Boone Hospital Center has a weight loss surgery support group called “Through Thick & Thin”. The group meets the second Thursday evening of each month. The meeting starts at 6:00p.m. and lasts until 7:30p.m.. The meetings are open to those that are seriously considering surgery or those that have had surgery. All pre-op patients are required to attend at least one meeting before surgery.
We generally cover a specific topic that the group has requested and then the remaining time is spent with Q & A for the group. All meetings are held in Broadway Medical Plaza 3, large conference room. This building is located directly across from Boone Hospital Center on Broadway. Take the elevators or stairs to the third floor and the classroom is immediately to your left once you exit the elevator.
We also offer a clothing exchange through the support group. As you begin to lose weight quickly after surgery you will find that you go through clothing sizes quickly. A “buddy system” is also available for more one-on-one support.
