Temporary Memory Loss (Transient Global Amnesia)
Surgical procedures for obesity may be appropriate for some dangerously obese people, and they may reduce heart problems and many of the risks associated with obesity. These risks include high blood pressure, sleep apnea, and diabetes. In fact, surgery provides much greater control of weight and diabetes than nonsurgical weight-loss methods. Studies are reporting significant reductions in diabetes, and the need for diabetic medications, after surgery. Other medical conditions that often improve after surgery include heartburn, arthritis, and other joint and circulation problems. The care of patients undergoing bariatric surgery, before and after surgery, requires specialized expertise and facilities. Studies have shown that the likelihood of complications is significantly associated with the experience of the surgeon and staff. Bariatric surgeries produce weight loss through one of two approaches: * Restrictive Banding Procedures. These procedures restrict the amount of food by closing off parts of the stomach with bands. * Malabsorptive Bypass Procedures. This approach restricts the amount of food and also reduces absorption by using a bypass of parts of the intestine. The malabsorptive procedures are more successful in achieving weight loss than the banding approach, but they carry a greater ...Read more

Clarify?: There's a "pop" notion that people, especially children, typically forget horrible experiences, and that these can be recovered by hypnosis and suggestive interviewing. Most physicians believe this is not true. What settled it for me is a series of about 100 kids, each of whom saw dad kill mom at a young age. Every one of them remembered in detail. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
