Weight Loss Surgery- A Major Life Decision, Donít Take It Lightly

By Expert Author: Mike Nichoson

Weight loss surgery is a life-changing decision and every patient has eyes set on making the surgery- a successful event of their life. Over the years, the numbers have increased and thousands of patients are proceeding with the gastric bypass, gastric sleeve or gastric banding surgery for weight loss.

Every patient after the surgery intends to retain the post-op weight for a longer duration. No one plans or intends to get the surgery done and then go back to their old eating habits and regain the weight. Yet some do, since everyone does not succeed in keeping off weight for a long haul. The result of weight loss surgery is not the same for every patient, since patients react differently after the operation.

To be successful in maintaining your weight begins long before your surgeon meets you in the operating room. The decision to go in for the laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery in Delhi should not be taken lightly and requires a great deal of soul searching and homework from your end.

Whether youíre investigating the very thought of the surgery or planning about your surgical options, here are a few tips that may help you-

If youíre planning to have a bariatric surgery-

Does the BMI rule apply to you? The BMI ruler must indicate you to be less than 40, or be more than 100 pounds. Usually, the insurance companies are checking if thereís presence of Diabetes, Hypertension, or Sleep Apnea.
Numerous attempts, failed? All your attempts of buying over the counter medicines failed, and you regained weight?
Does your insurance company cover your weight loss program? This alone may shatter all your dreams for getting this surgery done! Several insurance companies do not cover the surgery or the follow-up visits. So youíve to deal on your own with unforeseen complications, if any.

Do some soul searching, if youíve fulfilled the above criteria.
This is a life-changing decision. Are you really ready to make a life altering decision that will hereafter affect each and every phase of your life, apart from your weight and related health problems?
Are you sure to change your eating habits for life? This is not as simple as taking a bite of your burger. No patient will come and tell you that it was a very enjoyable and smooth sailing ride. Weight loss surgery is a wonderful tool and it will be a great tool if youíre 100% committed.
Plagued with second thoughts? Stop the process. Itís okay to stop the process midway through, if youíre having reservations or want to back out. Patients get swayed away with the patientís inspiring success stories and jump into it, only to regret it later. Thereíre patients who stop the process and return after a year or so, some never return. It is a wise decision on their part, as proceeding with the operation for wrong reasons will never reap the desired fruits.

Success of the surgery is based upon the skill of the surgeon and most importantly, itís your commitment that matters. Itís your commitment to make the lifestyle changes- not for a few months, but for a lifetime!
Eat smart and live smart.
