I can handle the physical after effects of my operation. However, sometimes I just feel low. Am I the only one who has these psychological difficulties?
Bruno Sgromo
No you are not. We have learned from our experience with bariatric operations that psychological support is an important part of the recovery process. This might be the topic of a future video clip.

Could the web site have a Q&A page?
Q&A and Chat Room pages on web sites can be seen as an outlet by disgruntled, or mischievous individuals. OOSO cannot be a platform for an open forum where this might occur. It could damage our reputation and the feelings of others. However, we agree a Q&A page that shares positive solutions to questions submitted by our readers could be very worthwhile.. We will run this facility for a trial period to see how it goes.
