We in the US always gripe about our insurance rates. Everyone wants the governmemt to step in and do something about but I can now see where it has its downfalls.
I had my first visit with the surgeon on Tuesday and he wanted to know if I wanted it removed on Thursday. I told him the next Thursday.
I take it for granted that I can look in a doctor provider book from my insurance company and just call them.
A few years ago I was twitching all over and my GP said maybe you have Lou Geregs (ALS). The earliest appt he could get me at a neuro was 6 months out. Well If I have ALS 6 months is to long to wait. So I had to go to the ER and have them look me over. Since I went to the ER it was considered an emergency and they scheduled me for a neuro visit a day later.(no ALS thank god)
Is there any way you can speed things up by going to the ER and complain about swallowing problems or pain?
Just a thought.
