So, you've decided to see a weight-loss surgeon. It's a big step but you think it's the right one. You're tired of those kilos stubbornly sticking to you despite your efforts to shift them. You want a decisive change.

Your appointment is coming up soon and you want to make the most of it. So, what are the most important questions you should ask your bariatric surgeon? Obviously, you’re keen to know if surgery works and how much it costs. What else should you find out before you commit?

Weight-loss surgery changes your body. That’s the aim, right? But you need to give yourself enough time to recover from the operation and adjust to a changed digestive system and diet.

For the first few days, you’ll be in hospital under close observation and on a liquid diet. After that, you’ll recover at home and, after a couple of weeks, start eating soft, solid foods.

You may need a couple of weeks off work to recover from the surgery and adjust to your changed body. You should also be enrolled in a comprehensive aftercare program to ensure you have support from your surgeon, dietitian, psychologist and exercise physiologist over the next 12 months.
