LAP-BAND Surgery Forum
Weight loss is easier when you have support. This forum is for providing and receiving emotional and psychological support before or after Lap Band surgery.
A buddy/mentoring relationship pairs a successful and experienced BariatricPal member with a novice and/or struggling BariatricPal member. Both partners work together through the physical, emotional, and spiritual components involved in weight loss. The goal is for both partners to achieve and maintain healthy weights. This is a win-win relationship, with the more experienced BariatricPal member having his/her weight loss reaffirmed, and the novice or struggling BariatricPal member building the confidence and motivation necessary to achieve his/her goals.
This is the place to gather with others who are having Lap Band surgery the same month you are. You can go through the journey together.
Are you looking for a local friend for support before or after your Lap Band surgery? This forum is for members looking for other members in their cities, states or countries.
These forums allow you to discuss age specific Lap Band surgery issues with others in your age group. Your age can affect how you respond to the surgery, and the journey can be easier when you share with others who are of similar age.
This is the place to give and get support from others who have the same amount of weight to lose. Encourage each other and count down toward your goals together!
This is the place for support for pregnant, trying-to-get-pregnant, and new parents after Lap Band surgery. Share your tips and support here regarding breastfeeding, good nutrition, and taking care of yourself and your baby.
Come here to give and receive advice and support for Lap Band complications, such as slippage, erosion, pain, infection, leaks, reflux, port issues, acid and gas.
This is a place for ladies to discuss everything from Lap Band surgery complications, diet, and concerns, to any other off-topic subjects.
This is a place for men to discuss everything from Lap Band Surgery complications, diet, and concerns, to any other off-topic subjects.
Here you'll find Lap Band Surgery support groups centered on common hobbies, religions, medical conditions, and other mutual concerns. Get to know other BariatricPal members who share your interests!
A forum for discussing self-pay for Lap Band Surgery, as well as for discussing travel to Mexico to have LapBand Surgery.
Welcome to the BariatricPal Lap Band Surgery Social Groups! Here, you can start your own online Weight Loss Surgery Support Group or join on one of our member-created groups by visiting our Support Group portal.
