So, have you figured out yet that Petrick is NOT a DS surgeon? Are you doing anything to find a REAL DS surgeon who will take your insurance?
I have every intention of doing exactly thatHard? Moi? I am soft as mush (especially having devolved into a couch potato of late, for which I have no excuse). I don't want to see you get a crap surgery from a crap surgeon, that's all. You are already at high risk, and you should not be trifled with.
So, did you ask any of the questions about Petrick? Did you explain that NOBODY has heard of him as a DS surgeon?
Make sure when you DO speak to him, that he DRAWS you a picture of what he is going to do to you, so we can scrutinize it - and so you'll have evidence of what you were promised.
Rob, I'm not sure where you got the idea that I ever called out anyone on their expertise, or tried to tell anyone how anything worked. I have always said even from the beginning that I was simply introducing myself, and explaining what I was doing in my search for weight loss. I never said that what I was doing was for anyone but myself based on my own experiences. I'm pretty sure that I never called Dr. Cox a NUT either. My argument was never with the information provided, and I am obviously appreciative of everything I have learned since I have been here. Personally I liked the conversations and the sudo conflict, for better or worse it was informational for myself and for everyone reading.Denis, I’m very happy to see shifting your energies and focus on to the DS, the vits and all that stuff, congratulations! It was cool how you were able to call out the so-called “expert”, the NUT and teach her something, great progress!
And yes, Dr. Cox can be a little bit “hard” sometimes....lol, mainly because she is a VERY busy Woman and doesn’t have no BS time to waste (and she knows that shes always right)...and what time she does have, she tries to help people like us, sometimes even in spite of ourselves! I have studied her posts for the better part of a year now and even read her posts from when she was on the other sites and I promise you, she actually really does care and is very sweet! She just doesn’t want anyone to know about the “Sweet” part! ..You/we are actually VERY fortunate to have her and all the other Vets here to help us. I know for a fact that I wouldn’t be where I am today with my DS without their help and expertise. I'm hoping that in a year or two or less, you will be well on your way to having that more normal Life you deserve and I hope some day in the future, you will be Man enough to tell her thank you for saving your life. Judging by what Ive seen of your strength, your morale value and your character, I have no doubt that you will.
BTW.... Great job with the weight loss!
lol my bad, I'm sorry for the misunderstandingLol....@Denis Korb
Rob was referring to your conversation with the dietician/nutritionist. We shorten that word to nut...much easier to type....pronounced "newt" unless there really are nuts...in which case you might pronounce it as written...haha
He was referring to you telling her that children's chewables were not sufficient for DS'ers.
