    Recent diagnosis

    Recently diagnosed with small stones. I'm tough, I can handle a lot of pain but this is crazy. I'm really empathetic with those of you who are suffering with the pain you describe. I'm calling my Dr''s office as soon as i reply. You must advocate for yourselves; call- don't let them give you appts 6 weeks away, demand to speak to advice nurses, call bookeeping & say "hey, what do i do about billing when i go into E.R. for this".
    They don't want to pay -that will shake things up. Walk in and tell receptionist I'm sitting here until I'm seen today. Don't be intimidated, they are physicians, not Gods. Their job is to heal, our job is to make sure we do. Good luck.
