HCG diet, do you feel it is worth the money ?

I am very curious about the HCG diet. I have been almost bed ridden for the last 4 yrs. due to some medical issues and it has caused me to gain 40lbs. This past year I had brain surgery to correct a chiari malformation of my brain. I also had 2 discs in my neck fused and I had surgery because my spinal cord was tethered so it had to be fixed. I m ok now except I do have daily chronic neck pain so I am limited on the exercise I can do. I hate it because I used to exercise all of the time (I taught kickboxing classes) I was very fit. I am just trying to find a safe way to lose some of the weight I have put on. I have been eating very well and I just started swimming at the community center for some low impact exercise. But have lost very little. What do you think about the HGC diet (drops not injections) do you feel it is worth the money ? Thank for you time.
