There's a lot to take into consideration when researching whether bariatric surgery is right for you. Here are some frequently asked questions to get you started.
If you have sleeve or gastric bypass surgery, expect to be in the hospital for two nights. If you have band surgery, you can be in the hospital for one night or leave the same day.
Most types of insurance cover bariatric surgery, but some policies have exclusions. Contact your insurance company for details.
You will begin losing weight immediately after surgery. But, don’t be surprised if you actually weigh a few pounds more when you go home than you did when you entered the hospital. This can be a result of all the fluids you were given in the hospital, and the weight will be lost quickly.
