Re: Personality and other changes after gastric bypass surgery?

You two are not alone. Without proper counseling or emotional support before and after surgery, there are many pitfalls to the surgery itself becoming a catalyst for the onset of such issues, as you both describe.

I have a friend who is facing the early stages of other negative effects of bypass surgery her husband is having, and I really feel for all of you. I wish each of you the best while trying to cope with this huge elephant in the room. Please protect yourself from the out lash this can have on a family and relationships. I would suggest counseling if it not to late, as the potential for positive outcomes are determined on the adjustment period being clearly understood and rules in place to avoid this transfer of addictions.

Wishing well to all...
