Got a call from the VA yesterday...ready to get me set up in the MOVE program. hahahahaha, on the referral my doctor put in from my last appt, Nov 14th ~ that the doctor put in maybe 4 days ago. hahahahaha I thought you'd appreciate the irony. They did give me the name of a dietician that specializes in bariatrics, so that may be a resource I can tap into. I saw a endocrinologist yesterday, $140! Oh yeah, I asked for a referral to a VA endo in November, they said "no you don't need that, what other hormones are there to test besides thyroid?" the nurses exact words...hope you are doing great, thought you'd appreciate a good laugh.
