    Default Medical Rant

    Sorry to rant but I am so sick of it ~ each trip to labor and delivery is $1400 - $2000+ now figure 2 -4 times a week
    [05-03, 16:35] Raeja: Like Stupid young OB ~ we need to go back to family Dr's doing the job ~ ours called and told my daughter some things that may help cuz he would have already induced labor ( he was her first dr)
    [05-03, 16:34] Raeja: Sorry not here much ~ babytime closer than we may think ~ Rissa missing lots of school and lots of trips to labor and delivery ~ she not dialating but strong contractions so they send her home REALLY? Sher is only 17 they need to figure something out\

    WOW-you just opened a can of worms-don't know where to start !

    My insurance is $89 more a paycheck-def feeling that along with my outstanding & ongoing bills.(half the $7500 I won from sweeps went to bills-lifesaver)

    They won't let my ortho surg be my primary care anymore,sucks-feel like my safety net is gone.Insurance doesn't care that none of my surgeries were easy-I just happen to be stubborn & bounce back,my 4 & 1/2 hr surg had 5 residents watch cuz they'll rarely see it,& my ortho surg is the only 1 who can handle MOST my issues-ortho,neuro,etc..."I'm too post-surg to keep seeing a specialist",but yet I will now have to see a GP,a rheum,a neuro,etc...

    Since there is SOOO many junkies in UT (yes-meth is rampant & I see it),pain pills are highly regulated.I will now have to go to a pain clinic to get my Norco 7.5-hydrocodone,not oxycontin,& that is a pain.Have to sign a contract-random UA,pill count(to make sure you're not selling them or taking it more than prescribed),etc...Also my nerve healing med Lyrica keeps getting more & more expensive & I had to keep most expensive insurance to keep it covered (others won't)

    UGH !!!

    I know what you mean! Just more rant, just got bill statement for Feb 2 (Rissa has at 7 or 8 plus visits since then) This one was $3,043.70 and she is never there longer than 2 hours and they put a heart monitor on her to hear the baby and something to detect contracttions and do a pelvic ~ she is lucky if she sees a doctor or nurse more than 15 minutes She is already over $20,000 and the baby isn't even born yet

    On a fair note from last nite's visit ~ she is more than 50% thinned out and about 3 cm dialated ~ hope baby gets here soon ~ the hospitals are blood suckers and taking advantage of her becaused they don't get many teenage pregnancies and they are handled different than an adult woman ~ they asked her if she would sign papers to consent to interns being there when baby is born because of teenage pregnancies are rare and done differently than with a matured woman ~ she did sign
