Dr. Shyam Dahiya describes if a woman can exercise and interact with her kids on a more active level after having bariatric surgery.

Dr. Dahiya:
Can you exercise? Not only that can you, but you absolutely need to. It is a part of the weight loss. The procedure in itself is going to help you consume less calories, but it’s not going to be a do all. How soon? From day one we get the patient up, or the person I should say, on the same day, not only for the exercise level, but for the prevention of the circulation, the blood clots, and so forth. And as you go, as you are comfortable, you keep adding more and more and more from walking, to whatever else you want to do.

Well, the mom would be able to interact with, at a not only active level, she will be around longer to take care of them. She can go to the ballpark. She doesn’t have to now have a wheelchair to take her to the soccer game that the child is playing for AYSO or, you know, all of these things. You know, some of them you can put in words, and some of them you can’t even put in the words. But basically it’s a day and light’s difference.
