Useful information for GPs
Patients are seen pre-operatively and reviewed regularly for two years post-surgery by our bariatric surgery team. Patients require their regular medication to be converted to a liquid, chewable or dissolvable form for four to six weeks post bariatric surgery and lifelong vitamin and mineral supplements.
Details of these will be communicated on an individual patient basis but the guidelines below may be useful for additional information.
