Does anyone have any idea how much a minimally invasive scoliosis correction costs? Dr. said they go in from lateral and posterior and the surgery takes about 5 hours. I have Medicare but because I'm under 65 I can't buy a supplement that will help cover costs.
I have Lyme disease, and a PICC line and get IV antibiotics 4 days a week. Am half way about through treatment and been doing this for 1.5 years, it's very expensive and I can add 3-400$ a month to what I'm already paying but realistically not much more.
Do you know if surgeons offer payment plans? the last time I talked to the Dr. I asked costs and he said they would give me a cost sheet. In the mean time I'm just wondering what others have seen on their bills.
Also...........I have a small company that I run entirely by myself. It's retail online so I'm open 24/7. I can hire someone to help with shipments etc but the admin work is too complicated to turf and I'm wondering is it at ALL possible to get on your Laptop for say 15 - 30 minutes the day after surgery and then throughout the day a little?
I've had 5 other outpatient surgeries where I came home and worked the entire day. I understand this is different but................no work no money. right now everything I make goes to medical so I need to figure this out.
Thanks and I have to say this is utterly terrifying. I'm doing mediation to help with the fear. wish it was just pain and suffering but adding the fact that it's so expensive is also through the roof stress.
