The Importance of Support After Surgery
The Importance of Support after Surgery
Post bariatric followup care is crucial to success after weight loss surgery and can help prevent patients from regaining their weight, nutritional deficiencies, and guide in the progression of ridding obesity related diseases such as type two diabetes, high blood pressure, or sleep apnea.
According to the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism there are new guidelines on what type of support mechanisms should be in place for patients post-surgically.
Choose A Multidisciplinary Practice or Doctor
Choosing a doctor or practice with a team dedicated to the nutritional, and psychological effects post surgical are going to have a huge impact on your post-surgical life. The team then works together communicating your needs so that any issues are collaborated on and addressed together.
Attend a Support Group
Being a member of a local support group is another excellent way to track nutritional needs and discuss your progress with others in the group. Often times support groups can also be great ways to find friends that reinforce workout routines, or healthy eating.
