The Bariatric Surgery Process: Steps Along the Journey to a New You
Recovering from Weight Loss Surgery
Many changes will take place after surgery and the care teams at the Ascension Via Christi Weight Management Program will be with you from the moment you come out of surgery through the first few days following surgery and beyond.
Your surgeon will decide when you are ready to leave the hospital, based on your progress. Most patients spend one night in the hospital. Our care team will guide you through your personal changes post-surgery and provide you with the education to help you adjust to your new diet and lifestyle.
The Ascension Via Christi Program recommends the following:
- Follow recommended nutritional guidelines from pre-surgery class
- Join support groups
The courage you had to take the first step will guide you to your success and we will be right by your side. To learn more about the recovery process, register to attend a free seminar.
