Weather disasters and other emergencies can happen anywhere at any time -- so it’s important for weight-loss surgery post-op patients to make the necessary preparations in the event of a catastrophe to avoid any adverse health complications that could occur as a result of failing to have the right supplies on hand.
The American Red Cross recommends that all individuals keep certain supplies on hand for emergencies, such as a first aid kit, water, food, flashlights, batteries, medications, cell phones, blankets, and maps -- but the list of essentials is much different for weight-loss patients who have just had bariatric surgery.
Below are emergency essentials you’ll need for each phase of your weight-loss surgery recovery program.
Malley Surgical Weight Loss Center encourages that weight-loss patients use Truestar vitamins and supplements to maintain a healthy body weight, promote weight loss, and provide their bodies with the minerals and nutrients needed to stay healthy and energetic.
