My life was forever changed August 9, 2016. That’s when I had gastric bypass surgery.
I developed a severe stricture about 1 month post-op and was very sick during the next few months. It took 3 weeks of testing and 2 multiple-day hospital stays to diagnose the stricture. After being diagnosed, I underwent 4 endoscopic stretching procedures to widen the stricture and let food and liquid pass through. I was on a PICC line at home for a month with a feeding bag attached 16 hours a day.
During my illness, I searched for online groups, classes, and resources to help me adjust to the mental and emotional changes needed to be successful after surgery.
All I found was nutritional info, exercise suggestions, and supplement recommendations. If I had been able to follow those during my pre-op life, I wouldn’t have needed surgery.
I knew I needed more than my hospital’s bariatric surgery program had to offer.
So I created the course I wish I had post-op. It’s called “Success and Support for Weight-Loss Surgery.” It’s a 12-week course which includes group coaching, accountability, education, actionable resources, and support for the mental and emotional aspects of being obese and choosing surgery.
