    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Roca Labs Denied Me

    I applied to the Roca Labs procedure a few days ago and they did not approve me. I am very sad and quite frankly mad at the company. I have no health issues despite the fact that I need to lose around 80 pounds and after I went to all the trouble to fill out the application, I got a response one day later telling me that "I wasn't ready". What the bleep is that suppose to mean? I am ready and committed to lose the weight and I do not see why they wouldn't simply sell the product to me.
