Kaiser Sunnyside Oregon



Recommended Posts

Any Kaiser NW members out there who have had surgery (or planning to) At Kaiser Sunnyside. I would love to hear more about the process. I've been accepted to the program but no surgery date yet....just working through the required steps.

Me! I'm going through the steps also! I will soon be going to the 1 hour appointments with nutritionist and social worker! Not sure what step that is. I finished mastering weight management class back in December. And orientation in Jan.

I have my orientation scheduled during spring break.....so I am right behind you. Have you been given any insight yet as to what the timeframe for surgery is expected to be from when you attended orientation? Be sure to check in and let me know how your upcoming appointments go!

I believe it goes 1hr appts then a check back with them a month or two later then appt to meet surgeon, then surgery date. But that depends if you meet all requirements. Not sure what those are until I go. ;)

Yes! I do have the list with all the steps, and that sounds correct. I was more curious about how long it would be in between appointments. I'm up to date on all my general health things, and have been on a CPAP for ages so I didn't have to wait for the sleep study. I imagine it will come down to what the nutritionist and psych want to see from each person before moving on to the next step. Its been difficult to find information on Kaiser NW on any forums, largely the information I am finding is for California and their process looks very different. Good luck to you Bubbles80, let's stay in touch!

I'm with Kaiser South Sacramento, I started at the end of December, started my diet Jan 1, and had my surgery March 1st. I went to all the classes and appointments they required. The time went by pretty fast once I got into the swing of things. Good luck.

Yes had my one hour appt with Nut and the one hour with social worker on feb 22! All went well. Now I'm scheduled for a follow up appt with them both on April 27th. I haven't lost weight but people asked me if I have. I'm like no! But maybe it's inches or something.

Hi guys! I am currently going through the process with Kaiser and will be going to Sunnyside as well. I have already gone through orientation and weight loss class. I just had my appointment with the nutritionist and social services, with my follow up scheduled for 5/25 again.

Nice to meet other people going through the same process so close because it has been difficult finding Oregon specific info for Kaiser.

        I get Brooks because I pronate. If you have a local running store that will look at your gait and make recommendations, that might be helpful.

      What's your experience w/the Dumping Syndrome?
      How long did it last?
      How did you cope w/it?
      Has the dumping syndrome gotten worse each time more as the years go by?
       
      I had the Gastric Bypass in 7/2015. The last couple of times i got the Dumping Syndrome twice last year, and once this year have been the worst. My last one was on Easter Sunday. I felt Fatigue, nauseous, gagging, shortness of breath, laid down holding my tummy, wanting to cry, feeling desperate, it got to a point where i basically was unconscious. Is it normal to fall asleep without no warning and waking up out of nowhere to "wth happened, how long was i out for"? It's gotten scary, and don't know if this is part of the dumping syndrome. I've had more times but not as bad as the last couple of times. 😢
