Surgery's Aftermath

Last night ABC's Nightline featured the story of a 16-year-old girl's struggle with obesity and the aftermath of her gastric bypass surgery. The most striking thing wasn't how much weight she lost (she did lose over 100 lbs in 6 months), but how much she regretted having to live with a stomach of the size of a walnut for the rest of her life. Before the surgery, foods were her best friend. She found comfort and refuge in foods. In her own words, "Food was my best friend". Losing her best friend threw her into deep depression although she continued to lose weight.

It was a bitter-sweet story. It was good that she became a lot thinner. But she seemed still at lost about where else she could find refuge when she needed it.
