A commitment to a way of life that involves healthful eating and regular exercise will help avoid weight loss resistance. You should have even made this commitment before the surgery.
The typical weight loss after the procedure is around one-third to one-half of the excess weight you are carrying. This is often good enough for several patients. Discuss with your physician about the best bariatric procedure for your situation.
The excess weight will normally come off more slowly compared to gastric bypass surgery. You will keep shedding pounds for up to three years.
Shedding a sufficient amount of weight after the procedure can improve several medical conditions you may have, like:
- High blood pressure
- High blood cholesterol
- Sleep apnea
- Type 2 diabetes
- Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
The procedure in itself is not the ultimate solution to lose weight. It can teach you to eat less, but you still need to do most of the work.
To shed weight and prevent complications from the surgery, you simply must comply with the exercise and eating guidelines that your doctor and dietitian gave you.
