Is weight loss surgery safe for someone living with multiple sclerosis? If so, which procedures are best?
I am a 35 year old woman interested in gastric bypass surgery. I have battled with my weight my whole life since 3rd grade. I was diagnosed with graves disease at 24 after graduating college.
My health history is non complicated with no hypertension, no diabetes or other cardiac complications. I am a healthy single mother living with MS and I am in remission since my diagnosis 3 yrs ago. I work full time and raise my son but desire to be healthier for him.
Is this surgery a safe solution for me? Are there any special considerations for a bariatric surgery patient with MS?
