 Nerve damage may occur after weight-loss surgery

Gastric banding surgery which limits intake amount without causing
malabsorption is not associated with the deficiencies that result in
neuropathic problems described in you cited article about gastric
bypass surgery.

However, serious life-threatening peri- and post-operative
complications can still occur even with banding so that it remains
wiser to simply befriend the hunger that arises from eating less down
to the right amount in order to lose the VAT and possibly cure the
type-2 diabetes:


This Approach now comes with a million-dollar guarantee:


May GOD bless you in HIS mighty way making you hungrier than ever.

Prayerfully in Jesus' awesome love,

> nutrients, a new study shows.

> While correcting these deficiencies can help patients, some are left
> with permanent damage, Dr. Katalin Juhasz-Pocsine and colleagues from
> the University of Arkansas for Medical Science in Little Rock report.
> Symptoms can strike many years after the surgery, they note, possibly
> because stores of certain nutrients may take this long to become
> depleted.

> Some patients begin hallucinating and lose the ability to walk a
> couple of months after the surgery, Juhasz-Pocsine explained in an
> interview with Reuters Health. "After resolution of the acute symptoms
> they are quite weak, and it takes around a year to recover.

> Some are permanently disabled," she said. Among patients who develop
> symptoms years down the road, the spinal cord typically is affected,
> resulting in falling, extreme coordination and gait problems, and
> severe spasticity, and some individuals need to use wheelchairs
