I have a herina, can I have gastric by pass

Patient: I have a herina, can I have gastric by pass or do I need to have the hernia fixed first.

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.comI understand your concern.The content of the hernia is bowel and has nothing to do with gastric bypass surgery.You can go ahead with the gastric bypass and if required hernia can be operated later on.Hope this was helpful,Regards
