3.           I DO NOT GAIN WEIGHT AGAIN AFTER THE SURGERY: WRONG!

After a bariatric operation, weight gain can be observed, There may be several reasons for weight gain after bariatric operations;

      If the Stomach volume is left wider than it should during the operation, the patient will need to eat more for satiety warning. The patient can easily spot this situation, which is one of the reasons for insufficient weight loss or weight gain after the operation. This condition can be located through endoscopy. In addition, it is normal for the stomach to expand a certain amount after the surgery.

     After bariatric operations, patients need to change their lifestyle according to the operation performed and abandon their old habits. This is the essential rule for the patient to experience permanent results. Bariatric operations on their own will not be sufficient enough for a patient to be able to lose weight. Because the mechanics of obesity are very simple, your calorie intake versus your calorie consumption determines the weight loss in the long term.

     If their calorie expenditure is not achieved and with a sedentary lifestyle, patients can observe weight gain after their operations. Unfortunately, a significant number of patients do believe that bariatric surgeries on their own can cause sufficient weight loss. In that regard, a nutritionist should advise the patient on the appropriate diet after their operation, not just for weight maintenance but also for increasing the living standards along with the lifespan of a patient in the long term.
