Health Care Help

Posted on Tue, May 24, 2011 at 11:24 AM

I am sorry I need to vent because I am so fucking pissed off at our government my blood is boiling. There is an operation called a vertical sleeve gastrectomy (weight loss surgery) that not only saves lives but also greatly improves the quality of life a person has forever. It is covered by MSI here in NS but get this, there is only one, yes, one doctor who is able to perform this here in HFX. The waiting list is over 2000 plus people and grows and grows monthly and the wait time is 2 to 5 years. Yeah yeah, we have all heard it before stop shoving food in your face and exercise. Well, guess what the druggies, drunks and gamblers all get help with their addictions, lots of damn help! Being obese has many risk factors like type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, osteoarthritis, some types of cancers and gallbladder disease. As well, some even suffer from psychosocial problems, functional limitations and other disabilities are associated with excess weight... Again, I don't want or need you to bash me about my weight, I have been bullied and teased all my life about it. I bet you can all look over your own family and find a fat lady/man, so again, until you walk in my shoes don't judge me. I don't know who to turn to for help so your guidance and support is much appreciated. Well, that said I feel free but still pissed and mad as hell. —Big Momma
