My original support group is on hold for a maternity leave and I don't want to wait until December to be involved with a group again since I am not even 2 weeks post-op. I live in the Anoka area but will happily drive anywhere in the Metro area for group.

Any help please? Thanks!

I can't help with physical support groups in your area, but I'll have to say that I found TT to be much more helpful than any group I ever visited:) There is another WLS forum that is generally pretty active, too. And some folks participate in a facebook group, too. I know it's not the same as a face to face group when you really like to do things in person, but they may keep you busy and informed (and supported!) while you look for a "real" group. Good luck!

There's a group that meets once a month but I missed it. Ask Cheesehead for the details. Last time they met in the Bloomington/Edina area.

I've gone to a group called "Images" at Unity Hospital in Fridley since March of this year. They meet the first Thursday of each month from 6 to 8 pm; the group has both pre-op and post-op people and is led by a facilitator who makes it fun to be there. I'll add the Allina URL below in case you'd like to look at information about other groups/times as well.
