Where can i contact other people whose partners have had surgery

Recommended Posts


I’m just wondering if there are any support groups for family members of people who have had surgery? My partner has had a gastric sleeve and it’s triggered issues around eating for me and how i view food. i can’t bring myself to consume more than 400cals a day and i’m starting to lose my hair as it’s been 4 months. I can’t talk to my partner cause i don’t want them to feel like it’s their fault and they need the support not me.

Is it normal for loved ones or family members or partners to struggle like this? I just don’t feel like i have anyone to talk to who will understand

I suggest maybe a psychologist. There are support groups but typically from what i have seen its for the patients tho in my support group which is monthly the persons significant other sometimes joins in as well.

Even though you did not have surgery it sounds like you may have a form of eating disorder. Any theralpist that specializes in disordered eating should be able to help.

      To working out faithfully for 5 days a week. Lets go back to that year with a more positive mind, 
      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
