Life After Surgery

Bariatric surgery will affect many aspects of your life. Surgery is only the first step towards improving your daily life after weight loss surgery. Your diet and lifestyle have to change in order for you to achieve the maximum benefits from the procedure. In order to maintain your weight loss after surgery, it is important and helpful to follow a few golden rules

At University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics, we encourage our patients to adopt an active lifestyle after weight loss surgery. Though exercise may be difficult for you now, increased physical activity will become a part of your daily life as you lose weight.
