Unfortunately my insurance does not see it as a problem. After submitting some very embarrassing pictures and letters of necessity I was rapidly declined any form of coverage. They have very little compassion for the quality of life this condition brings about. So I am totally on my own with the cost. Thank goodness for Care Credit that allows me to make payments for part of it.
I am so excited and terrified at the same time. I trust my surgeon completely but do not do anesthesia or pain meds well. I have panic attacks when in recovery and extreme nausea from meds. So I know I will be a basket case as the date of surgery gets closer. But I want to feel good again and that is stronger then my fear I guess. I am so glad to be on this site and meeting new friends that are going through the same journey. Hugs to you all and we can do this !! :)
