The evaluation prior to surgery is not meant to prevent someone from having a life-changing surgery. It identifies risk-factors to having a successful surgical outcome. There are several psychological factors that could complicate recovery, and we are able to identify and provide guidance on how to overcome these obstacles. The evaluation is an important step in the surgical candidate's preparation and allows you to receive psychoeducation. After your evaluation you will have new stress management skills, ideas about your mental health, and feel confident in your upcoming surgery. It will consist of an interview and completion of some standardized testing forms.
Show up and be honest. The worry from candidates is they will be excluded for mentioning any stress or concerns. This is a great opportunity for you to ask questions, learn about new ways to manage stress, and not underestimate your ability to handle this weight-loss surgery opportunity. I want every candidate to reach their goals. Please check out this article for more information.
