Hi, I havent been able to meet anyone in the area going through the same thing as me. I am 42 years old and having a gastric bypass on 9/14. Whats everyone's else's story?20200808_225425.jpg

Sent from my SM-G975U using BariatricPal mobile app

Lived there for many years (still have family there), but I left 32 years ago. But I just wanted to say hi! To be honest, most of my support has been online (on this and other bariatric forums). My clinic does have a support group (or did before COVID - not sure what's going on NOW), but I haven't been in a long time. I visit internet forums at least once a day, though. It keeps my head in the game...

Hi I'm in NC. I live in Salisbury, it is approximatly 40miles N. of Charlotte. I will be having my surgery in Concord. I am currantly waiting on insurance approval. They said it could take up to 2 weeks, so I'm not sure when my actual surgery date is? I hope all is going good for you. Keep us posted.

I'm in NC. I live in the Winston-Salem area and had surgery in Kernersville. Surgery on Sept. 21st. There's a support group, but they meet in-person and I'm in lockdown. So this is my primary support group.

I know my doctors' main office is in Charlotte. I see Dr. Bauman, at his office in Concord. They have been so wonderful there. I hope things are going good for you. I guess I am most concerned about the first 4 to 6 wks. I think once I get thru those couple of wks I'll feel a little more at ease as fas as complications go. I am just nervous. You know what all we go thru to get to a surgery date, and then now that i am waiting on insurance approval...I'm nervous as can be.

I uses Dr. Barbat, great doctor at Atrium. I love the office, everyone is so great to work with. The only thing I wish they have is the support groups but they are canceled due to covid. I am so excited to meet someone near me.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
