As you can imagine, there is some hesitation when considering weight loss surgery and one of the most common concerns we hear from our patients is about what they will be able to eat, especially at family events like Christmas.
“Will I be able to eat the same things?”Every patient, ever
“What should I say to my family?”
“Will it seem rude to not eat as much as everyone else?”
These are all familiar questions that our patient care team deal with regularly and the answer is generally that yes, you will be able to enjoy the same festive foods provided you stick to a few guidelines. But you don’t need to take our word for it, you can hear it from people who’ve gone through it already. That’s why, at our last success stories day, we asked everyone about how they now cope with Christmas after their gastric bands, sleeves and bypasses.
