    Financing my surgery

    Anyone used United medical loans for financing? What are your thoughts?
  2. I really don't want any person I've reported to continue to work on my behave. You must take a lot of perscription meds and your doc is loosing his kick back! Switch the doctor! if he was good for you we wouldn't have a weight issue now
  3. I'm really surprised that it's not many more deaths than this! We are all obese-to grossly morbid obese and out of the thousands 2 deaths? The odds are still great so switching docs won't guaranteed your survival rate you may switch doctors and be the first death for that doctor. The bottom line is we are unhealthy and unhealthy people most likely to experience complications in any surgery. Pre Operation 5/9
  4. I hear your rant. We love rants! Rants make us stronger and better! I am so proud of you, look how far you've come! You are really doing great! We support you 100%. 6,000 is only cake money! And we eat cake, we are gonna get through this and get it done! And beat fat's ass!

  6. Get the sleeve get healthy continue to enjoy your youth! I'm so proud of you!
  7. So sorry for your loss
  8. They don't realize. How hard this decision really is to say yes cut me open and fix me and they are really not supportive and don't know the struggle. I live on a diet for 10 years and. I'm still overweight! There's so much support here in the forum it's like we're family. My date May 8th dr. Cervantes my Dr was switched for some reason? So I'm excited
  9. Lol! If another person say," you don't need to do that! just eat right and exercise" I'm smacking em
  10. Which hospital is this? Wow this makes me nervous
  11. Sad to say it but most folks are not supportive and try to talk you out of it! I had planned to do this surgery with my 66 year old mother who was dragging her feet a living by the "but people say" law. My mom has passed away 2years now, I'm sure had we did as planned she'd be here now! Don't tell anyone but the support group, I have received so much support and encouragement from total strangers, we are sisters and brothers in the weight loss struggle
  12. Used up as in out-dated or total dump?

  14. Wow you are lucky i have very stubborn weight and would puff up if i ate anything in moderation. I believe the most of us here suffer from difficult weight loss. Good luck with your journey!
