  • Blanche Tyson on SECC starts Oct. 6
    How is this money used? I am spouse with no UTID so I can't access the online guide.
  • Mark Stevenson on UT Physicians unveils new weight-loss clinic
    Earlier this year I read an article about Dr. Deborah Horn. I made a mental note of the article and wrote down her name. I am searching for help. In 2007 I weighed 290 lbs. I had gastric by-pass surgery and eventually lost 110 lbs. But shortly after my surgery, my Doctor retired. I received no follow-up support, no nutritional help, nothing. Over the last 2 years I have gradually gained about 45 lbs. Some personal issues have caused me to be depressed. I do not eat a lot, but I eat only bad foods. Chips, cheese, crackers. etc... I am so worried that I will wake up in a year and be right back where I was in 2007. I am seeking any guidance, direction and assistance you can provide. Wow, this is crazy. I just now. This very moment saw Dr. Horn on the news. A sign? I sure hope so.
