If the patient continues to smoke, there is an increased risk of ulcers, whether for sleeve or bypass. If the patient does not exercise regularly, there may also be vascular problems. Remember that the intervention, regardless of its type, never presents a magic wand! It acts alone for the first period, but then the patient must always cooperate actively.
If the patient is truly cooperative and sometimes this is the hardest thing to achieve, the results can be really optimal.
