Q: After Gastric Bypass surgery, when do I follow up with the doctor?

A: During your recovery you will see Prof. van der Walt on a regular basis. There will usually be a follow-up visit after two weeks, and again six weeks your Gastric Bypass operation. Follow-up visits occur every three months to help your weight stabilize and to make sure that you are comfortable with your new lifestyle. After your weight is stable, you'll have regular yearly follow-up visits.
