this module tests your knowledge of physical and emotional changes due to bariatric surgery

Having an unrealistic expectation about how life will change after surgery in regards to your weight coming of easy and quickly without much effort can lead to emotional ups and downs.


Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) does not focus on the concept that the way people think affects how they feel and what they do.


Emotional ups and downs, body image adjustments and relationship changes are common after weight loss surgery.


Your significant other may feel insecure with your weight loss.


The only body image adjustment you will have is to the change in clothing sizes.


Non-hunger needs can not be replaced by taking a walk, calling a friend, or relaxation techniques.


Support groups are only necessary for patients before surgery (pre-op).


Making lifestyle changes starts with replacing the concept of dieting with a permanent way of eating.


Food journaling is a tool just used to keep track of how many calories you have consumed each day.


The benefits to bariatric surgery include physical changes and psychological changes.
