Bariatric surgery is your first step to a healthy life if you are morbidly obese. Morbid obesity can kill; bariatric surgeries can not only help you lose weight but also save your life. Here are a few things you need to know before going in for a surgery.
Are you the right fit for the procedure?
If you are overweight to the point your well being and health is threatened, you should opt for this surgery. They are informed of the potential risks, possible complications, and the ultimate benefits intertwined within the proposed procedure(s).
Patient preparation before Weight Loss Surgery
To ensure a good recovery and a good result from your procedures it is necessary for you to follow all of the advice offered to you by your surgeon. You are likely to be asked to:
- Stop smoking.
- Stop drinking.
- Keep healthy.
- Avoid certain blood thinning medications or supplements
Plan your recovery. Following your operation you will not be able to drive for 24 hours. It is very helpful to have someone on hand to help you throughout these few days.
Like after any other surgical procedure, the pain is variable from one patient to the next. You may feel sore for a few days but can resume your daily routine almost immediately. It is however advised to wait for a while before you began any strenuous activities.
The Aftercare Advice
Your recovery and the results depend on how well you adhere to the advice and instructions of your doctor. Patients will be instructed on proper cleaning of the incision (if any) and the application of topical ointment for pain, if necessary. Patients should abstain from heavy exercise for about six weeks unless they are told otherwise. It is recommended that the patients use ice to the area for the first 48 hours in combination with a specially designed topical anesthetic cream, and an oral medication as needed for the first 4 -5 days. Most of the pain is resolved by then.
Results will last for
The final result will vary from person to person. But the gold standard answer is 2-3 months until a “final result” can be judged. Nonetheless, most patients will appreciate a very near final result in about half that time.
