Recovery Following Bariatric Surgery
Post-operatively the patient can expect to stay one day in the hospital. Some doctors like to have a radiograph afterwards just to see how things are positioned for a baseline and to make sure that no complications occurred during surgery.
Impact of Obesity on Organ Systems
Obesity is well known to have a negative impact on all our organ systems. Humans have an almost unlimited capability to store energy in the form of fat and the reason we do is because fat’s more efficient than protein and sugar, as a storage agent.
