Have you ever thought about taking a stroll in the park, paddling a kayak, or going for a swim? Maybe you have, but then dismiss the idea because your weight keeps you from enjoying places like Franklin D. Roosevelt State Park in Westchester. Imagine how you would feel if you could dive into the park’s double-sized Olympic swimming pool, paddle a kayak across Mohansic Lake, or hike the miles of wooded trails through the park.
If your weight is preventing you from enjoying life in Westchester, even after weight-reduction surgery, you’re not alone. A study published in Gastroenterology Research and Practice found that about 10 percent of people who undergo surgery to lose weight will require a secondary surgery to correct a problem or further promote long-term weight loss. Your diet and exercise habits after bariatric surgery play a major part in losing weight and keeping it off. But sometimes Revisional Bariatric Surgery is recommended to help patients get better results.
