Life After Weight Loss Surgery
At Saint Francis Center for Surgical Weight Loss, we do not measure the success of our program only by the amount of weight our patients lose, but also in the improvement of the quality of their lives. The surgery itself is only one component of a successful treatment plan; while it will certainly help you lose weight, you must continue to work hard through exercise and dietary changes to obtain the maximum, lifelong benefits of the surgery.
Successful patients embrace a new mindset.
Patients report an improved quality of life after weight loss surgery. Many medical conditions are improved or resolved. They actually have the energy to enjoy life. They are no longer embarrassed by their weight and have the confidence to try many things that they have not attempted in the past.
Many weight loss surgery patients express elation on being able to do things that may seem trivial to the non-obese person, such as, going to the store, playing with their children, getting in and out of a car, riding a roller coaster, shopping for regular sized clothes, crossing their legs, tying their own shoes, traveling…the list is endless.
Our patients learn what it is like to feel better and have improved health. The surgery gives them a tool to reinforce the positive lifestyle changes they are ready to make. Our support groups are an integral part of maintaining this commitment.
