Patients who have successfully traveled this road too attended and shared their invaluable experience.
One key adjustment for patients after surgery is to eat differently.
The new stomach is only 50 to 80 ml in size where as it was probably 2 liters before surgery. But, you feel full and satisfied with just 50ml of food now. No need to over-stuff. But your mind needs to be trained by you to understand this fact and help it overcome old habits.
Craving is another challenge along the way.
Did you know that you crave more when you don’t sweat i.e. when you don’t exercise?
Simple exercises like walking, having plenty of water through out the day and frequently eating small portions of healthy food can magically stop your craving and put you on top gear for a life time success.
Dr Khaitan also explained that successful weight loss after surgery results in some hormonal changes, contributing to temporary hair loss in a few patients in the immediate months after surgery. Some patients may also notice that their hair begins to thin or its texture becomes coarse.
Not to worry! This hair loss is temporary and can be addressed by making some changes in the diet.
Dr Khaitan also addressed other common questions such as chances of skin loosening, mood swings etc after surgery.
