Angry Interesting article regarding wls

Hi Ladies,

I subscribe to the Mayo Clinic Newsletter and they recently posted a very interesting article on WLS. It provides a good, factual look at wls.


Hope you find it interesting.

thanks for the info, jenny... it's a good review.. i only wish that they also address the profound psychological issues that many people have after the surgery: head hunger, coping with their food demons, the need for surgical aftercare and support.

i'm finding that many people view this as a quick fix and they don't need to change their HEADS. not true!!!

thanks for watching out for us...

and for all your support over the past couple of years.
