bariatric surgery card for restaurants
Mar 31st, 2007 at 1:08pm
 
At the lap band seminar Dr. Grossbard showed a card that you could get to advise restaurants that you had bariatric surgery so you can request to order child portoins at restaurants. how can I get one of these cards? Thank you in advance for your help. I had my surgery 3/13/07 and i have already lost my first 10 pounds

Jason you can ask the Receptionist at Dr.Rehnke's office  for one. It's aleady sign and just a paper like business card. Which I've worn out. But I got a really nice plastic one from the ObesityHelp,com web-store. And had Dr.Rehmke sign it with a permanent marker at one of my appointment.

Have you've checked out www.obesityhelp.com ; and thus joined?

You can also take the paper one and laminate it.. that is what I did, this will protect it and make it last alot longer..I got the laminate at wal-mart. you just put the card in and press it together smoothing out the bubbles.. then cut off the exess.

I never got one of those cards.  Be careful as most of the children's meals are not that healthy.  You are often better choosing an appetizer, or taking half home to eat the next day.  When I have wanted a smaller portion, no one has ever made a fuss if I ask for the luncheon portion or the child or even the senior portion once I explain.  Try it, what have you got to lose?  Good Luck !

I have a laminating machine in my office.  If you get a card from Dr. Rehnkes office, and have some extra time, you are welcome to come to 3E in the other office building and laminate.  If some one reminds me, I can also bring my laminating machine to our support group meeting.
