SYMPTOM TRANSFORMATION AFTER BARIATRIC SURGERY INTERVENTION A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF PSYCHOLOGICAL EFFECTS IN BOTH LEBANESE OBESE MEN AND WOMEN

Elise Bitar, Jeannette Abou Nasr- Daccache

Abstract


The number of candidates for the bariatric surgery is increasing massively in Lebanon with little research on postoperative
psychological effects of this surgery on obese individuals.
For psychology, eating beyond the physiological need is a symptom and this study aims to observe the fate of this eating symptom.
The quest is conducted with three Lebanese men and women through a clinical interview and a projective test, the TAT.
The results show that all the candidates experienced excessive post-operative emotional fragility. The symptom persisted in two cases,
displaced to another symptom in other cases and for the rest, they suffered either from depression or decompensation or a feeling of
persecution.


Keywords
