Post-Op

Designed for patients who have already had weight loss surgery. If a patient has a friend who had surgery at another hospital, they are also welcome to attend. A Center staff member facilitates the group. There is time allotted to answer any questions, however the group has a specific focus each month. Some past topics include: Recipe Makeovers, Every Day Speed Bumps, Mindful Eating, Holiday Eating, I Have Had Enough of This, and Plastic Surgery.

If you've had weight-loss surgery, you are invited to attend our post-operative support group. If a patient has a friend who had surgery at another hospital, they are also welcome to attend. The groups are facilitated by a professional staff member. We meet once a month to discuss issues related to life after surgery. This is an informative, supportive, and interactive meeting. There is time allotted to answer questions, however the group has a specific focus each month. NOTE: Topics subject to change at the facilitator's discretion.

There is no fee, and no need to register. Come learn, share, support yourself and others!

These groups meet in the main classroom of the Center for Weight Management and Bariatric Surgery at Lowell General Hospital's Chelmsford Campus, which is located at 20 Research Place, Suite 110, in North Chelmsford, MA.
