Life After Bariatric Surgery
Imagine yourself 50 pounds lighter, with lower blood pressure, and able to walk up a flight of stairs without getting out of breath. Reaching goals like these is possible after bariatric surgery. However, it requires a commitment to eat healthier, exercise more, stay connected with your bariatric team, and recruit supportive family members and friends to help you stay on track.
Recovery after bariatric surgery is different for each person. Having realistic expectations about what you can achieve and allowing yourself time to heal will help you adjust to your new weight loss lifestyle.
