Is a great resource for researching all things WLS. I will also offer that if you have the kind of health issues which make weight loss an absolute must, insurance companies can sometimes be made to pay. There is a group called The Obesity Law and Advocacy Center who can advise you on your legal rights. They have successfully helped many people in the WLS program where I recieve my support and follow-up care. One last suggestion is that if you have a 401k or other vested retirement account, a loan from there will have the best payback terms of any loan out there and will not harm your long-term financial goals. Good luck, and keep plugging away until you find what you need...

This helps and good luck!..
