Manage episode 358599354 series 2916556
It's in the news today and it's been on my Facebook feed this week. People are going to Turkey for gastric sleeves, and some of these procedures are going better than others!
But why are they going abroad for gastric surgery? Why not stay home and have it on the NHS if they're going to have it?
What even is the problem with gastric surgery anyway? Why is it so bad?
I'm going to talk about the realities of having this major surgery. You deserve to be fully informed.
Here are a couple of links to information that I have used to put together this episode, including some information that I didn't even have time to squeeze in to the episode:
- Risks and complications of bariatric surgery
- The advantages and disadvantages of sleeve gastrectomy; clinical laboratory to bedside review
- Gastric Sleeve Surgery Complications and Risks
If you would like to look at how I can help you to find an alternative to having this life changing surgery please reach out. All the links are below. I'd love to help you.
I must stress, I am not a medical practitioner and I do not have lived experience with gastric surgery. I have my own research in order to talk to you, but ultimately these are my opinions. Please do your own research on this topic.
