just curous...what are you all finding out about
insurance coverage regarding surgery?? Are they only wanting to cover in emergency situations? What are they thinking about
getting it done when we are in remission to avoid possible complications? Are they
open to covering it no matter what?? I"m curious, because I'm seriously considering just having it done, and get off all these potentially dangerous drugs once and for all... what do you all think???
