One of the first things I asked when I was approached with have neuro-stim installation was the cost. That was the one question that was never answered.
Unfortunately I have to take responsibility for that one because I should have kept on asking until I found out, If I had know the cost, I never would have had it done.
I re member when I first heard of the neuro-stim, it was years ago, an article that Jerry Lewis (the actor) had written, he wrote how long he had suffered with lower back problems, and how this wonderful neuro-stim had saved his life. At that time it was somewhere in the area of 200,000.-300,000. Of course it was way out of my league.
When I found out what it cost me, after it was done of course, I realized I would die before this bill would ever be paid, by that I mean old, old, old age would get me before this bill was paid. Worse the darn thing has never worked.
But thats all for that, its been gone over to many times.
Something has to be done about the health care in this country(USA). I am not sure what, but greed is going to put us all in the poorhouse.
And on this happy note I will say goodbye, hope all are doing well and take care of yourselfs. If possible stay out of hospitals, lol, I know its not possible but if we dont laugh we will cry.
