ABSTRACT

Background: Obesity has become a major public health concern around the world. Bariatric surgery is gaining popularity as an effective and safe solution, particularly for patients with a body mass index greater than 40 kg/m2. The goal of this study is to examine the reasons for having a sleeve gastrectomy and postoperative complications and patient satisfaction in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Methods: This is a community-based, observational, descriptive, and cross-sectional study. An online questionnaire was randomly distributed using social media, generating 279 responses. Results: Among the 279 participants, 92% were satisfied with their postoperative weight, of whom 73% were married. Additionally, 41% chose open surgery, while 56% chose laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG). Among the latter, 40% had no postsurgical complications and 62% were satisfied with the results. Furthermore, 75% of the participants tried to lose weight more than three times and 73% were over 35 years of age. Conclusions: Most of the participants were satisfied with the postoperative results. Participants chose LSG mainly to reduce the adverse effects of conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, and asthma. The chief postoperative complications were nutritional deficiencies, gastroesophageal reflux disease, and strictures.
