Slowly, it is. It stretches. Look up how many people go right back to where they were. And, your relative isn't interested in an honest effort, you said that. Your post indicates you misunderstand the procedure entirely to think it forces the weight loss, which it does not.I would think getting the surgery would imply one intends to make an honest effort to lose weight. And I don't think it's all that easy not to comply with a smaller stomach, is it?
My sister started off with the tablespoon portions, and then over a period of just a few years ate more and more until she ate exactly what she had before, and it killed her because of the surgery. Her non-altered stomach could have continued to handle it.
People who do it right are in a life long struggle to not be malnourished, is why I caution anyone I know against it. My friend listened to me and opted for the balloon instead, and she is doing great post-balloon because she has the willpower.
HC claims medical expertise on all things medical w/o basis. If I believed her posts, she'd have 47 different jobs at the same time. No matter the topic, she claims that is what she personally deals with everyday. And she has posted 'fact' after fact that is patently untrue and easily disproven.
