My guests are both an important part of the “team” at the Bariatric Center of Excellence at Saint Agnes Hospital that helps patients have a successful outcome to their weight loss surgery.  Why weight loss surgery?  It may be the best option for an obese patient to start on the path to a healthy lifestyle.  Cathy and Dawn explained many facts of interest for someone considering bariatric surgery from how to find out what you need to make a decision about having the surgery, to what types of surgery are available, things you must do to prepare yourself – physically, emotionally and mentally – for pre- and post-surgery.  Most importantly, they talked about the ultimate commitment that needs to be made for a major lifestyle change that determines the long-term success of bariatric surgery.   Is it worth it?  They say “yes” – it can be life changing and life saving for so many people who desire a healthier life and a quality life.

 

Guests: Cathy Carr-Dadin, RN, Certified Bariatric Nurse and Bariatric Services Coordinator at Saint Agnes Hospital

 

Dawn O’Meally, LCSW-C, who conducts mental health evaluations for various bariatric surgeons and facilitates support group meetings at Saint Agnes Hospital.
