There are certain things should understand about stomach stapling before making your decision:
• You will still need to make long term changes in the way you eat. There are certain foods you may not be able to eat again, as they will make you very sick after this surgery.
• Stomach stapling is a restrictive technique for managing obesity.
• The pouch limits the amount of food that can be consumed at one time. If you overeat, you can cause serious harm.
