When you have undergone bariatric surgery, you are looking at a brand new phase in your life. No matter what type of bariatric surgery you have chosen, it is important to remember that you must be careful and aware of what is going on with your body. Do you know what to expect in terms of weight loss goals?
Take It Slow
For a few weeks after recovery, don’t even get on the scale. You have just undergone a life-changing type of surgery, and the most important thing for you to do is to make sure that you are healing correctly. The first two weeks are usually spent on a liquid diet of some kind, and then as you move forward, take the time to carefully integrate solid foods into your diet. Remember that any signs of discomfort or problematic sensations should be reported right to your doctor.
