MISTAKE #1: NOT TAKING VITAMINS, SUPPLEMENTS, or MINERALS
After Bariatric Weight Loss Surgery it is extremely important for patients to take there vitamins, supplements, or minerals. Patients will be on a very low calorie diet after Bariatric Weight Loss Surgery and will not be getting all the nutrients they require through their diet therefor it is essential that they take supplements daily to maintain adequate levels of vitamins and minerals in the body otherwise vitamin deficiencies can occur.
MISTAKE #2: ASSUMING YOU HAVE BEEN CURED OF YOUR OBESITY
Surgery is not a cure, it is a tool. Each Bariatric Weight Loss Surgery provides patients with a tool to help improve obesity and its co-morbid conditions. Surgery itself does about 40% of the work but the remaining 60% must come from the patient.
