Weight Loss Surgery For Dummies

Customer Reviews:

Everything you ever wanted to know about WLS and more

By K. A. Mills - September 17, 2006

I HIGHLY recommend this book for anyone considering weight loss surgery. It will become a valuable tool in helping you make your decision. Should you decide to have WLS, it will guide you through the numerous tests and insurance hurdles, the hospital stay, potential complications, post-op diet, and post-op emotions.

I read this book three times on my journey towards WLS. I'm now a couple of weeks post-op and continue consulting it several times a week.

One of the authors is the surgeon that Al Roker selected for his weight-loss surgery (before she had written this book). Roker wrote a short intro to the book that explains how he extensively researched WLS and interviewed eight surgeons before selecting Dr. Kurian. Roker has the money to go to any surgeon in the world, and the fact that he chose Dr. Kurian among the eight that he interviewed emphasizes Kurian's expertise in the field.

A MUST HAVE FOR ANYONE THINKING ABOUT THIS SURGERY!!!

By A. L. Sadberry "foxy_fattay_brownsugar" - December 15, 2005

I have researched most info on line...this book would have saved me the time and effort spent scouring the web for input. I love the layout of this book, taking time to comment on each stage in the process of changing your life. Even a section on "Is this surgery right for you". I call it my wls bible. I was pleasently surprised to find a foreword by Al Roker. I'm really excited about the course I am choosing for myself and this book is a wonderful guide to help me along the way. It should be required reading for anyone thinking about making this huge life changing decision.

Comprehensive information, great reference pre & post op

By L. Jensen - August 1, 2005

I purchased this book shortly before my surgery. I was impressed with how thorough it was. It re-verified the information that I had received from my surgeon and local support group but also gave ideas for many recipes and discussed the non-physical changes more in depth than even my surgeon's handbook did.
