I have possible thyroid cancer not confirm for I could not afford the operation they wanted me to have back in may 2008, which was to remove the right side of my thyroid. I also have Lipoma (benign) on the left side of my neck. I have my breathing and pain issue, also the edema in my ankles when swollen are painful too. these thing make exercising hard. I think I try to eat health but not 100%. I think I now have a overeating addiction. Turn to food when sad, eat when bored, eat to help give energy to me & my brain. Well I am a returning college student trying to better my education to find a better job for myself. I cannot work in fast food anymore for multiple of reasons. Parents do not understand how hard it is to diet. Dad eats small portion of food every two hours or so. But, he is out walking a lot too on his job. Mom drinks water all day she might not eat like dad but she good at controlling her portion. I do not know where to go to get the help I need. I need a personal physical trainer but has to understand how hard it is due to health issue like my breathing.moreless

    This show is so amazing, I love it. I got gastric bypass when I was 18 and now I am 20 and I am in serious need of getting a total body lift. You think it would be easy but it's hard deciding if I should go for it or not as I have a lot of fears and doubts. But deep down I want this more than anything. I know it is also rather expensive as well and thats why I'm contemplating. Does anyone know how you can get on this show or anyway you can write to them?Can anyone help me?moreless
  • to tell the truth

    This show help people with weight problems. It shows what can be done and that others are in the same position that some may be in. It gives hope and answers to those who watch it. It gives answers to questions that over weight people may have. Though this show may be a bit graphic it doesn't pull any punchs. It tells it like it is. I would reccomend this show to all paople. Everybody can learn something from the advice that the Dr's give. It is for the weight challanged and the not weight challanged. A show that is for everybody.moreless

  • I like both of the lead doc's. It's the lady that I do not like. She comes off like she is perfect and that no one needs the surgery. Who is she to judge? I do not have any respect for her. She should be replaced. She gets on my nerves.moreless

    Big Medicine - It's a good show. It's educational and informative. Not everyone can be perfect and it is giving hope to those that feel hopeless. I think that it should be easier to have the insurance companies approve this much needed surgery. The father and son team work great together. The lady needs to go. She gets on my nerves. Find a replacement for her. I hope that you don’t keep her around because you think that she helps cause controversy! I look forward to watching the next season with a new leading lady. Where can I sign up to be one of his patients? Signed BIGREDmoreless
