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.
