Your new stomach is much smaller and shaped like a small tube. We bypass 150 to 200 cm of intestines. The surgeon will attach the remainder of the intestines to the new stomach. After surgery food will pass into small tube like stomach and will bypass 150 to 200 cm intestine. Normal digestive procedure will carry out in the remaining intestine.
