The Frightful Truth About Weight Loss Surgery

More on the Actual Gastric Bypass Death Rate

A helpful blog reader send me the full PDF version of the study of the long term outcome of weight loss surgery in Pennsylvania which was cited in the previous blog post.

Death Rates and Causes of Death after Bariatric Surgery for Pennsylvania Residents 1994-2004. Bennet I. Omalu et. al. Arch Surg. 2007;142(10):923-928.

Typically when a surgeon tells you the mortality rate for a surgery, he tells you only the percentage of those who died within 30 days of the surgery. This study looked both at the actual deaths within 30 days after surgery and in the death rate in the years after the surgery.

As the study reports, in the 16,683 people who had weight loss surgery in Pennsylvania between 1994 and 2004, .9% died within 30 days of the surgery. That translated into 150 people.

But wait. That statistic was taken from the group as a whole. When the population is broken out by age, a much scarier statistic emerges: In the age group 55-64 1.53% were dead within 30 days, or 15 out of 1000 who had the surgery. And for the age group of those 65 and older, 3.1% died within 30 days, or 3 out of every hundred.

But that was just in the first 30 days after surgery. The study looked at time since surgery, and with each passing year the number of dead grew greater.

By one year after surgery, 2.1% of the group had died. (Twenty-one out of every thousand.) By two years, 2.9%. Then things got worse. Three years after they had had the surgery, 3.7% were dead. By four years, 4.8% and by five years, 6.4%.

The authors of this study remark that they did not follow up on the results of subsequent surgeries. But other studies have found that many people who have weight loss surgery require one or more follow up surgeries in the years that follow the initial surgery. It is likely that each subsequent surgery raises the risk of further complications and death.

Another chilling statistic emerged from the analysis of this data. In a population of the same size of the same demographic make up, the expected number of suicides would be 2. However, in this group, there were 16 suicides and an additional 14 drug overdose deaths. Most of these occurred at least one year after the surgery. The authors of the study speculate that many of the drug overdoses were probably suicides too, and flag this as a serious problem that requires more study.

What was missing in this study was one important piece of information: the weight loss achieved by the people who died. The authors assume that the high death rate is due to health conditions contracted while obese or due to weight regain. But this is only speculation. They did not review any statistics about the size of the people at death, which would have been difficult to do since only about 1/3 of these victims were autopsied.

But based on stories I have heard and cases like Mrs. Yamin's it may be premature to assume that the deaths were caused by obesity. Mrs. Yamin weighed 100 lbs at her death. Instead deaths may have been caused by long term malnutrition--i.e. starvation. Though the most common cause of death listed on death certificates after a year was cardiovascular (i.e. heart attacks) that is what kills a lot of people with anorexia and starvation. When the body is no longer absorbing nutrients the electrolytes can become dangerously unbalanced and that causes heart attack. Without independent autopsies, it is very hard to know what really happened.

Doctors don't like autopsies, because a patient who didn't have an autopsy is a patient whose family is going to have a much tougher time suing for malpractice. So if a heart stops beating, well, write it down as cardiovascular death, and since the person was once fat, who is going to challenge it?

But folks, please take these statistics seriously. And please note that the things that killed people within the first 30 days were NOT necessarily caused by obesity. Among the biggest killers were pulmonary embolism (20.7% of all early deaths)and sepsis (i.e. infection that spread through the body causing organ shut down). Sepsis killed 11.3% of those who died in the first 30 days. One out of four died of vaguely specified "therapeutic complications" which is a catchall term entered on the death certificate that included things like sepsis, bleeding, ruptured surgical wounds, etc.

One last word. Many people erroneously believe that before a doctor can perform a specific kind of surgery, that surgery must undergo the same kind of safety testing and approval process that drugs get. This is not true. Surgeons can perform any surgery they want, as long as they are licensed surgeons.

There is only one limitation on what kind of surgeries are performed: whether or not insurance companies will pay for them. Most insurers won't pay for operations that have a poor safety record--once they have enough data to know that the operation isn't safe.

But weight loss surgery is usually NOT paid for by insurers. Like plastic surgery, it is a surgery that patients pay for out of their own funds. This is one reason surgeons promote it so strongly. There are no forms for them to to fill out, no limit on what they can charge, and most importantly, no evaluating the patient's suitability for the surgery by pesky insurance review boards. All the doctor has to do is sell the patient on the operation, and the fun can begin.

So don't let yourself become a victim of a surgeon who has found a dandy way to make himself a multi-millionaire. And don't trust that the doctor who stands to make $25,000 for a few hours of work has your welfare in mind when he assures you that a surgery is no more dangerous than crossing the street. Remember, surgeons rarely track the outcome of their surgeries beyond six weeks. But as the Pennsylvania study suggests weight loss surgery keeps on killing for years after the initial surgery.

Don't let yourself become a victim.

Avoid Weight Loss Surgery By Using Subliminal Appetite Control

If you are willing to pay some money grubbing scumbag surgeon to wreck your digestive system so that you can't properly digest your food and have a lifetime of suffering you have to be out of your mind. Weight loss surgery is dangerous regardless of what procedure they talk you into getting.

Watch this video often and watch it full screen on Youtube.

You don't need to do this. You can lose weight without the dangers of WLS. You are fat because the food and medical industries have use the media to program your brain with false hunger cues and cravings for bad bad bad food.

The Real Reasons You Are Fat

In an attempt to figure out why 75% of Americans are overweight and obese I decided to see what the skinniest people were doing so I read all the bullshit on the pro-ana sites and I found that 99.999% of the people on the pro-ana sites were bulimics. They call themselves mias. Mias really are fat girls who vomit so that they can eat again and again. Other BULLimics will exercise to excess, while others use laxatives.

There is one main reason for why you eat too much. Your scumbag doctors know this. The so called experts know this. The food industry knows this and I know this. I'm going to tell you why YOU ARE A GLUTTON! You may not have started out life wanting to be a glutton same as a drunk or a junkie does not aspire to be a drunk or a junkie but if you know any drunks or junkies you know what a pain in the ass they are. I see you in Walmart in your fatty scooters blocking the aisles and filling up the baskets with all sorts of unhealthy foods designed for hedonistic greedy gluttons.

I left the following comment on an eating disorder blog.

Clearly, food is not the only issue here and it is not the issue with most fatlings. The problem is fattitude which is a combination of neurology, pride, lust, sloth, gluttony, and ego. Like shameless fatlings, mias, overly use personal pronouns. 

As to sugar, sugar is sugar is sugar. Sugar in not the bad guy. Sugar in all its forms has been around for ever. Sugar is not making people fat. Caloric poisoning is making people fat and keeping them fat. If you are fat the immutable truth is this. YOU ARE A TOTALLY SELF INDULGENT GLUTTON. If you are a mia you are a guilt-ridden self-indulgent glutton who pukes or exercises so that you can EAT. 

The fact that you gluttons and hedonists have remained ignorant of the following proves that I am correct when it comes to your behavior.

FACT: If a sedentary female or you consume 2000 calories per day the most weight you can maintain is 135 pounds. If you are moderately active you will maintain 125 - 130 pounds. If you exercise such as jogging, long walks, swimming, spinning, aerobics you will only be able to maintain 105 - 110. 

Face it girls, a big part of this is a character issue. If you and other fatlings cared enough about society and your loved ones weight would not be an issue. BUT in your defense: You have had a lot of help getting there. Food today is designed to be addicted and you girls are part of the self-indulgent me generation. Fat girls are particularly disgusting in that regard. 

If you want to end this insanity, destroy your egos. 


Now I will expand on my comments.

If you weigh in at 300 pounds you are eating around 5000 calories per day in order to maintain that much weight. That is more than twice as much as a normal human being requires. OINK! Are you so weak and self-indulgent that you can't behave responsibly when it comes to food or is it a really a matter of won't? It's a matter of won't and you know it and your scumbag MD knows it and the industries that get fat making you fat know this but you are so egomaniacal that you won't admit it. The fact is, you are a big fat pawn, a mindless eating machine and a greedy hedonistic glutton. OINK! The facts all support one conclusion and that conclusion is... YOU ARE A GREEDY GLUTTON! Explain why this is not true. Explain why you think your behavior regarding your eating habits is responsible.

I have also gone onto weight loss forums to learn more about fatlings. Mostly what I found was that the few successful dieters did it for the people they loved. These people loved their loved ones more than food. Apparently most fatlings love food more than just about anything else. It's either that or their lust for food is stronger than their love for family and social and personal responsibility.

If you go through with weight loss surgery, you are a fool. You may get lucky and not die in the process. You may get lucky and the ongoing side effects such as; malabsorption of essential nutrients, dumping syndrome, vomiting, constant pain, may not be as troublesome for you as they are for the majority of weight loss surgery victims.

You can continue to be a victim of your own behavior or you can do the following:

1. Multiply your weight by 10. That is your approximate BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate).

2. Eat at that level of calories every day. If you do you will lose 1 pound of weight per 100 pounds of body weight.

3. After a month, recalculate your new body weight and adjust your allowance of daily calories accordingly.

4. Repeat this process until you are at a healthy weight. A healthy weight is IMO a BMI of 18 - 23 for most people. BMI means Body Mass Index.

Current BMI charts say that 24.9 is a healthy weight. This is not true, especially if you are Asian. Women especially look best and are healthiest at low a BMI.

Nearly As Evil As God?

American doctors are evil for the most part and in spite of there being some exceptions all they care about is exploiting the maladies God has inflicted upon the human race. Many diseases have no prevention and no cure. Some diseases can be prevented and cured. Obesity is one of them. Doctors and their FDA run industry cash in big time on the fact that you are fat. When a doctor sees a fatling he doesn't see a human being he sees dollar signs. Fat people mean huge profits for the medical industry and the white coat mafia. Diabetes CHA CHING! Heart disease CHA CHING, High blood pressure CHA CHING!  Sleep apnea CHA CHING.... the list goes on.

You can stop being fat simply by eating less and moving more. Do it! "How" the ignorant fatling asks.  It's simple. Calculate your basal metabolic rate by multiplying your weight  times 10. If you are 300 pounds then your BMR is 3000 calories per day. If you eat 3000 calories per day you will lose about 3 pounds per week. As your body weight drops recalculate your BMR and eat at that level. This is a slow process but slow and steady wins the race and it is much safer than much easier than some crash diet some fuck wad doctor would prescribe.

obese person

Like it of not you are a glutton and you received a lot of help from the food and medical industry to become and stay a glutton.

Like God, doctors suck but the good new is, doctors have shorter life spans than the general population because they believe their own bullshit. God also has will die when the Higgs Boson disintegrates.

Now you have the tool to not be fat and it you fail to act,,, FUCK YOU and DIE SOON!
