WLS more than ditching lbs

Have your been considering WLS or are you a patient who has already had WLS ?  What is or was your motivating factor?  There are plenty of reasons for having a bariatric procedure such as losing weight, improving your health and reducing your meds but as a result you may obtain even more health benefits which you haven’t even considered.

You can reach out to the community of if you want to find patients in similar situations who are motivating each other.  Confiding in someone is incredibly powerful and important

The wonderful thing about Bariatric surgery is that it is the only surgery which will improve multiple medical situations.  Here’s an example:  if a patient has a bad appendix, a surgery is performed to take out the appendix and this surgery will cure one problem – a bad appendix.  Having a bariatric surgery can cure (or greatly improve) an assortment of medical issues:  high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, and diabetes.  It can even lower your risk for certain types of cancer.  Imagine that – all from one single surgery.

A weight reduction of ten to twenty percent can have very dramatic health effects.  Our bodies have incredible forces to recover and recuperate.  The average person who is wanting to have weight loss surgery didn’t put on all of the weight in a year.  They gained weight over a period of years and also the problems associated with their weight problem developed over the same period of time.  What is amazing is that with a bariatric surgery, most of the excess weight can be lost in 12 to 18 months and the medical problems that are associated with the weight gain can also be resolved in that same short timeframe.  

It’s all about your health.  It’s about the quantity and quality of your life and the ability to be able to do the things that you want to do when you want to do them.
