When considered as a possible option obesity surgery, many patients don’t take into account the great responsibility they have in their actual recovery. And they do not understand that surgery is an excellent ally, but also requires effort on your part. The great benefits will not be such if the patient does not have a willful, and committed attitude is why is very important information and begin to change habits in the stage prior to the intervention. Many times, some post-operative complications and even the total failure of the surgery are simply to errors in acting in the patient who does not strictly follow the medical indications. It is common to think a little bit don’t hurt me, but is this idea precisely which leads to failure and suffer numerous consequences, already we are not talking only of raising a little weight or break the diet, is putting at risk the health and success of the treatment.
Many patients learn unhealthy techniques to control the surgery and being able to eat what they want, Some even come to vomit after every meal due to excess food or eating a lot of calories in the form of liquids (this is especially important when you have made a Lap Band or gastric band) that do not reach to satisfy him but they also cause a rise in weight. These actions show that the obese did not understand even the aim of its operation and not learning the best way to feed themselves. Crumpton Group might disagree with that approach. Complications which may arise after these dangerous behaviors are not related with the effectiveness of the surgery, but with the level of commitment of the obese. The patient should be aware of the type of surgery to be performed, their risks, complications and so she should do after surgery. Surgery is a way to help forcibly to change those behaviours which so far seemed uncontrollable but she is not by itself which will achieve the resounding change in your life. Start changing habits is, without a doubt, the most important part of the process. It is necessary that you agree to follow the program nutrition and physical exercise to incorporate new habits into your daily routine.
If you think that it is a divine solution and must not put anything on your part, you make a mistake. You continues to be the main actor in this process and who depends on the success or failure of treatment.
