I am in Vancouver too I haven't been able to go to any support groups yet, I've been thinking about going to a Salmon Creek one though.

I am meeting with Dr Leger on July 22nd.

I can't believe you are so close to your date!!! I'm so exited for you!! And bubbles in getting closer too!!! Hopefully I won't be too far behind you guys.

Hi there! I just got referred by my PCP(Salem Kaiser) today to get a consult with the Kaiser NW Bariatric Program. Can anyone who has, or currently is, going through the process share their experience? Any complications? Timeframe? Dr review?

I'm also in Salem. I went through Kaiser permanente. It took me a little less then a year to get through all my steps. But the steps depends on your needs. I had no prior Heath issues. I had Dr Leger as a surgeon this August 1st. He is awesome. He tells like it is. No sugar coating stuff. There are two other surgeons Dr. Kim and Dr.Bronson Bronson is super nice. I had no complications and I recovered pretty fast. There is a support group you can come to by calling and asking to be added to the Keizer station Bariatric Support group. You can come learn and listen, ask questions.

Thanks for the info! I will look into that support group! Do you know what time they meet? My work schedule is very strict so I'm worried about being able to make it to all the appointments and meetings...
