Post surgery includes learning healthy habits about eating, exercises and a health lifestyle, says Dr. Anthony Gonzalez, Medical Director of Bariatric Surgery at South Miami Hospital. After a procedure, people have to understand that they act and eat differently, Dr. Gonzalez affirms and also adds people have to go to the gym and take time for themselves. Surgery can be a diabetes cure, but it depends on the patient's BMI, the operation and how long he has had the disease.
Dr. Anthony Gonzalez, Medical Director of Bariatric Surgery at South Miami Hospital, says he sees a lot of people with overweight and how it impacts their life. “I see a lot of depression, anxiety, panic attacks, social issues, marriages, friendships. All of the patients have to be adults with their social and psychological issues," he affirms. The diseases related to obesity can be seen in kids too, Dr. Gonzalez says. Diabetes and high blood pressure can be detected in kids ages 14 or above as well. Obesity can also contribute with bullying and discrimination in teens, he adds.
The safest way to lose weight is diet and exercise, but the problem is people canâ€™t continue that plan. They do it for a short period of time and they canâ€™t continue this routine, affirms Dr. Anthony Gonzalez, Medical Director of Bariatric Surgery at South Miami Hospital. He also explains there is a hormonal component with the surgery. “The gastric sleeve removes the hormone that causes hunger in the stomach," he says. Patients can forget to eat, throw up and get angry and irritate after a surgery. Danielle Babadzhanov gives her testimony like a patient

Others, because of the social or psychological issues," he says.
