I must have missed this post, too! I plan on being sleeved at the Barix Clinic in Ypsilanti...not too far from the Ann Arbor area. I can't wait!

Congrats to everyone already sleeved... I can't wait to get my own!!! I'm scheduled for July 5th at Oakwood Hospital in Dearborn w/ Dr. Bacal.... I've only met him once, but he really seems like a nice guy & knows his stuff! Another big plus is that his office staff are so awesome! I go in Thursday 5/26 to have a scope done of my stomach because I've had acid reflux forever and have never had that done before, he wants to make sure that I don't have any undiagnosed ulcers or any other problems in there... Other than that, I completed my psych evaluation on Friday and things are just cruising right along... I am so excited!! July can't get here fast enough!:D

Nice to 'meet' you all!

Wendy

I live in Michigan (around Clio), but because I am so often in Cincinnati for work, I'm actually going to be having my VSG surgery done in Ohio.

Congrats to everyone who has had it done already. Wendy, I'm sure your surgery will go off without a problem. :)

Hey! Fellow patient of Grand Health Partners ^_^ I just got sleeved, recovering excellently (I love my surgeon!). Are the support group meetings still going on? I'd love to drop in!

Hi Madison

Yes they are still happening. Every Monday night from 5-6pm at the GHP office. Also if you're on Facebook we have a peer ran group page too. Both the meetings and the facebook page are terrific. If you want to find the facebook page search for GHP Support on facebook. Who was your surgeon? I had Dr Baker and can not say enough great things about him.

I was going to go with Dr. Baker (he was hilarious at the orientation!) but I ultimately decided on Dr. Foote. I think they were both very kind, and extremely talented. I will try to make it to the next meeting, that Monday is actually the day I have my 2-week post-op appointments scheduled! Can you give me an idea of what sorts of things they do/talk about at these meetings? I'm usually very shy/quiet. >.<

Sure can. It's usually a group between 18-26 surgical patients and a GHP staff member. We talk about issues we're having, how things are going, etc. There are those that have been post op for 4+ years and there are those that just had their surgeries last week. It is a peer led discussion session and always informative, not a lecture format at all. I usually get there about 4:30pm. I'm currently taking classes at GVSU so I have to cut out of group early, usually around 5:20pm, last week I have to do that, thank goodness. If you would like to try it out Monday I'd be happy to look for you, that way you have at least one person you "know" there. If your appointment is in the afternoon it would work great to hang around, like I said I'm usually there about 4:30. No problem if you're shy, talk as much or as little as you'd like. Check it out, it really is a great group.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
