We have created two new Facebook pages; one for Laparoscopic Associates of San Francisco and one for The Surgical Weight Loss Center of Hawaii. It’s a great way to socialize with other patients, get the latest news, post your own experiences and photos, or read other people’s posts about surgical weight loss for inspiration. We will also be starting several support groups on Facebook; one for adjustable gastric band (LapBand or Realize) patients, vertical sleeve gastrectomy patients, gastric bypass patients, duodenal switch patients, as well as StomaphyX and EsophyX patients. We were also considering subgroups, such as newbies (less than 3 months post-op) and old-timers (2 years or more). We really need your feedback, so please let us know what would benefit you! Also, if you are interested in leading any of the groups, please email Nicole at email@example.com.
