Question by : How come you aren’t supposed to have gastric bypass surgery if you have severe mental disorders?
“You do not have untreated depression or another major psychiatric disorder.” Why is this?? Could me being an unmedicated, documented Bipolar have any effect on me possibly getting this surgery?
Answer by ConcernedCitizen
They’re probably trying to avoid performing the surgery on people with untreated eating disorders. A compulsive overeater or bulimic might still overeat after the surgery, with disastrous results. You should ask your doctor about your specific condition.
