Participants were divided in of severe obesity from the perspective of the Brazilian Public clinical (waiting list for a bariatric surgery) and surgical Health System. groups (open Roux-en-Y gastric bypass), and then allocated by the time of surgery (up to 1 year; 1–2years; 2–3 years; and >3 years). Costs of visits, medications, exams, and surgeries were obtained from government sources. Data on non-medical costs, such as transportation, special diets, and caregivers, * Paula Rosales Zubiaurre paularz@gmail.com were also colleted.
