This surgery is a wonderful tool to help the morbidly obese person lose weight, but it is not the magic cure for obesity. Pre-ops must research the lifestyle changes that will be necessary to make having the surgery a long-term success and fully accept those changes as necessary. The surgery may change our stomachs, but it does nothing to our minds. Joining support groups made up of other post-op patients is an excellent way to keep yourself on track, discuss issues related to food, exercise and the dreaded plateau, but mostly, to meet with other people who truly understand where you have come from, what you are going through and all the emotional issues that arise as you go from being morbidly obese toward a smaller and healthier person.
