HOW DO WE INTERPRET THESE OBSERVATIONS?
POUCH SIZE: By following the “rules of the pouch”, it doesn’t matter what size the pouch ends up. The feeling of fullness with 1 ½ cups of food can be achieved.
OUTLET SIZE: Regardless of the outlet size, liquidly foods empty faster than solid foods. High calorie liquids will create weight gain.
EARLY PROFOUND SATIETY: Before six months, patients much sip water constantly to get in enough water each day, which causes them to always feel full. After six months, about 2/3 of the pouch has grown larger due to the natural healing process. At this time, the patient can drink 1 cup of water at a time.
OPTIMUM MATURE POUCH: The pouch works best when the outlet is not too small or too large and the pouch itself holds about 1 ½ cups at a time.
