The Inconvenient Truth About Weight Loss Surgery
For fat people, Weight Loss Surgery is often touted as the magic bullet that will solve everything from sickness to single-ness to stigmatization. I’ve been told by doctors that I should have the surgery to cure my Type 2 Diabetes (which I do not have), my high blood pressure (which I do not have), my mobility problems (which I do not have), and just to make things easier “dating-wise” — which is not an issue since I’m in a long-term relationship with someone who loves me as I am, and not based on how my body could look after surgical manipulation.
