detailed results
strengths & concerns
In order to give Sam the best chance to cope with life after surgery, it is essential to make sure that he is mentally and emotionally prepared for this procedure. This is the goal of this screening tool: To offer insight into his strengths, and advise you on concerns that will need to be dealt with in order to enhance his post-operative recovery. Even if Sam's results are not very positive, it doesn't mean that he will never be able to undergo surgery. It is simply an indication that he will need to take some time to focus on improving his psychological self before he tackles his physical self.

Overall Results

At this time, it is recommended that weight loss surgery be performed only after addressing serious concerns about Sam's ability to handle the psychological challenges that this procedure entails. The medical staff should evaluate these results and guide him in finding a qualified counselor to help him develop certain traits and skills that can help improve his chances of success. Once his specific problems are addressed, he may be better prepared for surgery. It is absolutely essential for patients undergoing weight loss surgery to be in a healthy state of mind, as this is a life-changing procedure that cannot be taken lightly.
