Abstract

This study explored long-term consequences of obesity surgery. Interpretative phenomenological analysis was used to analyse transcripts of 10 interviews with patients who underwent surgery 8 or more years ago. Experiences were described under three broad themes: eating behaviours, relationship with food and quality of life. Although patients described variability within these themes, describing different patterns of change, analysis revealed associations between themes and outcomes. In particular, those who reported successful weight loss also described the functionalization of food, the development of new coping strategies and a process of positive reinvention creating a new sense of self.
