I'd like to find one too - I'm in Walla Walla. Pre-op but know I'll need support. Post if you've found or made a community.

Nothing found...yet. Been thinking I should start my own.

I'm new in Walla Walla, about 5.5 months post op. I've lost a total of 105lbs and have 25lbs to go to get to my goal.

Hey @@justmona and @@Eli Alexander, you all may consider looking at the Washington State Bariatrics Facebook Page to find others in your area.

Justmona, any luck? My husband and I had rny on June 19th and we live in West Richland. We aren't having any luck finding a support group either.

While I no longer live in WA, I would suggest joining the FB page mentioned earlier. It's been a wonderful resource! I lived in Pullman and as there were no support groups on the Palouse a small group of us would meet on our own. You might want to consider starting your own group. We discussed challenges, goals, accomplishments, etc. I miss the old group as I'm now in the process of finding a new one out of state.

I'm tying to use this link and it appears to be broken. Is the FB group still active?

Hey, came across the tri-cities post and saw this, how'd your surgery go? I just had mine on 11/8, so this is all new! :)

      Friday marked my first surgiversary, so I wrote 3,000 words about it on Medium: https://medium.com/@mistyfritz/life-after-having-my-intestines-rerouted-d7baf9c8c39f?source=friends_link&sk=e24f2259918ac091cdbbb8a8f24b1f63

      Hey all! So I went in for my weight management class. I thought that would be my last one but I actually have to wait until the nutritionist clears me. She has to decide if I'm ready. I''m not mad at it. It looks like my surgery will be happening in the summertime. So instead of focusing on the surgery date, I'm putting my energy into losing weight and making sure all these appointments are taken care of. It feels like doing mini quests on a video game before trying to fight the BIG BOSS. I'm not ready for the BIG BOSS yet. haha. Feeling pretty good!

      Finished my 6th and final NUT appointment yesterday.  Everything is done except the psych eval and submittal to insurance.  I did everything required of me including the 100 pages plus of food tracking, I lost 5% of my total weight, and I went to every NUT appointment.  
      Hoping for the best, things seem to be lining up well for me and in the end, I think I will be able to fully have my wife on board with this whole thing.  She says she is, but I know she doesn't think I should do it.  Just like I replied to another post earlier, i'm doing this either way, it's my decision at this point and I know I can get her to come around at some point and maybe even convince her to look into it as well.
      Also, I just started with an APAP machine a couple weeks ago and "holy sh*t" has my quality of life improved greatly so far.  I wish I had looked into this years ago.  I didn't think I had apnea until I had the study done and i stopped breathing an average of 12 times an hour.  That's nuts...
