Well you can add bone fractures to the list of reasons why not to have weight loss surgery. I have stated many times that at Slender For Life™ I have had many clients who have previously had gastric bypass or lap-and surgery and came to me weighing more than they did prior to surgery. The problem with bariatric surgery is that people often have life-long eating challenges from the surgery without having changed anything mentally, emotionally or behaviorally. Bariatric surgery only enhanced their problems. Hypnosis for weight loss can make the difference for you that will allow you to safely and healthfully take the weight off and most importantly keep it off.

Weight-Loss Surgery Linked to Rise in Fracture Risk

HealthDay News, June 4, 2011: The risk of fractures after weight-loss surgery may be even higher than previously thought. Prior research has shown that people who undergo surgery to lose weight, such as gastric bypass, have an increased risk for bone fractures. One study, for example, showed a 1.8-fold increased risk of fracture compared to the general population. But further analysis showed the risk was actually closer to 2.3 times greater, according to the study to be presented Saturday at the Endocrine’s Society’s annual meeting in Boston.

Researchers noted the odds of breaking the feet or hands are even higher — about three times higher than normal. “A negative effect on bone health that may increase the risk of fractures is an important consideration for people considering bariatric surgery and those who have undergone bariatric surgery,” said study author Kelly Nakamura, medical student at Mayo Clinic College of Medicine in Rochester, Minn., in a news release.

Dr. Dean Ornish asks a great question in The Food Revolution. “I don’t understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it’s medically conservative to cut people open or put them on powerful cholesterol-lowering drugs for the rest of their lives.”
