Description

"Images" Bariatric Surgery Support Group

If you have had or are considering bariatric surgery, Images offers a comfortable place to talk about the changes that occur with surgical weight loss.  There is no charge for the support group, and you can bring a support person with you, if you wish.  The "Images" Support Group are generally held on the third Monday of each month from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm.  Please call 563-421-8361 to confirm date and time. 

If you wish to call and find out what the topic of the month is, feel free to contact our office at 563-421-8361.   

The "Images"  Support Group continues to be a great resource for pre and post operative bariatric surgery patients.

Feel free to attend one or all of the sessions!

The Importance of Support

The changes in your diet and lifestyle after surgery will last a lifetime. And you'll have a greater chance of long-term success if you surround yourself with people who understand and support your goals.

Things you can do:

  • Help your friends and family members understand why you've chosen a surgical solution. Many people are under the impression that weight loss surgery is an experimental treatment rather than one with more than 40 years of history. Direct them to this web site or others in our Additional Resources section. It's important that they understand that morbid obesity is a disease and that diets don't work for you.
  • People who are morbidly obese often report that their spouses, or others close to them, seem to discourage weight loss. These people see your weight as part of your identity. Understand that this is a fear of change. Discuss your reasons for having surgery. They need to know that your health is at stake and you will be counting on them to help you during and after surgery.
  • Surround yourself with people who share your situation. Ask questions and receive answers in a supportive environment. Form a network to share recipes and exercise tips. It's important for you to know that you are not alone. There are knowledgeable, friendly people available to support and help you.
