First, the patient needs compensatory treatment for at least one year after the operation.
He added that "the second problem of this process is the interruption of communication between the entire stomach and the rest of the stomach and the twelve and bile ducts, so if the patient was infected with gallstones or ulcer in the twelve can not be used gastroscope or bile ducts from the mouth to extract this gallstone or Diagnosing and taking a sample of the duodenal ulcer and thus the doctor is forced to conduct a surgical operation and the process is transformed from a simple case to a complex surgery. "
Abdul Jalil revealed that a two-track conversion is being done, one of which performs the function of converting the mini-track, and the second to give the opportunity to use a gastroscope or bile ducts from the mouth, pointing out that this second path passes through 25 percent of the food and therefore the patient does not need a compensatory treatment after This surgery.
