I finally screwed up my nerve to call up to cape fear to get info on the bariatric surgery. You are simply not going to believe this. I did some checking online first and saw that Cape Fear Valley is a medicare approved facility for bariatric surgery. Sounds good right? Oh that would be giving the system too much credit! Medicare doesnt approve any gastric bypass or lap band surgery at all! Now medicaid does but because Medicare is my primary...we all know what that means dont we? Im screwed once again! Oh well...I hope to hell the system enjoys paying me disability payments for a long long time as I do nothing but get worse and worse as I end up with heart disease, strokes, cant walk, bed bound, in wheel chairs, need that damn chair to help me get up from a seated position...and on and on. I am going to bilk them for every dime I can now. God only knows that if I could actually lose the weight, I might actually feel better, then be able to GET the damn knee replacements and feel even better...and gasp...get off disability! But no...I will get worse and worse and stay on...no problem. Their choice. But I dont even want to hear one tiny word from them about what medical aids I need or what medications I need to take...not one word!
