Hi Everyone!
My name is Heather and I am 25 years old. I desperately need to find a SURGEON that accepts affinity/medicade.. I weigh approximately 350lbs and I am 5'3.. I have suffered from an car accident in 2007 a slip and fall on my right knee in 2009 and just recently another car accident in Aug 2010. I cannot physically exercise anymore :smile: I just need a good start on this weight loss journey. I am very interested in the lap band surgery I feel like it is my ONLY option now. Please e-mail me at h_colonna9785@hotmail.com because i have better access to my email. Thank you everyone and God Speed. Ms. Heather

The easiest thing to do will be to make an appointment with your primary care doctor and have him refer you to somebody... assuming your insurance will cover the proceedure - check your brochure :smile: best of luck
