Life after Weight Loss Surgery

Weight loss surgery involves changes in your body, your lifestyle, your diet, and your overall health. It could also affect your relationships and other aspects of your life. Since this is a life-altering process, you must consult a San Antonio bariatric surgery center to know what to expect after the surgery to help you better prepare.

Weight Loss

Surgical processes help patients lose significant amounts of weight over the course of six months to a year. But the success rate also depends on how well you maintain your lifestyle and diet post-surgery. If you are able to maintain a healthy lifestyle, you could also lose up to 80% of excess weight in the first six months.

How fast you lose weight depends on the type of surgery you choose. Patients who have lap band surgery lose weight less quickly than those who have sleeve gastrectomy or gastric bypass surgery. San Antonio weight loss clinics have surgeons who will be able to help you make an informed choice.

Medical Conditions and Lifestyle

In most cases, weight loss surgery resolves weight-related medical conditions like diabetes, sleep apnea, cardiac problems, etc. Diabetes is resolved in most people undergoing laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery in San Antonio, while sleep apnea and the risk of heart disease also show improvement.

The improvement of medical conditions in turn improves the quality of life and leads to significant positive changes in your lifestyle.

Side effects

Side effects may include nausea, vomiting, heartburn, diarrhea, and other surgical complications like bleeding. Patients must stay away from alcohol or other addictions to avoid problems.

Each weight loss surgery has its own pros and cons. Consult a San Antonio bariatric surgery center for more information on each.

    i had gastric bypass on August 17, 2007. I have kept off over 100 pounds in eight years. My weight has fluctuated. When I have went back to old ways of coping with life’s problems. ie; snacking, late night eating, not following the rules. WEPNSS. I have asked for help. More than once. Do whatever it takes. Obesity is a lifetime illness that is not cured. It’s managed. We as patients have to continue to be proactive. We have at our disposal The Best Team of Doctors and staff to help us along our way. Not just a year out. I consider that our “honeymoon” period. But, years two and three are when we have to remember it is a tool. Please don’t give up. Reach out. We are not sentenced to a lifetime of misery. We can have “Joy, Peace and happieness.
