AshleyMarie,

I found them on LBT. Look under the support group section, then California. They are meeting on Wednesday mornings at 10:00 am at the library in Mission Valley by the IKEA. I cannot attend on Wednesday (not right now anyway) mornings. Maybe in the fall when my kids are back in school if they are still meeting. I will have to check back in September.

Hello, I'm scheduled to get surgery on August 7th and I was wondering if the was a support group or interest in forming one for OCC patients. I live on the border of LA and Orange county.

Hi! I live in Cerritos (also O.C. & L.A. border) and I was banded on June 12th. Where are you?! Damn, its such a small world that I probably know you already!

Hi there, well I live in Norwalk right by Cerritos College and actually work in Cerritos. Small world huh??? I had actually followed your post mostly cause of your "about me" post you wrote. I related so much to what you wrote and it hit home with me in many ways. My insurance denied my band here. My BMI was on the lower side (34) and I didn't have any "complications" due to my weight. That's how I ended up @ OCC paying it on my own.

hi Lea and BMEagain!

I work in Bellflower (live in San Bernardino County) and I was also self-pay my BMI was between 33 and 34. I am very happy with the lapband eventhough I haven't lost that much (only 28 punds in 7 months). I would love to be in a support group as well! So count me in!

Hi Folks - I was banded 8/14, last Friday, and live in West LA. I'd love to meet fellow SoCal banders once a month for morale support and friendship!

Reg

Hey So Cal newbies....

Why don't we all plan a "get together" once a month somewhere in the area and get to know and support each other! I don't mind a little drive, so let's figure out where most of the So Cal banders live and get together. I cannot do Sundays, but Saturdays are fine. What do you all think?

I completely agree..

Do the So Cal bandsters want to arrange for a get-together on Saturday, Sept. 26th? We can figure out where after we know how many people we have!
