Considering Weight Loss Surgery?

Are you searching for information to help you decide if weight loss surgery is for you? Do you have the dedication and commitment needed to ensure that the weight loss surgery will be successful in the long run? Weight loss is not an easy goal, but it is achievable as long as you are prepared.

Are you prepared?  Do you have the most important support structures under you?

Your Doctors
You should be happy and feel comfortable not only with your primary care physician who knows you better than anyone else in medicine, but you should also pretty much be in love with your bariatric surgeon and vice-versa, especially with this person performing a major operation on you.

The relationship you have with your primary care doctor is already well established; he or she will probably be the person who helps you decide if you are a good candidate for weight loss surgery. The relationship you build with your bariatric surgeon will be just as important. You want it to be a good one because if you have questions before or after your surgery, you will need to feel that you can talk to your surgeon.

Your Friends
The real friends that you tell about your weight loss plans will be there for you through thick and thin. They will support you and not judge you. They will also be happy that you are making a life changing decision and do all they can to help you.

Weight Loss Survivors
We learn from our personal experiences. We often learn more from others. By joining a support group of people who are planning on or have undergone bariatric surgery, you will be able to share your feelings and fears with someone who understands your point of view. These are strangers who share your journey, and they can be a comfort to you in ways that others can't.

Family Members
Last but not least, your family members have as great an interest in your weight loss surgery as you do. You are a part of their lives, and they only want the best for you. They will do everything with you, except be in the operating room (and they would do that if they could). As you change your lifestyle after your weight loss surgery, you will be able to see that they are changing their lives too. That is love and unconditional support, and that's what family is all about.
