Self-employer, thus opted to be non-insured....

Perhaps time to cash in a few coins from the Bit-stash and pay a private hospital to remove the offending stones?


You could just move to a country that really cares about their people and provides national health insurance.

Like Canada?  Roll Eyes
Stefan Molynuex announced today that he's been diagnosed with lymphoma. Apparently the prognosis is good (as far as those things go) but he was unable to obtain an accurate and timely diagnosis within the Canadian medical system and had to travel internationally in order to purchase effective care.

My suggestion for health insurance would be to get a high deductible policy and a Health Savings Account. The deductible will be $1,200 or higher, but the monthly premiums will be low (I think under $100 a month), and deposits to HSA are tax deductible. This was the option I used years ago when I was self employed too. It sucks not being able to go for routine checkups or minor things, but it's a good peace of mind for major issues.

That's funny! They run here for jobs and we run there for health care. I had a bad gallbladder and couldn't afford to have it removed, in and out of emergency rooms for a few years with every hospital refusing to admit me. Finally it ruptured and they had to remove it (or i would have died) without insurance. Wish I knew about Mexico back then. Would have saved me a lot of years of pain.

Edit: BTW: That laparoscopic coliSumthin pushed me into bankruptcy it was so expensive.

Update: Still hasn't passed, but the pain has alleviated considerably, allowing me to cut back on my dwindling supply of V's. I haven't drove in six days, having no idea if gas prices have gone up or down. Going to the warehouse tomorrow to accept and ship out some loads. I'm not planning on doing any lifting, though I may pick up a broom. My desk may be a mess, but I'm put up my warehouse floor again eVoorhees' desk any day of the week, on or off meds.

Update: Still hasn't passed, but getting much closer. Seems to be at the tip.

Got out of the house for the first time in about a week. I went to Walmart then Burger King. The cashier asked if I wanted a senior drink with my Whopper Jr. I told her that I wasn't a senior, only 53. The manager, standing next to her, stated no problem, for I had a gray beard. I inquired about seeing ID. What he said next about shocked me: We can't ask for ID even if a kid ordered a senior drink, for how do we know it's not for their grandparent.

Anybody else aware of this policy?

One more thing about the Walmart trip. I was taken aback when I saw the prices of the cereal being much higher than a couple weeks ago.

Sign of things to come?

Might be a signal of the cerealized "oatocalypse" I've been hearing so much about lately...

Ive pee'd rocks before, ooooooo buddy, started sweating knees gave out and ended tinkling on myself and the floor. Pain is not the word for it....

Tip- drink a bunch of water to help you have a larger stream, makes it lil less painful and make the stone come out faster

So the stone is in your bladder now? Can't you insert a catheter up there and suck it out?

The most painfull part is getting it from your kidneys to your bladder. The tubes connecting those are really thin, so think watermelon pushed through a garden hose. A scratchy cement watermelon through a garden hose. The urethra that goes from bladder to the outside is much wider, so it's nowhere near as painful once it gets to your bladder. Last two times I had stones, I didn't even notice it passing out when I peed (only knew about it because I had to pee through a strainer, so I can catch the stone and take it for analysis).

Somehow, I doubt that would be high on the "to do list" if someone had kidney stones. Wink
