No mesh is used for gastric bypass.
Jump to this post
I did not have a gastric bypass for weight loss. I had it for repair of a paresophageal (sliding) hernia… which is what the surgery was originally used for; weight loss is a side effect of the surgery. … To hold the hernia in place a safe mesh was used to anchor it to my diaphragm. So sometimes mesh is used… just depends on the reason for the surgery.
