I was recently sent a book by author Teresa Wainwright; Weight Loss Surgery: All the Essential Information Your Doctor Doesn’t Have Time to Tell You! I wanted to write up a review about it because I found it so well written and such a fun read!
Ms. Wainwright starts out her book with many reasons we find ourself in need of WLS. The next couple of chapters touch on what types of surgeries there are, what to expect from each one, as well as some considerations such as family planning, and smoking, etc.
Next, she talks about what to expect on the day of, as well as the first few weeks post-op. “Okay, I’ve read all this before” you might be thinking. But, one of the things that sucked me right in was the way her book read like I was chatting with a friend. Not only that, the next chapters are hilarious and filled with stories from other patients. I especially loved chapter 7 “The Gross Stuff” where I LOL’d plenty as people talked about loose skin, horrible dragon breath, gas woes, even some “oops” bathroom accidents.
If you’ve got a sense of humor, as well as want to learn a few things about weight loss surgery, and hear stories from many other patients, I can’t recommend this book enough! It was so much fun to read, had me cracking up, and was full of great information!
You can pick up your copy on Amazon, available in paperback or on Kindle.
