Weight Loss Surgery KILLS! Link
The greedy corporate butchers will tell your that gastric bypass has a low mortality rate but the truth is 1 in 50 ghastly bypass victims die withing the first month of surgery and the surgeon/butcher who did it still gets paid! That is like bringing your Cadillac Escalade to the repair shop for an oil change and having them destroy it beyond all repair and then asking you to pay the bill. It's BULLSHIT!
Melinda Murphy of CBS News also reports that 1 in 50 die from gastric bypass. LINK
A grieving friend of a land whale who was slayed by a surgeon's/whaler's harpoon/scalpel mournfully responds, "One is 50 people who get gastric bypass surgery die within a month. That's a fact. I know that MDs will claim 1 in 200 and that the CDC claims 1 in 100 but the real number is 1 in 50.
I was at the funeral. I saw her grieving family. I am grieving for her too.
I need to ask why this barbaric procedure is even legal. WHY? Why is it legal or medically ethical to destroy a perfectly healthy digestive system?
Why is something so deadly allowed?
Why are fat people butchered in this barbaric manner?"
Weight Loss Surgery is Self-defeating and Self-perpetuating.
Think about it. Most of the people who get WLS are married women and most of them have kids. They don't want to be fat and they presumably don't want their kids to be fat. I can respect that but herein lies the problem. Once the fatling has been butchered she will have to eat lots of fat just to maintain say 120 pounds. Sure, true hyper-gluttons like Carnie Wilson can defeat gastric banding and gastric bypass but how many run of the mill fatlings have her fattitude? DAMN FEW! Formerly fat moms will be buying more fat food and as we know, FAT FATTENS BEST. She needs calorie dense food to maintain even a thinling body weight but her kids who still have healthy digestive systems don't need it. They will gain like one of Proud FA's gainers. Because she is a fat hater she will have her kids at the WLS slaughter house to have their digestive systems mangled.
Gastric Bypass and Why it is So Deadly
Complications of abdominal surgery alone
InfectionInfection of the incisions or of the inside of the abdomen (peritonitis, abscess) may occur, due to release of bacteria from the bowel during the operation. Nosocomial infection, such as pneumonia, bladder or kidney infections, and sepsis (bloodborne infection) are also possible. Effective short-term use of antibiotics, diligent respiratory therapy, and encouragement of activity within a few hours after surgery, can reduce the risks of infections.
Commentary from BFB's Fat Bastard: All surgery carries risk. The odd of getting an infection in a US hospital are 1 in 10. Add a surgery and that risk goes up even more. Add abdominal surgery and that risk increases even more. It gets worse. Add the fact that you are fat and you increase the risk even more. At this point the question is will you get an infection but how many.
HemorrhageMany blood vessels must be cut in order to divide the stomach and to move the bowel. Any of these may later begin bleeding, either into the abdomen (intra-abdominal hemorrhage), or into the bowel itself (gastrointestinal hemorrhage). Transfusions may be needed, and re-operation is sometimes necessary. Use of blood thinners, to prevent venous thromboembolic disease, actually increase the risk of hemorrhage.
You may bleed to death!
HerniaA hernia is an abnormal opening, either within the abdomen, or through the abdominal wall muscles. An internal hernia may result from surgery, and re-arrangement of the bowel, and is mainly significant as a cause of bowel obstruction. An incisional hernia occurs when a surgical incision does not heal well; the muscles of the abdomen separate and allow protrusion of a sac-like membrane, which may contain bowel or other abdominal contents, and which can be painful and unsightly. The risk of abdominal wall hernia is markedly decreased in laparoscopic surgery.
Many good surgeons call laparoscopic surgery operating with chop sticks.
Bowel obstructionAbdominal surgery always results in some scarring of the bowel, called adhesions. A hernia, either internal or through the abdominal wall, may also result. When bowel becomes trapped by adhesions or a hernia, it may become kinked and obstructed, sometimes many years after the original procedure. Usually an operation is necessary to correct this problem.
Venous thromboembolismAny injury, such as a surgical operation, causes the body to increase the coagulation of the blood. Simultaneously, activity may be reduced. There is an increased probability of formation of clots in the veins of the legs, or sometimes the pelvis, particularly in the morbidly obese patient. A clot which breaks free and floats to the lungs is called a pulmonary embolus, a very dangerous occurrence. Commonly, blood thinners are administered before surgery , to reduce the probability of this type of complication.
Complications of gastric bypass
Anastomotic leakageAn anastomosis is a surgical connection between the stomach and bowel, or between two parts of the bowel. The surgeon attempts to create a water-tight connection by connecting the two organs with either staples or sutures, either of which actually makes a hole in the bowel wall. The surgeon will rely on the healing power of the body, and its ability to create a seal like a self-sealing tire, to succeed with the surgery. If that seal fails to form, for any reason, fluid from within the gastrointestinal tract can leak into the sterile abdominal cavity and give rise to infection and abscess formation. Leakage of an anastomosis can occur in about 2% of gastric bypass procedures, usually at the stomach-bowel connection. Sometimes leakage can be treated with antibiotics, and sometimes it will require immediate re-operation. It is usually safer to re-operate if an infection cannot be definitely controlled immediately.
BFB commentary from Fat Bastard
This is a fucking surgical staple! This is supposed to stop leakage!
This is where the put the fucking staples.
Anastomotic strictureAs the anastomosis heals, it forms scar tissue, which naturally tends to shrink ("contract") over time, making the opening smaller. This is called a "stricture". Usually, the passage of food through an anastomosis will keep it stretched open, but if the inflammation and healing process outpaces the stretching process, scarring may make the opening so small that even liquids can no longer pass through it. The solution is a procedure called gastroendoscopy, and stretching of the connection by inflating a balloon inside it. Sometimes this manipulation may have to be performed more than once to achieve lasting correction.
Anastomotic ulcerUlceration of the anastomosis occurs in 16% of patients
Normally, the pyloric valve at the lower end of the stomach regulates the release of food into the bowel. When the Gastric Bypass patient eats a sugary food, the sugar passes rapidly into the bowel, where it gives rise to a physiological reaction called dumping syndrome. The body will flood the intestines in an attempt to dilute the sugars. An affected person may feel their heart beating rapidly and forcefully, break into a cold sweat, get a feeling of butterflies in the stomach, and may have a "sky is falling" type of anxiety. He/she usually has to lie down, and could be very uncomfortable for about 30 to 45 minutes. Diarrhea may then follow.
Weight Loss Surgery Increases Suicide and Heart Disease Risk! LINK
Stefphanie Todd MD of ABC New Medical Unit reports that WLS increases suicides.
Weight of the Evidence
In this study, researchers examined records of 16,683 bariatric surgeries among Pennsylvania residents. They found a substantial number of excess deaths attributed to both suicide and heart disease after surgery.
The death rates appear higher in men than in women, and increase with age, especially among those over 65 years of age. As post surgery time increased, so did the death rates, with heart disease topping the list.
"This study underscores that coronary heart disease is the leading cause of death in these extremely obese patients," said Dr. Anita Courcoulas, chief of minimally invasive bariatric and general surgery at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
BFB commentary: The reasons for this is simple. Food is love and when you take way the think you love and the thing that loves you the most you will become depressed.
Food is a glutton's true love. We don't just eat to live, we live to eat. The more we eat the happier we are. Take away a concert pianist's hands or a or a ballet dancer's legs and they too may kill themselves.
Proud FA and I can tell you that fat indeed fattens best but gluttons do not live by fat alone so if you have weight loss surgery you will never be able to get enough calories eating non fat foods to get enough calories to even sustain the metabolic needs of a thinling let alone the whopping needs of a big fat glutton. Butchered gluttons then mostly take in artery clogging saturated fats because they are the tastiest but they are also the deadliest. As a result of all that vein goo and not enough essential nutrients the patient is worse off health wise then he would be if he remained fat - much worse off!
Not having enough carbs makes you nuts. Because WLS leave not room for carbs that are over two times bulkier than fats butchered gluttons are only able to get the calories they need from fat. When that goes on for more than a few weeks the glutton will develop ketogenic psychosis.
