If You Had Bariatric Surgery
If you had bariatric surgery, you should have first failed at dieting:
If you failed at dieting by following an expert's advice, it is most likely that you failed because the diet you were given was flawed.
Expert's diets are flawed in one main way - they are too extreme. So extreme, that no one can follow them.
There are several different ways in which expert diets achieve their extremeness.
To understand them, you have to look to the physiology and starvation literature and recognize that the diet literature is corrupt.

Bariatric surgery has its own set of reasons why it should not have been performed:
1. If you failed at dieting and the diet was provided to you by an expert, you had no choice but to fail since the diet was, in all probability, flawed.
This means that you did not have a real opportunity to avoid the knife, since the diet you were given was destined to fail you.
Your surgeon should have first made sure that you were on a possible diet program, instead of an impossible one.
Since you were not given a real opportunity to lose weight by dieting, your surgery was not indicated.
Therefore, it should never have been performed.
2. Because you were not aware that your diet virtually guaranteed you would have surgery, you could not provide an informed consent.
A surgery performed without an informed consent, except in instances where consent is impossible (e.g., coma following a car accident), is a breach of medical ethics. It may constitute a battery (an unconsented harmful contact) or negligence.
You may be able to recover damages if you have been battered, the victim of medical negligence or unethical medical conduct.
3. If you were not provided a diet to follow before your surgery, you should not have been surgerized.
If you were on a diet first and failed, the following may have injured you:

If before your surgery, you were either not on a diet or failed on a diet, then the following may have injured you:
