Hi! I had my surgery through Grand Health Partners in Grand Rapids and they have a couple different meeting times for support groups. I'm not sure if they have patients attend from other facilities or not, but it might be worth it to call and ask. I've never been able to go because I work later hours.

I've joined an online support group on Facebook, but that's not very active. If you find any other groups, I'd love to know about them!

Grand health partners is where I'm having my surgery through. Mind if I ask who your surgeon was? Mine is Dr Nagle.

I've heard about their support groups. I work nights so I figured I will give it a try and go to a few of them.. See if it works with my schedule.

If I find anymore I will definitely let you know!

I had surgery with Dr. Baker with Grand Health Partners. They have many different support group options; some are in the evenings, some in the mornings, some mid-afternoon. They typically give you a list of their support group schedule. You can always pick one up anytime by stopping into the office.

I have not been to them since my surgery (October). I did the medical program through them about 5 years ago and attended support groups. They were wonderful.

My work schedule is a little wonky at the moment, but if you would like someone to go with you, please reach out and we can try to arrange something.

@@bluejeanbaby I had my surgery in June with Dr. Kemmeter. I love GHP!

I know the last time I checked they had a group that met around lunch time on Thursdays, but I can't make that, and I worked late on the 2 nights they typically had the 5 or 6:00 meetings. I'll have to grab a new schedule at my 6-month appointment and see if there are any I can make now!

When's your surgery?

I hope everything is going well since your surgery!

I'd love to build a support system! Don't know many people who have had the surgery so it would be nice to have some people to talk to!

That would be great! Thank you so much!!

There are hundreds of people around that have had the surgery. The support groups at GHP would be a great place to meet up with people who have had the surgery.
