Weight Loss Surgery Slideshow
Byroney_WebMD_Staff posted:
I know weight loss surgeries are not the right choice for everyone. Each person needs to make that choice with his or her medical expert. However, I also know we have people who come here talking about different types of weight loss surgeries, such as Lap Band, stapling, etc.

So here's a Weight Loss Surgery Slideshow that gives you a rundown on what happens with each type. It also talks about what goes on before and after surgery.

While the animations are cool, they did take several seconds to load for me, so be patient. Make sure to have your sound up, because there is narration during the animated portions.

Also be aware that while they don't show any actual surgeries (they're all animations), they may not be something you want to watch if you're sensitive to depictions of medical procedures.

Let me know your thoughts about this as a useful resource.

Pounds off since December 2009= 20lbs. At this rate, it will be years until I reach goal, so I hope you don't mind having me around for a spell.
