  1. I do have a full grasp on Bob bear's posting trends. and I can vouch 100% that he is sincere and thoughtful of what he writes In the history I've known him, he's never posted something that he did not believe 100% he's very kind, yet knows when to "put the boot in" it's "tough love", and he wont sugar coat anything he feels is accurate. I'm proud to know him forum-wise. he's a scholar and a real gentleman 8)
  2. thanks *z*...just doing what God wants me to do. many of us have repeatedly posted our stories, and facts, case studies....etc. yet few listen if my case can help someone else...i'll post all i can. but to those who are close-minded, i refuse to help
  3. please watch and before anyone starts..yea.....I'm "fat , ugly and stupid" bla-bla-bla... (whatever anyone wishes to believe) we have fought long and hard to get our stories out...we shall not be silenced now. i will surrender my life to this cause....if it means saving others I will keep fighting and educating. period.

  12. news crew is coming to my house Friday....hopefully it will get more dr's eyes open to the lies and deceit we have endured. I hate to hear about your last experience..but many dr's think they are God because they can *control* (loosely termed ) the human body. I hope u find a dr that will listen to u . i have been really lucky so far, but I see a new neuro tomorrow. so I dont know if all will go well or not. good seeing u Kruger, :-*

  15. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/articles/news/news.html?in_article_id=484414&in_page_id=1770 A patient is suing a hospital for £200,000 claiming an operation to cure blushing has ruined his sex life. Fitness instructor James Woodward, 32, underwent two courses of laser treatment at The Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton, East Sussex, to stop his cheeks from going red. But he claims that after the treatment his cheeks were left as bad as ever - while the operation has caused him to sweat uncontrollably and ruined his lovemaking. He also says that he has suffered from depression because of his ordeal, and is now on Prozac. Mr Woodward, from Worthing, West Sussex, claims he was the victim of medical negligence and is suing Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust for £200,000 damages. He says that before he went ahead with the surgery in January 2004 he was warned of possible side effects, including dryness of the hands, and the risk of his eyelids drooping. But he went ahead with the operation anyway, and underwent endoscopic transthoracic sympathectomy, which involved the cutting of some of his nerves. According to a writ that has been submitted to the High Court Mr Woodward said that after the surgery he developed difficulties with heavy exercise and sex. He says he now suffers dizziness, depression, chronic fatigue and sexual dysfunction, as well as an inability to cool down, and sore and aching muscles and sensitivity to light. He also developed excessive perspiration from his chest down as he says sweat pours uncontrollably from his chest, ending up in pools on the floor and his clothes becoming soaking wet. He said he was not told of the extent of the sweating he might suffer after the operation and the risk that his quality of life could be substantially reduced. He says he would never have had the op if he had known of the dangers. He paid more than £10,000 for a reversal operation in Italy in April 2004, which was only partially successful. Jo Carr, a spokesman for the Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust, said she was aware of the situation.
