During your ReShape Gastric Balloon implantation period, it’s extremely important to take the prescribed medications from your healthcare provider. Prescribed medications will include antispasmodics, antiemetics and pain relievers which are important to help manage post-procedure symptoms such as soreness and nausea.
The ReShape Balloon Procedure is unlike other well-known weight loss surgeries such as the gastric bypass or sleeve gastrectomy. Especially if you are looking for a shorter recovery period that includes lighter anesthesia and does not require a hospital stay. However, with any procedure, surgical or minimally invasive, there will be a period of recovery and side effects are expected. As you’ll read, side effects with the ReShape weight loss balloon may be less severe and last for a shorter time frame than other weight loss surgeries.
