Re: A small dilemma

Welcome to our online community

Take a look around and read through the conversations our members are having.

If you would like to participate, it is easy to join the Streamline Surgical family: simply click here to register.

Once you are a member of our online family, you can talk about whatever you want, from considering weight loss surgery to life post surgery. Simply browse the conversations to join one or start your own if you prefer.


It is entirely up to you what you say and do – it is your own private and confidential business.

However, I am not comfortable with any of you being made to feel guilty mostly due to the negative press and media response to wls. If you had a cataract operation to help you see, would you feel guilty telling people? Or a plaster cast for a broken leg?

Having wls is NOT cheating, and it isn’t a ‘cop out’ either. We have asked for surgical intervention to improve our health both now and in the future. Why should we feel bad about it? We all know how hard it is. We don’t wake up after the surgery all slim and healthy. We have to work at it for the rest of our lives and it can be a hard slog sometimes.

So, you say whatever you like to him – it is your business and yours alone. But please don’t feel ‘ashamed’ that you have asked for and been given medical help. Wls might help his wife enormously. They can see how much it has helped you and they might be truly grateful that you pointed them in the right direction.
