So I scheduled my surgery for March 17, 2009 and today i get a call from the hospital saying that since the ADR isn't covered by surgery I have to put a deposit of $18,000.00 down or I can't have surgery.. How is this fair I am 38 years old and at this rate living in continues pain and my numb leg I will be crippled... The doctor wants to do a L/5 S1 fusion and a L4-5 ADR... I already had to borrow money to pay my surgeon.. How can they put a price tag on my life.. Please help..
Feb. 2008, April 2008, July 2008, and October 2008 had laminectomy L/5 S/1 all the dates above.. Now I have a different surgeon..
