Laury - I read your post about your son and his chivalry and I just want you to know that with that kind of support, you will not fail. I know that living like you are is difficult and there are days that you wish there was a magic wand, or a potion, but humility and the belief in love is more powerful a tool than you could ever hope for. You know where you are, now let's see where you can go. There are many of us here to keep you on track, so be patient and keep your thoughts happy. Jen

Laury, I also suffer from Pseudotumor Cerebri and have for 10 years. I had an Open RNY on August 7, 2002 and have lost 84 pounds so far. The change has been dramatic!!! So far all my PTC symptoms have gone away!!! My vision has returned to normal and my optic nerves are no longer in jeopardy. I was on 24 medications a day before surgery, had to have lumbar punctures all the time and even had chemotherapy for pain management. All that has stopped! I am only taking my Thyroid medication now. No more Lasix! No more Diamox!! Life is good!! Feel free to contact me if you want to talk. Hang in there hon!!! There is a way out of your disease. Hugs, Kathie (in Hawaii)..................

Laury, I had medicare primary and QMB medicaid secondary. they paid for everything! and it was all approved within 3 weeks time too. In fact the surgeon's office went ahead and made my surgery date that first appt because they know that medicare WILL pay for it. medicaid picks up what medicare does NOT pay, just hang in there..get a good primary physician referral and all should go well!

Hi Laury, My name is Vickie Linke, I am still pre-op but I wanted to tell you to look up a Dr. Dave Richards, he just recently moved to your area and he specialized in Lap surgery here. He said he wouldn't be starting with Lap there tho, but he would try to motivate the hospital to DO IT! Perhaps if you could locate him and tell him about this site, he "might" start working on the hospital sooner. He don't know me from a hill of beans, though so if you talk to him just mention this site. He is an excellent surgeon also. hugs and prayers
