Hi everybody!



My name is Louise and I am a researcher in bariatric surgery from University College Cork in Ireland.



Having personal experience of the bariatric journey, I was amazed by the huge psychological impact the surgery has & how much we still need to learn.


Ireland has quite a small bariatric community so I would be so grateful if you would lend your voice/experience and be apart of something meaningful.


The questionnaire doesnt require any identifying information, just your experience & will take about 15min to complete.


I am more than happy to forward you the results once I have completed it if you would like.


Here it is

If you would like anymore information or the final results, my email is listed on the first page. Also, if you decide to do the survey, leave a comment & let me know so I can send positive thoughts and love your way! :D



Thank you so much in advance to anyone who contributes their experience :)

I just finished the survey. What surprised me was that it brought a lot of hidden emotions to the surface. I was expecting to just respond to the questions and then go on with my day........but now I have to reflect on how this surgery has changed so many other aspects in my life. How can I be a fairy happy person yet fall ino a dark space so unexpectedly?

So, Loulou 11, I think the results of this survey will impact me personally in many ways. Thanks for posting it.

I did the survey. Not very easy to do on mobile because the screen gets cut off.

I did it...the education is different that in the US, so I wasn't sure about that... but it was interesting... as stated... it made me "think" about things again

Thank you for your participation and your feedback, I really appreciate it.

@@AprilHansen : Yes April, it would be more comfortable in a tablet, laptop or pc. Thanks so much for doing it! :)

@@Miss Mac : I am so glad you felt this survey was relevant to you. Its such a meaningful piece of research and very much needed in the area. :)

Unfortunately this research does not receive funding to provide incentives for participating but hopefully people will see its relevency and complete the questionnaire so that the results are as representative as possible.

@@BigGirlPanties : Yes, apologies for that, it started out as an Irish based survey! thanks you so much for your input :)

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
