll meet with a dietitian so they can further assess if surgery is right for you. You'll also need to have a pre-operative assessment which may include:

  • An electrocardiogram (ECG)
  • Blood tests

Gastric bypass surgery: your procedure

When you come in for your operation, you’ll be with us for around two days. You’ll stay in one of our large, bright, private en-suite rooms. All our rooms have the comforts and conveniences you’d expect to find at home, including:

  • TV
  • Window
  • Private en-suite bathroom
  • Armchair
  • WiFi

Here’s what will happen on the day of your gastric bypass:

  • You’ll meet your surgical team and anaesthetist
  • Your anaesthetist will administer the general anaesthetic, which will send you to sleep for the operation
  • Once it’s taken effect, your surgeon will carry out the surgery to reduce the size of your stomach and connect it to the lower part of your small intestine
  • Your operation will take between one and three hours

If you've come with a friend or family member, they're welcome to wait in your room while you have your operation.

Your aftercare and recovery

While you’re in hospital, your nursing team will give you pain relief as and when you need it to make sure you’re comfortable.

After you leave hospital, we’ll arrange to see you for up to two years after your operation so we can keep track of your progress and ensure you’re recovering and losing weight as intended. The first appointments at two weeks and six weeks will be with your consultant and after that a dietitian every three months.

Although everyone’s different, here’s a typical recovery guide for gastric bypass surgery:
