Study 2018: Sexual abuse affects bariatric surgery recovery



Recommended Posts

Adults who experienced childhood abuse have different recovery needs after bariatric surgery than those who were not abused.

Children who experience physical, sexual, or verbal abuse sustain long-term consequences, studies have found. Abuse, neglect, witnessing crime, parental conflict, mental illness, or substance abuse can create dangerous levels of stress that can impact healthy brain development. These Adverse Childhood Experiences can increase the risk for smoking, alcoholism, heart disease, and many other illnesses and unhealthy behaviors throughout life.

You know the old saying was
What does not kill you merely serves to strengthen you.
I would like to know how close you need to get to death for maximum strength effect?
Child abuse is a game that never should have been played , all victims have scars, they just aren't visible,to people outside, it does not negate the truth of it all!💦Years pass but memories still remain.

The title is a little misleading. It's more "childhood abuse" than "sexual abuse," isn't it? Like, I could absolutely believe that sexual assault survivors also have a harder time, but having a high ACE score does not mean one was sexually abused, necessarily.

If you have a high ACE score, you also have much higher chances of developing chronic illness.

Therapy, meditation/mindfulness, and some other interventions can help, though.

Strike two in one day. First, I mess up the date when identifying a study (2108), now I botch this title. I'm afraid to think what my third strike might have been had I posted another topic today. I had no intent to mislead. Thank you for pointing out my latest blunder.:blush: My new status may soon be ASPIRING BLUNDERIST.:)

      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".
