Hi!

I am in the Seattle area, and would love to start a support group for people either considering surgery, revision surgery or is post-op.

I believe there are not enough of us to support each other through this time. Unless you have been in the situation, it is hard to understand. It is so hard in the Seattle area to create friendships, I thought that this would be a great way to begin. It is about common ground, support and trust. :)

I am 10 years, post op sleeve surgery. I have been recently approved for revision surgery, however, the surgery would be a sleeve to bypass. Completely different.

I would love to hear from you all and hear your stories.

Maybe we can get a little group together once a week and share over coffee? Yes, I am an addict, a slave to the coffee bean.

The Swedish Metabolic and Bariatric Center has a support group that gets together a few times a month that might make a great starting off point for you to meet people. I'll be heading to a meeting in the near future (just had surgery this week).

Thank you for the input!

Since bariatric surgery is still relatively new at Virginia Mason, there are no support groups started.

I will be checking out the Swedish Metabolic and Bariatric Center. Thank you for the input!

If anyone wants to get together, please reach out.

I’m in the Seattle area too! I had my surgery at Swedish in August. I’d love to meet up with others in the area for coffee and maybe some Green Lake walks once the weather is nicer!

Hi! Are you still looking for Seattle area folks? Yes, I know we're all staying home, but I'm looking for a community that feels local, even if we cannot be local yet. :)

I'm pre-op and going through the Kaiser program out of Bellevue. Technically, the actual surgery is across the street (literally) at Overlake. I live in Bothell/Lynnwood and work in Shoreline, so a Seattle meet-up at some point works for me.
