"Does the Patient Fail the Procedure or Does the Procedure Fail the Patient" Dr. Mitchell Roslin

Thank you for sharing this. My sister is beating herself up because she has had a significant regain after RNY. This will help her understand the reasons and mechanisms.

I think the patient can overeat excess calories and begin to regain weight

and I also think the WLS can have issues and I also think the combination of patient and WLS surgery

can also cause weight gain back. To gain weight, we must eat more calories than we can burn off. This

is how I got super morbid obese. I wish the newer patients would not put so much (the WLS MUST work) while I

dont change a thing attitude. Some are finding that WLS is not easy and its not a miracle. It will help the person

but the person must also make changes. I know that as I am talking about myself.

Good point CG. Anyone altering their body with WLS needs to know that it is also a mindset change. Can't stay the same and have big changes.... For long. After the " honeymoon" ends, there are choices to be made

????I'm thankful

@@Julie norton @@☠carolinagirl☠ true the bariatric surgery is not the easy way out. it takes hard work and dedication to changes those long-ingrained thoughts and behaviors that led us to become M.O. in the first place.

When I had my gastric bypass some 11-years ago, there were none of the support systems and education from a treatment team (nutritionist, psychologist, etc) to help a patient succeed. The surgeon told me, "I do the surgery. The rest is up to you."

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
