“Gastric Bypass”

It’s sort of like the grossest highway bypass you could imagine, only it involves shrinking the size of your stomach, then rerouting it to avoid the first part of your small intestines. Nothing is more disgusting to me than guts, and the idea of having a surgery like this is equally nauseating to imagine.

I don’t want to slander those who have undergone this procedure, nor do I deny the viability of such an operation for those who cannot bring their weight under control. But that does not blunt the impact of the images conjured in my obsessive mind when considering the notion of gastric bypass surgery.
