Anyone who is considering having bypass surgery for weight loss may want to weigh the pros and cons before making such a commitment.
Today I’ll discuss some of the benefits and risks involved. However, I recommend having an ongoing dialogue with your physician if you’re thinking about moving forward with it. Your physician may also recommend that you speak to another specialist before making your decision.
I mentioned BMI, or body mass index, as an approximate way to determine the line between overweight and obese. This NIH webpage explains BMI and allows you to calculate your own.
