Any Bay Area California Sleevers?



Recommended Posts

I'm just starting the process, anyone near Santa Cruz or Santa Clara? I will be going through Kaiser Santa Clara and would appreciate some local support.

I am not from the Bay, but am close-ish lol I am from Mendocino County, about 3-4 hours north of SF. I know someone that went to the Kaiser in Santa Clara.

I am sure there are tons of people on here from that area, but wanted to offer support anyhow.

Thanks, I've gotten no responses, so I was getting a little discouraged.

Maybe there aren't as many in this area as I thought?

I do appreciate your reply.

Hi Kate, I live in Santa Cruz and had my surgery at Good Samaritan Hospital (Blue Cross). My surgeon is out of San Francisco, but has offices all over including San Jose. But I'm pretty sure he doesn't work with Kaiser.

Where are you in your process?

I've only gone to the about orientation, will go to the surgeon orientation in about 3 weeks, I'm just starting.

Would love to talk with you if you're amenable to that.

      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.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
