Weight loss surgery has many positive effects on people. There are so many health benefits, like remission of type 2 diabetes. Patients will also have more energy, be more mobile, and enjoy an active life. Bariatric surgery helps improve people’s mood and self-confidence.
The support after weight loss surgery, such as family & friends and support groups, is extremely important. The patient needs to find ways to cope with stress and strong feelings, as well as food addiction.
Changes in life can cause stress and emotional issues. There needs to be an adjustment to their lifestyle, including proper diet and exercise. If the patient is used to stress eating and had an unhealthy relationship with food before surgery, they may become gambling, drinking, shopping, and smoking problems afterward.
