I need to know if a person who has no teeth and cannot chew well shouldnt have gastric surgery for weight loss? can a person who has no teeth and no false ones to use, even have this surgery? They emphasize so much about chewing your food sooo well. That is impossible for me to physically DO, even now taking small bites I often get food chunks stuck inside my esophagus and throw it back up after much pain. Another question, I am taking liquid narcotic medication for treatment day to day, will I be even able to drink that? If I couldnt Id go into immediate withdrawl and tear open my stitchs vomiting.
