WLS surgery complications



The American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery created a PDF poster describing emergency room treatment procedures for complications from weight loss surgery.

I'm glad that the poster exists, but it's scary to see all the things that can go wrong. Also I know it doesn't cover everything (such as nutritional deficiencies).

I wonder how many people considering WLS are given this information.
