We need a health forum to whine about our owies. My kid brother, who's quite well off, decided to buy me a new hip! Surgery will be this Tues morning. Due to the bureaucratic BS in the healthcare system, I'm no better off than I was 6 months ago. I think they hope people like me die or blow their brains out first, if they just keep putting us off, so I'm forced to go outside the country. It's much cheaper than the US in Mexico, and Yeah I know....Mexico. I've heard it all already, but at this point the pain is so awful, I've become desperate. There's only 3 outcomes that I see: They fix it They screw it up They kill me Wish me luck!
