Obesity Surgery, Greed and US FDA Approval
Any surgey is never without risk and should only be the last option. Recently obesity surgery was recommended by a panel of US Food and Drug Administration experts and they said that even non-severely obese patients could use the Lap-Band to help them lose weight.
A bad news for overweight people and a good news for greedy companies and weight loss surgeons involved in obesity surgery. The FDA panel voted 8-2 on recommending usage to people who are still overweight, but not obese.
When something can be treated naturally and safely then why to spend money and take risk???
It appears that greed is taking over the mind of people in the noble profession like medicine in collobarion with surgical companies.
List of problems and complications after the weight loss surgery operation are endless. After effect of weight loss surgery may include Hernia: An internal hernia may result from surgery, which can be really painful. Around 10-20 percent of patients undergoing stomach bypass require follow-up operations to correct complications. Bleeding: Many blood vessels need to be cut in order to divide the stomach and to move the bowel. Any of these vessel may later begin bleeding.
Not only that you can never live your life fully.
