No matter where you are there is support to be found for almost everything. For me I thrive on support for my surgery. I find that the best people to turn to when I need advice about my DS are people who have already had the surgery. Support such as this can be found in person through support groups such as Dr. Greenbaums or online through websites such as WeightLossSurgery.
Without the support I have found through WeightLossSurgery I don't know what I would do. Some of the vets have been my backbone, Dear Abbey, and answer to almost everything DS related.
I urge you to visit the forums and get involved. Even if you just browse and lurk for a while. You'll find everyone welcoming and full to the brim with knowledge. Enjoy your stay and look me up, vanishingmom!
