My mom just left for surgery, she’s getting a weight loss sleeve done. I’m a nervous wreck until about 3pm, I have been dreading this day. My problem is how the doctors let her do it so easily, they did not recommend a diet or anything. She has arthritis and high blood pressure, I understand weight loss would help. But I’m not understanding how they wouldn’t tell her to diet but just schedule a surgery.
I guess I feel it was a bit more money hungry, than what could work nauturally. I feel some type of way, when I was pregnant I had to switch doctors because he kept pushing me to get a scheduled c-seciton. I actually heard him say surgery makes more money and takes less time, -__- . So I am a bit worried about her and her procedure, She’s also in her 60’s I know at this age she might not heal well.
I have read a lot on the surgery I just have never seen it scheduled so quickly. Guess I just needed to get that out, she didn’t really want to talk about it much. She seems like she’s going on vacation rather than having surgery lol.
