    Wishing you lots of luck on your surgery....the best part is that after a couple of months it seems like it's all a blur......or maybe it's the good meds they give you...;) I have no advice, you have gotten it all from the experts. Godspeed...see you on the other side.

    Insurance Issues- RRRRRRR

    That is totally stupid. Ask for a copy of the clause in the policy that states that rule. I hope you are getting the names of the representatives you are speaking to. If they do not call you back, call them. This time if you hear the recording as you wait for a rep saying "this conversation may...
