- HEALTH TRACKER
It came to our attention that our surgeon (due to liability issues) has taken our FB support group off their intro paperwork. We don't want to leave anyone out so if you are in the Seattle area and have Dr. Chebli as your surgeon or even if you have a different Dr and want to talk to fellow WLS folks feel free to finds us FB under "Dr. Chebli's Obesity Surgery Patients". It's a closed group so you won't have to worry about other people on your FB snooping and or finding out info.
If you have any questions let me know!
It's that time of the month again! No, no that one.. support group time!
If you're in the Seattle area (Seattle, Eastside, Burien, Kent, Renton, Auburn) please join us at the Sizzler in Tukwila (near Southcenter mall).
This week we're having a discussion about challenges we're experiencing. Whether you are 3 months or 3 years out we all need support and we all have challenges. Come lend your support to those who are in need and get some support for yourself at the same time.
You can sign up for our Meetup group if you'd like and be reminded of the events as they happen as well as RSVP (if you want):
If you have any questions, please let me know.

Does anyone know what the deal is with Swedish these days? I was told they accept Medicaid/DSHS and Dr. McMahon's web page indicates that he accepts Medicaid/DSHS patients, but when I spoke with them today, their insurance person told me that they are in fact not contracted with Medicaid and never have been. This is puzzling to me based on earlier reports from Medicaid patients earlier in this thread.
Did something change or did I simply get bad information?
Reminding you all about the support group tomorrow night 3/12 at 6:30 at the Poodle Dog Restaurant in Fife. We meet in the room between the bar and kitchen.
We will discuss getting back on track and some tips and tools to help you. I will also be sharing a recipe and a really fun new workout.
Everyone is invited to attend. I'm looking forward to seeing you all there.
Join us Tuesday at the River West Retirement Community
pre and post-op patients of any surgery/any program!
Open to pre and post-op patients of any surgery or center
Come see us on Tuesday at The Poodle Dog in Fife!
I hope February treated you well and that March is looking just as bright. The past couple of months we've done technical talks on vitamins and protein and I wanted to change it up a bit and talk about alcohol. Or, more accurately, alcohol addiction or the propensity towards addictions post-op.
I hope that you can join me this month and learn more about the signs and ways to keep on top of this and not let it get the best of you.
As always, if you have questions please feel free to bring them with you to the group or PM me ahead of time so I can include them.
Here are the details:
Best wishes and I'll see you in week!

You can also try Dr. Hanafy at Barigens Clinic in Kent- 206-592-5000. He does revisions out of Auburn regional. He's very kind, is easy to get into and those who have used him seem to really like him. I was going to use him but was sent out to Madigan for my revision. I have also heard the WLS clinic in Federal Way that you are going to now is very good.
