Can't get blood from a turnip? Or can you?
Ho Hum-here comes the bills! I have accumulated $100,000 for 3 surgeries- remember me 10/05; the L5-S1 disectomy then 10/25 thru 11/05; the I&D washing of spine with staph infection and pneumonia, then finally a fusion with bone graft from hip on 11/22.
We went to a lawyer the other day-he said " it would be hard to prove the hospital from first surgery gave me staph infection. And further more the infectious disease doctor is probably covering up for the surgeon anyway!
That really stinks. Life is not fair-but who said it would be.
Plus guess what? The hospital's case manager/social worker that set up my IV therapy for home-got my stuff from a non-ppo network-so now I owe about $30,000 for that and there mistake.
I started physical therapy on Tues and Thurs. this week and boy, am I sore!
I have to do it for 2 times a week and for 6 weeks. Like I can afford this, too!
Since its the starting of a new year and now I have to work towards a new deductible. Sorry to rattle on about my bills- I have insurance but it stinks and plus we don't have a presciption card either.
I just want to get back to work-but I don't forsee that happening for awhile.
I go back to surgeon on Feb. 23, then who knows what?
I did however get good news about my infection-my cbc and sed rate were good today-so that should clear for my staph status and hopefully I can get back to work soon. I will just have to have my infectious disease doctor sign off on me-to clear me for work. WooHoo........................
Thanks for listening..........have a good weekend...........
