Synopsis

You want to look into bariatric surgery. Congratulations! It is exciting step, but getting all of the information you need - and trying to figure out fact from fiction - in order to make your final decision can be confusing and frustrating. Look no further! In this Guide you will learn everything you need to know in order to make an informed decision: *Each procedure - from gastric bypass, "the sleeve," and the lap band - is explained in detail, from what the surgery entails to the pros and cons for each and what type of person is best suited for which surgery. *A list of the qualifications you must meet in order to be considered for the surgery. *A complete outline of the insurance process (which some consider to be the most difficult part of the procedure) and hidden costs. *A detailed chronology of events from your first doctor's appointment to 1 year post-op, including the diets, vitamin regimens, and side effects you may encounter.
