: Pete, I was just curious about where you are going to have the surgery and if medicare will pay for most of it. Good luck take care. PS: I am still waiting for the call to get an appointment. Bruce
I will have the dbs at the University of Virguinia Hospital in Charlottesville, Va. Dr Laws will do it as he did a pallidotomy for me in 1996.
I doo not have an appt. either--they will call some time before the new year
I think medicare will pay for most of it --it did pay for pallidotomy--eventually--
I hope you get logged in soon -it is a little nerve-racking to play the waiting game so long.
What symptom is the one that is giving you the most trouble? And, which one of thne procedures will you have?
you take care--God bless you--I appreciate your writings-pete
