My trip to Seattle to consult with my surgeon was very beneficial. The staff are competent, polite and accommodating. I had so many questions for the nurse which he answered patiently and thoroughly. The financial consultant gave me a clear understanding of what is expected of me financially before the 4 week pre surgery date. My out of pocket expense will be in the vicinity of $3000 for the surgery and then additional $$ for other tests, x rays, and the braces themselves.
I am projected to have surgery the first part of 2015. It seems like such a long way off, but I know it will go by fairly quickly. Life just does that.
I am going to fast forward a few months to expedite this story. After all, this blog is all about the surgery, right?
