It's very sad
This forum used to be really active. 2011 wen I had my RNY I was so thankful for this forum. I met my best friend who was a year out from me. Could not have done this without her. While I realize we most deal with FB groups. It is sad to see this forum falter. Don't give up on the option to reach out to others. 10 years out and don't regret a thing.

Yes, it is sad. I never use the Facebook ones. I lurk here more than post so I guess I'm part of the problem. I got discouraged when my weight loss stopped. I got it started again with the help of Dr Glazer from Humber. I also think People are just hiding out waiting for life to return to a semblance of ordinary.

I agree. When researching information before approaching my family doctor for a referral, I came here and read through all the forums but it seemed to be pretty dead. I'm not on FB but there is a huge support network on Instagram and YouTube. It's unfortunate though, I think the forums would be very beneficial. I'm still pre-op (I meet my surgeon this week!) and it would be helpful to have this as a resource as well.

Good Luck! It's a journey (I'm one year PO) but 110% worth it.
