I had Duodenal Switch weight loss surgery 18 months ago. About two months ago, we move half way across the country from Kansas to Virginia and I am really missing my surgery team from Kansas.
I am in the process of getting all those parts and pieces back in place, including the new doctor so I can get follow up care and advice and a new weight loss surgery support group. So far, I have found a good group but have not made it to any support group meetings due to all the hassle/hectic-ness of setting our new life.
Three things I am looking for are:
1. An active group who meets each month and gets involved.
2. Associated with a Bariatric Center of Excellence.
3. Has great speakers and interesting topics they are offering.
Hope I am not missing anything. Any of you been in the same boat?
It is a bit hard to have left my old surgery group (who I really liked and respected), but I think I can get resettled here in Virginia with the new weight loss surgery support group, get what I need and hopefully help others who are seeking help and camaraderie.
