ESHARA43, that's a tough question. It's difficult for us to countermand a doctor's orders here, because we don't know enough of your medical history. However, I see nothing wrong with encouraging you to seek out a second opinion. Is this surgeon a weight management specialist?
The benefits of exercise are about more than just burning calories to "remove" food (seriously, 1 slice of bread? What a silly comparison.) It's about heart health, strengthening your body, and more.
I strongly encourage you to seek out a second opinion, from another doctor. It sounds like you have many other health issues at play.
