A clinical session with a lot more depth
Changing a lifetime of habits can be very challenging, so it is not uncommon to have a minimum of 2-3 sessions to prepare for you upcoming surgery, and ease the transition into your whole new way of eating.
Before the operation, Kathy will go into more depth then the general session as this is life changing surgery. Factors such as past life events or patterns of behaviours that might have led to weight gain are covered so strategies can be put in place early and ensure you are well prepared.
Post-operation, Kathy will guide and support you through the textural stages to ensure adequate nutrition for a speedy recovery, provide food/meal ideas and find strategies to overcome any eating challenges. Reviews usually occur at 2, 4 and 6-10 weeks post-op.
Many patients benefit from having accountability, an impartial ear, blood tests checked for nutritional deficiencies and being provided with accurate evidence to clarify any confusion read on forums. As a result, Kathy continues to follow patients up for 5 years to ensure they are reaching their weight loss goals, avoiding nutritional problems and achieving the very best outcome.
