I got an incomplete roux-en-y gastric bypass on 9/10/15. I was in surgery for four hours, instead of the usual 90 minutes (apparently).
My surgeon said he could not see, because of my anatomy, to continue the surgery and he was getting tired. Basically, the wall to make the pouch was only half-completed. He also said if he continued he would have risked killing me.
There is some leakage into the old part of the stomach, though it all ends up in the intestines. He said it was not because I was too fat, so I am left wondering why he could not see?
Far more importantly, has anyone experienced this? What can I expect? Surgery was only 2 days ago but I am fearful for my life abd health. Every time I sip water I get a painful hiccup after.
