There have been comments each season implying that surgery should not be an option, thinking everyone does it for a quick fix. Like the show, for some, surgery is their last and only option (they've tried everything else). For many WLS programs, there are required post-surgery appointments with nutritionists, support groups, etc. to help people remember it is a tool and not the solution.Originally Posted by babymay;3757526;
I understand the comments about complications and failures (bypass doesn't always work, though there is the quick loss in the first year for those only looking for that result, but it doesn't last).
My question for the show is why they don't mention other surgical options that do not carry the same risks and complications? Many folks watching may have joint and other problems that limit their ability to exercise, so lap-band could be a good tool for them - but they may never hear about it?
I still love the show, but the comments this week with Suzy just pushed me to comment...couldn't take it any more. with Ron last year the point was that it didn't work, so you should exercise/diet instead.
