Malabsorption of oral antibiotics in pregnancy after gastric bypass surgery
Date of Original Version
Gastric bypass surgery, by definition, changes the absorption capabilities of the stomach and small intestine. The use of oral medications in patients post gastric bypass may need to be adjusted by medical providers to account for this absorption change. The following case exemplifies this dilemma in a pregnant patient status post gastric bypass surgery with a complicated urinary tract infection.
