Answer: Gastric bypass surgery makes the stomach smaller and causes food to bypass part of the small intestine. You will feel full more quickly than when your stomach was its original size. This reduces the amount of food you can eat at one time. Bypassing part of the intestine reduces how much food and nutrients are absorbed. This leads to weight loss.
Answer: Gastric Bypass surgery is very expensive in the USA and Canada. The average self pay price is over $35,000. Most insurance companies do not cover this surgery because it was once considered cosmetic. However we now know this is not a cosmetic procedure but insurance companies do not want to pay the big price tag. I have found an amazing deal in Mexico which is becoming more and more popular. The price was $10,000 and it included airfare, hotel, surgery in a world class hospital, and an aftercare program when you return home. So you should consider having it abroad if your insurance wont cover it at home.

Answer: A gastric ulcer is a 1/2-2 inch area on the lining of the inside of your stomach that has been worn away through some sort of contact of acid. Gastric ulcers are sometimes called stomach ulcers or peptic ulcers, though peptic ulcers can also refer to duodunal ulcers. Gastric ulcers are common among the Helicobacter pylori infection, an infection of the pyloric sphincter (the valve connecting the stomach and the upper small intestine).Treatment can be medications such as over-the-counter antacid pills, or your physician can prescribe stronger medications. Three ways to prevent gastric ulcers are to wash your hands before and after eating and going to the bathroom, not smoking, and not over-drinking.
