Hello Everyone,

I'm 3-weeks post-op and doing well. I feel great. Are there any support groups in the area aside from the one offered by Christiana Care?

I go to Kent General in Dover and I think they have one in Milford. Do a goggle search for Bariatric Support group in "your town"..

How was the process after your final clearance appt? Mine is scheduled for Jan 14th and then everything will be sent to my insurance co. How long was it until you got approved, appt with surgeron and surgery date? I'm getting anxious and excited.

My PMRI Medical clearance was 9/10/2014. Surgical Clearance from Dr Peters was 9/25/14. Surgery date was 10/20/2014. My date was about a week later than normal because my EDG found I had H -pylori and had to take antibiotic for 14 days. Insurance approval to about 10 days. Everything goes fast except the liquid diet...LOL...

Hello everyone! I live in Dover and I'm going to have gastric bypass surgery with Dr. Irgau. I'm looking at June for my surgery date if all goes well. I hope to make it to the next support group meeting in Camden.

Hi everyone. I'm in lower slower. Had surgery at PRMC in November. Loved my surgeon Dr. Waked. I saw the posts about the support group in Camden. Does anyone know if there are any near Seaford? Also are well behaved children welcome? I have special needs kids so getting a sitter is impossible. They really are good. In fact when I went for a nutrition class the doctor didn't even know they were there until they stood up to leave. Thanks in advance.

B Autumn, welcome to the other side! Hope things are going well. Bay Health has a Support Group in Milford. I am not aware of any in Seaford.

However, I run the Camden group, and we are very small group right now and we probably can work around this childcare issue for now. I would rather you get the support that you need. You must understand that as the group grows in size and anyone can attend that there may be inappropriate subjects that may get discussed in front of your kids and at some point this may not work as well for you or me.

This Month I will be moving from the Church over to the W B Simpson Community Center and will have more choices of meeting rooms to work from. So Please join us if you can.

The next meeting is April 16 @ 5:30- 6:30 pm.

      I have been waiting over a month to get into the nutritionist. I have an appointment, but I would love any advice on what to do diet-wise to lose weight before surgery. Like most of you, I have also struggled with my weight and have successfully yo-yo dieted myself into the above 300lb range. I feel like eating in a calorie deficit at my weight, it should come off, but it hasn't been and I have been tracking my food too.  Thank you

        Howdy MindyG81 how are you today?

        Hi, Mindy G, I am new here too, my surgery will not be until July or August, but I could use a friend. I see yours is coming up soon. Are you doing the liquid diet before surgery? How's it going?

        I would take any advice on what to do for weight loss before the surgery, I have my first nutritionist appointment on Feb 9th (the soonest I could get in). But I was 12 lbs heavier than what my doctor submitted as my weight to my insurance, so I have to lose that plus at least 10 more pounds and I am struggling.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good
