Thanks for the responses. I think what upset me the most was when I had the second opinion, the pathologist thought something looked fishy right off the bat. He said that there was only one teeny, tiny cell that looked abnormal. So he sent it off to someone else. The next pathologist had said it needs to be DNA tested, because it looked so fishy. The first guys had said SURGERY...period. Just think it was strange that 2 other pathologists thought it looked weird enough to have it DNA tested. If I had not gotten a second opinion, I would have had surgery. Very scary.
You are right Traci, the money is not the pt at all. Its the fact that they caused me all this grief because they weren't thorough and I still have to pay a year later. But like you said, Shouldn't I just pay it and be done with it. I'm still so angry thinking about it.
Judilyn, it was a big hospital in Temple texas. That was the hospital I went to at the time because of insurance. I have better insurance now and drive to Dallas anyway. Not taking the chance ever again.
I will have to think about it.
