We fully understand at Ashford and St. Peter’s Hospitals that taking the decision to have surgery, to help with weight loss, is a major decision. In appreciation of this, we have designed this guide to inform you of the different types of surgery available, but also what you can expect on your journey.
To qualify for assessment for surgery you are required to have attended and completed a Specialist Weight Management Service.
This leaflet aims to help you to gain a broader understanding of the brain and body’s stress response and how this may contribute to difficulties eating after bariatric surgery.
Mindfulness has been shown to help with a number of physical and psychological difficulties including: type 2 diabetes, chronic pain, binge and emotional eating, depression, anxiety and stress.
This booklet contains a brief overview of the most common psychological risks associated with bariatric surgery.
Please read this booklet carefully. It is important you know and understand this information before deciding whether bariatric surgery is the right thing for you, at this time.
Our aim is to help people lose weight and improve their health, well-being and quality of life. Whether or not you choose to have bariatric surgery achieving these aims usually requires long term lifestyle change.
