Did the Doctor Tell You Everything?

When the patient is properly prepared for the change in lifestyle required to make the stomach stapling procedure a success, the procedure is a blessing for people who have struggled with obesity. But much can go wrong, during the surgery itself and during the recovery period and beyond if the patient hasn't been fully warned and prepared by the physician.
