Thanks - I'll do just that. I had an appointment with my cardiologist last week and asked him about it. He said it's about the safest and most sure-fire way to get me to the weight I want to be at and he heartily recommeded that surgery.
He referred me to a surgeon at the Marina which is just five miles away. This guy will accept Medicare patients whereas the Beverly Hills Medical Weight-Loss Center would not accept Medicare.
I have a lot of faith in my cardiologist and anyone he recommends is bound to be good.
