Had RNY JULY 2015. :) I had surgery at Cleveland clinic of Florida but now live in Omaha Nebraska.

Try bariatric forums on Facebook. My surgeon has a support group page which is good because the majority of his patients are local to me.

Oh, and I'm in Perth, Western Australia

Oh, I am in Central Ohio, the name of my city is Mount Vernon, population approx. 20,000. And hey I had yesterday an different type of NSV than usual. Was shopping at Wal-Mart yesterday and I met in the Protein shake/ power bars aisle another RNY. Her name is Angie and she had her surgery at Grove City in May whereas my own surgery was o last September 5th at the Ohio State University Hospital- WEXNER Medical Center in Columbus, 48 miles SW of here. Now our local Hospital, Knox Community Hospital , will be instituting their own Small Bariatric program in 2020, neither ANGIE or I felt our own health concerns could wait for that, but they have started a b local Bariatric Support Group

She attended a meeting last month and I believe I'll call them Monday morning and find out the next meeting time. My own surgery clinic in Columbus does have A SUPPORT group themselves but it meets in the Evening, I no longer drive and hadn't found another person with my kind of surgery to bond with or who I could share has expenses with! The few local VSG I have met are several years out and no longer interested in doing THIS. Yeah one, Carol, was one of the reasons I even sought surgery at 72, she was in mid- 50s when her Sleeve was done, haven't seen her for a bit, think she and hubby Mike relocated to Florida when he retired. The older members of hers and Mike's family had all died, their kids have married and moved somewhere else,So they decided to escape Ohio and the Midwest nasty winters before she fell on the ice and broke some bones.
SO MAYBE I will see Angie again at the next Support Meeting!😛👍

Yes I used dr Eichhorn in Anderson but she is in with dr Scott. They are both very good. The hospital in Simpsonville that they do their surgeries at was very good as well.

Are you having yours at Greenville Memorial or in Simpsonville?

in Simpsonville they have an entire floor just for bariatric patients. Plenty of people to walk with in the middle of the night
