Support After Surgery
After surgery, you’ll be on the path to a happier, healthier you. And your team at Surgical Healing Arts Center will provide help at every bend in the road.
Your journey to a healthier life after bariatric surgery requires a fundamental change in the way you will live the rest of your life. Your body and mind will take a while to adjust, but changes start to happen even before you leave your hospital room. At Surgical Healing Arts, your professional team will teach you how to live with the surgical option you chose. These committed professionals will not only teach you basics of what happens during and after surgery, but also new habits you’ll need to adopt in order to achieve and maintain your new healthy weight. In addition to classes, we’ll give you written guidelines to follow and provide both personalized and group support for life.
Back Home Again
Most patients are ready and able to go home the day after surgery. We’ll help prepare you for that day by teaching you about the recovery process, the right fluid intake to maintain and how to avoid post-surgery complications. Your Surgical Healing Arts support team will make sure you move through your recovery in a healthy way.
Come Back to See Us
Please make plans to attend our support group meetings after surgery. You will be surprised how much you have in common with other patients who’ve had weight-loss surgery and the encouragement and support they’ll give you. A circle of compassionate, understanding people is a key component of your new, healthy life.
In addition to emotional support, we’ll schedule visits for you with the surgeons and nurse practitioner to monitor your progress and make sure you’re losing weight in a healthy way. Once you’re through the initial weight-loss phase, you’ll only need a checkup once or twice a year to assure you’re in good health and your weight stays at a healthy level.
