Medical Weight Loss: 2yrs – The Truth about Weight Loss Surgery. The good, the bad, and the ugly concerning WLS.
I wish you were my friend
@stardancer727 changes like attention. Alot of research and study has shown that people who go through the surgery experience depression because they dont know how to adapt to the new attention and chamges in their body. Ot takes a really good support system to handle it. I know this as an observer and throigh experience. Its actually listed under the set of complications involved.

I plan on getting tummy tuck plus lipo and breast augmention, approx a year post opt,im not even sure im over 40 bmi? im trying to get it paid hru my insurance, Im done having children I have four ,I think my depression is from being 2 x..
I’m so glad that you are so happy with you’r gastric bypass. :).On my side of the story i did have a gastric bypass 8 years ago, Then after that i had a baby.then i gain all my weigh back and i heard you say you would never get the weight back.it’s not true! when i got my surgey i was 280 punds and 8 years after now im 250 pounds again. I feel terible now idk what to do! anyway………CONGRATS AND GOODLUCK! MY name is maria micheal’s mom
Thank you so much for this video. I’m just starting my journey and there’s one thing you said that came straight from my own thoughts. ” My body cannot keep up with my mind.” Thank you, thank you so much for this. Your HARD WORK is an inspiration!
btw, its now 80% of excess weight on the Roux en Y.
RNY is the best surgery, but it also depends on alot of things. Its the least invasive.
listen, this will not change your depression, it may help with your self esteem, but in a lot of cases it can make you more depressed because you may not be able to deal with the changes very well. Just consider that.
Thanks for sharing this video. You are right about the excess skin. Even if you had lost it the natural way, you’d still probably have excess skin most people do, including me. I lost about 70 lbs. right after high school and got down to an almost healthy weight for my frame, I achieved this through diet and exercise at about age 17. Despite that, I’ve still never been able to get rid of the excess skin on my stomach, arms and thighs. Don’t let people say stuff to they don’t understand!!
Wow~Im considering surgery im heavier than i have ever been and depressed, you look amazing u also look so much younger now!! beautiful thanks,and im going for it!! want the new laser kind,suppose to be less envasive, ans easier to recover from would u recomend the mexican surgeon u went to?
And if yes what is the info?
This video is awesome, So happy for you. Had lap band done july 2011 down a 100 have 60 more to go. You look great and I can see you have a good heart so High five your way:)
It’s because she doesn’t have health insurance, and its more affordable for her to have things done in Mexico. But I do agree with u about the complications issue though, but she thats all she can afford right now.
Hi Sandra.. Why are you going to Mexico? You should research a Doctor in the US and go there. I think it is much safer having these surgery in the states, in case there are any complications.
Thank u so much for putting this video online. I’m considering getting the gastric sleeve, but thanks to ur video I’m gonna wait til I feel I have enough therapy to help me stop over eating. And also figure out why I feel that i need to overeat. I feel the same way as u that I need to eat everything on my plate and can’t even leave a bite left on my plate. Anyways thanks again and don’t listen to those ppl out there that r horrible to u. U r helping to make a difference in ppls lives.
THANK YOU!! I was struggling to stay on my pre op diet after a wk of being on it and I came across your video and you helped me focus again. Awesome video :)
