OMG what a nightmare medicaid and medicare is here in Idaho!! I have been attempting for the past FIVE years now to find a Doctor so that I might be able to recieve a Gastric By-Pass surgery as I have about 200 lbs to loose. You would think that in it's self would be good reason to okay it, but I have jumped through sooooo many hoops that I cannot remember them all! And now....I have to start ALL over again, I found the Doctor, went to my first appointment and NOW....have to monitor EVERYTHING for six (6) more months because the past 5 years isnt enough documentation for the surgery? Is there something I am missing in getting this to happen alot sooner? Is there someone that I should be talking to that I am not? Man I am going to be dead due to obesity related health conditions before I get anywhere!!! If you have information or ideas please please let me know!!

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
