  1. I was gone a month and my e-mail catch got full & then sent back incoming mail. BariatricPal.com disconnected me & now I can't get back in. I only have the one e-mail address, I'm 84 years old. I don't know what to do. Can anybody help me? Thanks! Joanne M Holl jmhacct@runestone.net

  4. The Bariatric Center may be able to help answer your payment coverage. They have a record of how it is handled in your state. Suggest you ask for their help. Also your Primary Care Provider should write you up as a candidate for the surgery, and your coinsurance or maybe medicade will pick up the balance & future visits. Good Luck! Jo
  5. Congratulations Tracy, be sure to tell your husband to insist. You will do better if youi have a pal or spouse to cheer each other on! Was your class interesting? Hope to see you both on the other side.

    My YAY me present

    I have one just like it only aqua in color. Got it all rigged up last fall & put big hooks up in my garage to hang it & then never brought it down to ride. But I am promising myself I will this Spring. Suppose the tires will need air. . . . but my son put new ones on it last year so maybe it's okay. This has been such a long winter I do hope warm weather arrives soon! I have a picture we took with the bike all cleaned up, I'll have to brouse around in "my pictures" and see if I can find it. Cheers you up to just look at it. . .

    Did you name your band? :D

    What do you mean by boned? Or is it a joke & I am missing it?

  10. Don't want to get into politics, but I know what I would do. . . . . . I would contact my Federal & State Legislators and ask them what you should do. . .. . . . . & I would really get involved! That law wasn't really meant to do that. . . a bunch of politicians just screwed up! If our mothers & other women hadn't spoke up in the past we'd still be barefoot, pregnant and waiting on men!

    Migraines!

    The migraine hits me "bang"anytime I try to quit the coffee (caffine). My daughter-in-law is a diet coke addict and it hits her when there is not coke in the house! I'm just lucky the news media has changed tunes and coffee is back in good graces again. I say at my senior age I've given up everything (you know: reg job, good eats, sex, etc.) but my "coffee"!

    Lost my mojo. Can you help me find it?

    I understand where you are at. . . . I had my band placed in 2006 and sucessfully lost 70 pounds. In years following my husband died & then I had breast cancer which with resulted in surgery. Now I've returned to the bariatric center and my surgeon just smiled & told me I'd stretched my pouch above the band he would see me in one year. I've gained back some of the weight and am trying to mentally get on track. Next week I have an appointment with a therapist to guide me and hopefully get me on path. I like your word "mojo" because I need a push & a good shove to find my way back to the good life. I do love my band and it's placement resulted in correcting diabetes, high Blood Pressure & other health problems. I can't see where a sleeve would do anything for me. . . . . . I believe my problem is me.

    Sick a lot!

    Welcome to our Forum. No, this is not normal. Yes, please return to your batiatric clinic and get their help. In the meantime I would log/journal everything eaten and reactions & take that to them. Their nutritionist can becone involved to assist in that regard. Remember why you decided to get banded and search for answers to best use your band (tool) to become well/healthy & happy. Wishing you good luck! JMH

    Good Questions & Good Answers

    I have a request, that everyone take the time to fill out their profile & or update them, it just makes it easier if you are requesting advise for the responders to have that information. Also interesting to know if you are international or which state of our own country you are blogging from! If you want to be private just enter the state & skip the city or origin. Thanks!
