Kaiser patients especially richmond??
Hope this is of some help to you
Kinda typical. Who is gonna be your surgeon? Mine went like wildfire after I finished the classes. I was expecting months and I was set up and done in weeks! Loved the process there. Went smoothly.
Good luck to you both!

She must understand that the sleeve is a tool. Options and other therapy is
highly recommended. There is OA, or bariactric support groups, one on one
therapy, food feeling groups. I do them ALL. it helps with the mental part of it.
She needs to understand this is a life style change. Some people have regrets
after surgery and she needs to be prepared for this. It will pass from what I have
read and seen by others. I just never went through it.
Also, it may get confusing because one WLS patient doctors to the next may have different
food plans or suggestions in how to handle post up eating and stuff. It also may be different
from options to your very own surgeon. Please know this....All doctors/surgeons have
different remedies or food plans. it doesnt make it right or wrong, just different.
Your friends success will be all on her and how she follows food plan.
There is a guy here by the name of frisco that says all the time " Eat under your sleeves
Capacity" its true. she must follow food plan. she must understand this is a tool and
we still need to work on our head and get support anyway she can. OH is a huge part
of my support.
read read read OH and do a search typing in any topic you may have issues, concerns or just
plain want to know about something. its all here... .
private message me if you want to talk more or add me as a friend and lets meebo chat.
