Bariatric surgery gives us an opportunity to enjoy a greater quality of life for years to come. Patients can also be great role models to others around them who may not have had surgery.
As a guest blogger and professional in the field of bariatric patient care, I feel privileged to interact with the entire bariatric patient community and hope to offer some emotional support, practical wisdom and helpful hints to those seeking to maximize this “tool” that they have been given. I am looking to learn from all of you; after all that is really how we professionals do our jobs better.
I would like to respond to questions or issues from you and post answers for the entire WLS Lifestyles community to read. Many topics come to mind in the areas of mental health, emotional support, cross addictive behavior, lifestyles changes with personal and professional life situations as well as self-image and maintaining a healthy and consistent post-operative healing period, both short and long term.
Let me know what interests you, what you are struggling with and how you would like to address it. I welcome all issues that are presented in a sincere and respectful manner
