Group Description

This is a support group for people who have had or are scheduled to have a complete or partial gastrectomy, removal of the stomach. Caretakers of gastrectomy patients are of course welcome as well. There are many reasons why someone would need to have a partial or total gastrectomy, but the symptoms, side effects, and lifestyle changes afterwards remain the same for everyone. We are here to support each other through this journey, share experiences, share information, and learn from each other. It is important to remember that we are all individuals and therefore respect and courtesy for each others opinions and feelings is important. So please join in, introduce yourself and let's get to know each other!

PLEASE NOTE: DUE TO RECENT PROBLEMS WITH SPAM, NEW MEMBERS MUST NOW BE APPROVED BY THE MODERATOR. Please do not let this stop you from joining, however. All who are not spammers are welcome here. When you request membership, PLEASE LEAVE A NOTE IN THE "Comment to Owner" SECTION BRIEFLY EXPLAINING WHY YOU WISH TO JOIN. It doesn't need to be anything elaborate - simply stating that you would like more information about gastrectomies would be sufficient. This minor inconvenience has become necessary to maintain the integrity of our group.

IF YOU DO NOT LEAVE A COMMENT IN YOUR MEMBERSHIP REQUEST, THE MODERATOR WILL BE FORCED TO ASSUME THAT THE REQUEST IS FROM A SPAMMER, AND IT WILL BE DENIED.

Thank you for your patience, and once again, welcome!
