Can Having an Eating Disorder Hurt You During Surgery?

Question by Shelby U: Can having an eating disorder hurt you during surgery?
I don’t know if I have an actual “eating disorder”, but I am trying to lose a lot of weight in a quick amount of time. Whenever I get like this, I barely eat, & when I do, I throw it up. I know it’s bad, & I’m not looking for people to tell me that it’s bad, because at the time, it’s facts. I’m getting surgery on my stomach for endometriosis in a couple weeks, & I’m wondering if sudden weight loss can cause cardiac arrest or anything like that?

Best answer:

My Eating Disorder – My Parents Answer your Questions – My mom and dad were amazing enough to answer some questions you guys asked about what it was like for them when I was struggling with an eating disorder. They felt it was important to give some advice to you parents and loved ones of people suffering from this, and to share their experiences for this series. It was difficult for us to talk about, and I realized it was the first time we’ve really sat down to discuss our feelings around this. I’m so grateful that they were brave enough to do this with me.
