I seen Dr. Parrish and I really like him. I'm from Rayne, Louisiana and it takes almost two hours to get there. My orthopedic surgeon set it up. He is taking my Medicare and Medicaid so I pay nothing ,but with all the tbings we have to do before surgery with no vehicle, I just wish there was a really pleasant Dr.that took my insurance in Lafayette.

Tell me, our Governor, is on a budget cut, seemed like they always are. Dropped many of my benefits December 31sr. Excuse? I make tooo,much,money on Social Security. I was expected to make!$750 a month or less. I do make a little more than that,but not the $100+ I would,have to,pay to go to Columbus our next big town. I am being threatened with eviction because I can't pay my utilities my cable which also provides phone service in a bundle, my household content insurance, my life insurance, pay copays on medication, remember I can't get them totally covered because they think I'm rich, put food on the table and,pay him cash on the,1st when I don't get SS untill later in the month. I had a court case settling from a personal injury, thinking,i would have settlement I robbed myself to,play him one month, then it slowed down, to balance my that month I went to one of those check into cash places, once you borrow from them you can't get free. I have a son living with me, want him here as he is of much help, can't get into over65 place because he is too young, can't get into Metro because they say he is too old to live with me, subsidized housing won't accept my 2 pet cats which no regard as family too. They are indoor cats, I can't put them outside in a doghouse or tie them from a stake. Shoot,i would not even do that to dogs.
So I understand Angela's points, I even shuffle along in her house shoes.

Does he take Medicare and Medicaid. Oh and how long does it take to finally get a surgery date from when you first see the doctor. Thanks, I will check into that.

I’m not sure what all insurance he takes. I used BCBSLA he had a peer to peer with my insurance to get me approved.

        I get Brooks because I pronate. If you have a local running store that will look at your gait and make recommendations, that might be helpful.

      What's your experience w/the Dumping Syndrome?
      How long did it last?
      How did you cope w/it?
      Has the dumping syndrome gotten worse each time more as the years go by?
       
      I had the Gastric Bypass in 7/2015. The last couple of times i got the Dumping Syndrome twice last year, and once this year have been the worst. My last one was on Easter Sunday. I felt Fatigue, nauseous, gagging, shortness of breath, laid down holding my tummy, wanting to cry, feeling desperate, it got to a point where i basically was unconscious. Is it normal to fall asleep without no warning and waking up out of nowhere to "wth happened, how long was i out for"? It's gotten scary, and don't know if this is part of the dumping syndrome. I've had more times but not as bad as the last couple of times. 😢
