Weight Loss Surgery and Obesity

Posted on April 27, 2018

"Well, I'm having an up and down week I went to a class on obesity surgery what to expect what I have to do to prep and continue. Also, I'm lucky I have my appointment at the clinic on Thursday for the start of what can be done and everything I need to do." - A member of MyObesityTeam

On MyObesityTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with obesity, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Surgery is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are some question and answer threads about surgery:

"Did you gain the weight back after surgery?"

"Is there a specific weight requirement for gastric band surgery?"

"How do I lose extra skin without surgery?"

Here are some conversations about surgery:

A member asks the community who else is waiting for weight loss surgery?

A member is upset about not being able to get weight loss surgery.

A member shares her excitement about getting surgery approval.

Can you relate?

I too gained all my weight back and am now trying to do keto to get enough off to have a hip replacement. Good luck to you
