I didn't have surgery Friday. he hospital refused if I couldn't pay 20 % of the BILL Right then & there.( The location of the mass is @ or about my throat) Yikes!! I FELT LIKE i WAS BEGGING SOMEONE TO CUT MY THROAT. They called my Surgeon to ask if the procedure was life threatening. While I waited to find out what I could do to have the procedure my doctor's office called & told me to leave that office & I would be placed @ another hospital . I was given a choice of where I would like to have the procedure. Sooo I picked up my purse & walked. I'm scheduled for Mon @ the Heart hosp. in my town. The procedure & possibility of adverse side effects have been explained. I was asked what if any of my deductible could be paid. Now , I'm back on track . Everything is for a reason , Right?
That Was Really Ridiculous Of That Hospital. It's All About Money These Days! I Tell You I Washed My Hands On Them And Decided To Get Myself Healthy And TRUST God Because It Was Worse Being Treated Like Livestock Instead Of a Person. I Believe It Will Get Worse. I'm Taking My Healing Sis! I Have NOTHING Against The Medical Field Because I've Worked In It And Have Contributed My Money To It. Anyway I'm Glad All Is Well. And I Do Hate I Didn't Catch This. BE Blessed! I Worked In A Large Hospital In Tulsa In The ER At Night And Those Quiet Nights Were The BEST! Of Course, They Were Few. :) Deb 2807 days ago
I am really sorry that you had to go through this to have health. I remember when we worked together and health care was a right! Now our health care is only profit! I just don't know when we got so greedy!
Try not to dwell on this as you are more than the sum of all of this! Stay strong!
