Re: ultrasound shows many stones
your correct on all counts. Met with surgeon..will have removed but with huge caution. Surg Center is least expensive but if they enter via lappy and cannot find their way around adhesions...transport to hospital,ER, and open surgery..can cost
plus $30K or more than Surg Cen. Wife had abdominal surgery in 2010 thus the "concern"...must make decision tomorrow..Hospital/Surg Center...Hosp is X3 but if they go to open surgery...no transporting, and already with anethesologist in anticipation..dr is skilled in both procedures. Fee higer of course. Think Hosp setting for best outcome in spite of $. we are uninsured.
