Understanding Relapse and Regain on the Bariatric Journey 

Mental, Retreat

Saturday May 7th | 3:15-4:00

Obesity is a chronic disease with no cure. Although bariatric surgery patients have chosen the best tool to treat their disease of obesity, it is normal that they will  experience a relapse of symptoms at some point on their journey. In this workshop, patients will understand that relapse and regain is not a character issue but simply a “flare” of their symptoms. They will learn how to recognize relapse early and most importantly how to address it, and: 

  • How to gain healthy understanding of relapse and regain as a normal symptom of their chronic disease of obesity and NOT a character issue 
  • Identify early signs of relapse and regain in their own life 
  • Learn health strategies to address relapse
