ABSTRACT

Background: Bariatric surgery has become a standard of therapy in treating morbid obesity and obesity-related complications. Understanding its effects on the patient is a crucial part of treatment. This study aimed to investigate the effect of bariatric surgery on quality of life (QoL), using the Moorehead-Ardelt quality of life questionnaire II to assess and compare pre- and post-bariatric surgery patientsí QoL. Methods: This study was a retrospective comparison study conducted at King Abdulaziz Medical City in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. A total of 72 patients were divided into pre-operative and post-operative groups with 36 patients in each group. Patients were asked to complete the Moorehead-Ardelt quality of life questionnaire II (MAII) for the assessment of their QoL. Results: A total of 72 were included in the present study, of whom 39 (54.17%) were males and 33 (45.83%) were females. The mean age for the post-operative and pre-operative groups was 35+9.55 years and 36.11+12.70 years, respectively. The mean body mass index was 33.09 + 6.04 kg/m2 in the post-operative group, while it was 38.35 + 5.47 kg/m2 in the pre-operative group. The mean scores of QoL for the post-operative and the pre-operative groups were 1.82 + 0.90 and 0.80 + 0.98, respectively. There was a significant difference in the MAII score between the pre-operative and post-operative groups (p < 0.001). Conclusion: Findings of the present study showed a significant increase in the overall quality of life in those who underwent bariatric surgery compared to those who have not had it. A statistically significant difference was found between the two groups in individual scores of self-esteem, physical activity, pleasure out of sex and approach to food, with the post-operative group having higher scores. This may be helpful in making the decision of performing these types of surgeries for both patients and physicians alike.
