FREE Online Pre/ Post Bariatric Surgery Support Group
Those who are pre and post-operative for Bariatric Surgery have special needs for support. Often, patients feel excited and anxious prior to surgery. For example, you may have intense cravings for foods that your doctor recommends not eating. This can cause deep feelings of sadness, loneliness, anger and deprivation. It’s not uncommon to actually put on more weight prior to surgery as there can be an overwhelming desire to eat favorite foods.
Perhaps you are fearful that you will fail to keep the weight off after surgery and may even develop a food restricting eating disorder. It’s important to understand that these are common anxieties for those on the journey of weight loss through bariatric surgery, and you don’t have to go it alone. Support is available and accessible to you.
The best support for helping you along your journey pre/post bariatric surgery is through working with a talk therapist and having group support.
Our FREE ONLINE Support Group will help you to manage uncomfortable feelings that may arise both pre- and post- operative. Together, you’ll begin to find new coping mechanisms to help you manage and resolve anxiety, depression, loneliness and boredom.
