That was quick but not painless. I went in at 6am and I'm already home. E-mailers have asked me how school insurance covered this. I think I mispoke. The campus doctor called in a favor and got the anesthetist to work gratis as well as the surgeon. My school's student insurance had an add on policy that covered emergencies and I'm glad I paid extra for that in the beginning. That covered a percent of the surgery center costs. I opted not to spend an over-night but check in this afternoon with the campus doctor instead and stay a few hours in the clinic to make sure my pain is controlled. My co-pay for the surgery center was $300. That's not bad at all when I think about how much it was worth to get my throat fixed. My head's a little buzzy. I'm going to sleep. HUGS TO YOU ALL.


  1. Have a great sleep & lots of ice cream when you get up. Glad to hear the surgery is over & in a bit, you'll feel fine.


  2. Get well soon. I'm thinking of you.

  3. Hope you are feeling better. Hang in there and let us know how you are doing if you feel up to it.

    Is anyone else fascinated by the swagbucks total? I really need to get a life. First watching those damn puppies at work and now watching the swag totals.


  4. I work in medical insurance and I gotta say . . .

    DANG! $300 for a surgery is a good deal! Give yourself some well-deserved TLC this weekend.


  5. The $300 will be well worth it in the end! Get well soon!

  6. *Hugs* to you too. I'm glad to hear your surgery went well! Enjoy a much-deserved relaxing weekend, and enjoy a bowl of ice cream when you wake up. =)
