I have been considering getting weight loss surgery for a while now, but I’ve been straddling the fence on the decision.
I had a friend who underwent the gastric sleeve surgery and ended up having major regrets about permanently altering her body. I wasn’t too worried about that until I talked to her and now I’m kinda worried about it.
After talking to her I was pretty much leaning no on the whole bariatric surgery thing, BUT then I saw one of my favorite characters, Kate, on my favorite new show (BTW, it’s called “This is Us”, if you haven’t seen it check it out, it’s great!) decided to undergo the gastric bypass surgery.
I did a little digging and it looks like the bypass also permanently alters your body :
It seems like if Kate’s getting it on the show this procedure is pretty legit then? I’m not sure, I don’t know what to do.
So, I guess I was hoping I could get a professional opinion on a permanent surgery.
How much would getting the bypass, or the sleeve for that matter, permanently change my life? Is it a crazy commitment? What can I do to make sure I stay on track if I do decide to get these surgeries?
Any help would be amazing! Thanks!
