OH Groups provide a way for our members to interact, share, obtain information and education, and support each other. OH Groups include members that have had various surgical procedures, have many interests, experiences and a desire to receive and give support.

Community Guidelines for OH Groups

OH Groups is a community that is run, managed and operated by each Group owner. Each Group owner has the ability to allow or discontinue group membership of any member. ObesityHelp does not moderate or become involved in disputes within an OH Group. Disagreements or disputes are conducted and resolved within the OH Group and will not be brought on the public message boards. Any thread or post containing issues within an OH Group will be removed at the discretion of ObesityHelp.
