Gotta chime in with my support of GHP. Dr. Baker patient here. nicden17 I think we were at a couple of the follow up appointments together. Do you ever go to the Monday night surgical support group?

I am also going to ask about the support groups for GHP. Do you go and are they helpful. I plan on attending them after surg.

Is that the first Monday of the month? My doc's office sends us to that one as well.

GHP has a surgical support group every Monday from 5-6pm at their building on East Paris. I have been going for nearly 2 years and find it to be very helpful. There are a great group of "regulars" all at various lengths of time post-op. Great discussions and tons of experience in that room every Monday.

Hey guys! I also had Dr Foote. He's awesome. I am almost two weeks post-op and wondering, what does GHP have you move onto after Protein Shakes? At your two week appointment after surgery what were you allowed to add to your diet?

Sorry it took so long to reply... We might have. ;) i unfortunately never made it to any of the support groups. I lived about an hour north of Grand Rapids. But I love that place and if i lived closer i would definately be at the support groups. Congrats on your weight lose paul :D

It's been so long, but i believe soft foods are next if your not already on them...Yogurts, cottage cheese...light things that are not heavy and litttle texture. Cottage cheese is my go to food...still 2 years later..easy to eat and high in Protein. If you can also i recomend..Isopure also makes a smoothie...tastes better then the Clear liquids..and it's 32g of protein in a bottle

I LOVED Dr. Foote I had my Sleve on Jan 29th 2013. I was at St. Marys for three days, no complications, no pain meds when I went home! I can't say enough about them they are AWSOME!!

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
