How do I even start this whole process?
By salt water on 04 May 2011
I have years of documented pain in my neck, back and shoulders, and my current pain dr is WONDERFUL. I've been horribly, embarrassingly huge since middle school. I wanted to wait for the surgery because I didn't want to risk not being able to nurse, but I'm done having babies, and I'm 42, and it's past time to start. Another member on this site has referred me to a couple of drs who have good reviews online. So. How exactly do I start this ball rolling? Do I call the insurance company first? Do I go to the b.r.dr first? What do I do? Also, if anyone has info on how long it took from first apt or phone call, to the actual date of the surgery, could you let me know? I'm trying to figure out the timing of all this; I'd like to have it in the summer before I turn back into the human taxi during the school year. Thanks all!
