  1. Psch consult done.... cardio g.i nutrionist sleep test to go

  2. . Did anyone have Medicaid and not have to pay anything out of pocket? I am in NJ and i found a Dr. The office said they work with all insurances.Which is good news and bad news for me. Now I seen this Dr 9 yrs ago for bypass i never went through with it because they wanted $2,000 upfront because other Dr didn't take medicaid. I really need this so I can be here for my son he will be 1 in July. I can't afford to pay out of pocket. Did this happen to anyone? Was there away around it? Did they just accept whatever your insurance paid? I am just praying everyday I am not denied for any reason I am 27 and do not want a knee replacement this year on in life.. i can barely walk.. i need this more than anything.

    5 Year history of heights and weights

    wow 5 years.. i barely go to a dr because i hate them teling me how big i am and i try to avoid the scale allthe time..i was in a program for 5 months and only lost 20 pounds in 5 months and quit because they hired a random lady of the street gave her a script and said here you go say this stuff... and they weigh you 2 times a week. I actually do have a dr that will probally just fill out paperwork he has been asking me to get surgery for 9 yrs now. i stopped going to him bout 5 yrs ago because i was sick of hearing it ... he even asked my father to convince me to go for surgery. I was kind of person in denial bout my weight that it wasnt that bad.. now i cant even get into a size 26 pants and im pushing 400 i have a baby and im scared to death of knee replacement.. so now its time to visit this dr sooon..
