One of the reasons that I had weight loss surgery was because I have a bad back. The extra weight I was carrying caused me such pain that I was afraid that I would soon be facing disability. Having lost 125 pounds has improved my pain so that I am able to function. I still have pain, but nothing like I had before.
A new study confirms what I experienced. It finds that back pain is relieved following the weight loss that goes along with weight loss surgery. While my back pain is still there, it is a whole lot better. Weight loss surgery does not cure back pain, but in many cases patients find relief.
