Yesterday, Khloe Kardashian gave an interview in which she revealed that after weeks of ignoring his diabetes diagnosis, Rob Kardashian is finally taking his health seriously.

She didn’t go into specifics, and sources say Rob is still refusing rehab, but apparently according to Radar Online, the troubled 28-year-old is taking his family’s advice in one respect.

Rumors of Rob undergoing gastric bypass surgery have been circulating for months, but insiders say it took this latest health scare – plus some cajoling from Kris Jenner – to convince him to undergo the procedure.

“Kris told him it’s time to take action – she wants him to have gastric bypass or gastric banding surgery,” a source close to the situation tells Radar.

“Kris has already booked an appointment for a long consultation with LA’s leading bypass surgeon, and Rob has agreed to go. He knows this is his only option right now.”

Well, it’s not his only option, but since Rob has repeatedly refused to work with nutritionists and personal trainers, it may be his best option at this point.

The surgery would likely mean that Rob will be lying low for several more months, but once he’s recovered, he may finally be ready to make that long-awaited comeback.
