Ok so I can go have my second surgery, BUT I need to pay off my balance with the surgeon first. Balance is like 2500ish (I had a stupidly high deductible on my health insurance which I've hit now).
Anyway I have to pay it off. I thought about an unsecured loan, but my bank said that I would need a job first. Ok well, I'm about to get a job back with my old company that I used to temp for. Thing is, I dunno if I will be able to take time off if I get hired to have the surgery.
I could get a secured loan against my car, but I'm worried that if I don't get the job (I always think of the what ifs) that I would accidentally default on it and then get my car taken away.
