  • The Gastric bypass/sleve and perotoneal Dialysis

    I am currently on Hemo' Dialysis but would like to go on Perotoneal Dialysis, I also scheduled to get the Gastric bypass/sleeve operation, since both opeerations involve the "gut" is it possible to do both PD and get the gastric bypass?

    That would be something to ask your nephrologist. He knows your situation best. Good Luck

      Hi I would ask your dr for sure. I had stage 2 CKD when I had my gastric sleeve which my dr said was ok. Things did not go well with the surg.(because of Dr.) and I can't do PD because of it. Now I am stage 3b and will do Home HemoDialysis when the time comes. Good Luck with whatever you decide.

        I assume you've already talked to your doctor, since the post was over a year ago, but I wanted to weigh in (pun intended ) as someone who had gastric sleeve surgery and will be starting PD very soon. My sleeve surgery was 2.5 years ago and I was told that PD would be no problem for me. I'm 5'2, 225, after losing 70lbs (and still trying to lose more). I don't know what the threshold is for weight, but it can be done. I've been told that the solution contains glucose and weight gain can occur, so I plan to step up my exercise regiment to compensate.
        I hope this helps. Good luck!
