Many successful gastric bypass surgery patients say that their support network helped them immensely in maintaining their new healthy lifestyle changes. From family and friends to their bariatric program support groups, there is a wealth of options available for people interested in weight loss surgery.
Support groups are an excellent resource. You’ll find people who share your goals of health and wellness. Our support group is a forum for celebrating successes, such as the improvement or resolution of co-morbidities. Our support group is devoted to people who have common experiences, who can share their feelings in a safe environment, and develop relationships that can contribute to improved physical and emotional health.
If you are thinking about weight loss surgery, and you want to learn more about the patient’s perspective or help reluctant family and friends understand, attending our support group meeting can be invaluable.
Our Support groups are a wonderful place to meet people and get perspective on bariatric surgery. You’ll hear about successes, frustrations, plateaus, and special moments, and have a chance to share your own experiences.
