Typically, half of a gastric bypass patient's weight loss occurs in the first six months after surgery, with weight loss peaking at 18-24 months. Data indicates that gastric bypass is effective at improving and even curing a number of obesity-related co-morbidities, including adult onset diabetes (also called insulin resistant diabetes), hypertension, high cholesterol, arthritis, venous stasis disease, bladder incontinence, liver disease, certain types of headaches, heartburn, sleep apnea and many other disorders. Furthermore, gastric bypass results in more rapid, greater and sustained weight loss for many patients previously chronically obese, resulting in marked improvements in quality of life.
