488264 tn?1226523907 Well, that's the diagnosis of my eye problems. The incaccurate history repeated back by the little boy who saw me to the consultant was overheard by me. The consultant nodded with self-important in impatient interest until he heard the magic words - I was being seen by a neurologist in another hospital. Suddenly he leapt into the air in joy, kissed the little boy (my vision is bad) and came over to me pointing and saying 'ha ha..
Avatar n tn I have a pain like this on the backside of my knee. It started random, but now seems to occur more when I bend my toes up towards my knee. I have tried to find info on this and sciatica seems to fit the bill more than anything, but everyone says that starts in the thigh and I don't have pain in my thigh. It is quick, severe, and feels like someone is shocking me. I would guess that a shocking pain would be associated with a nerve being pinched. Let me know if you find out anything else.
Avatar n tn Hello, I am considering having the surgery to improve my chances of fertility. I am 35, 4 miscarriages, now 2 years of infertility. Can anyone tell me how much this surgery costs? My insurance will pay, 80% after meeting the deductible. I know how much my doctor charges, and I need to know how much the hospital, anesthesiologist, hospital stay costs to help me making this decision, which is entirely optional surgery for me.
Avatar n tn My surgeon wouldn't give me anything more than vicodin 500 after surgery and I was complaining of the pain from the moment I awoke from surgery. While in the hospital, I got demoral AND 1 Vike every 4 hours. I was in extreme pain and went home in worse condition with pains now down both legs. Still, my surgeon refused to give me pills that worked. I had to have my surgeon release my meds to my family doc. so I could function.
Avatar n tn His team has also had a lot of success with endoscopic and laser surgery. You can send all of your stuff to him for evaluation before having to make the trip. I've seen some spectacular cases he's operated on. One guy had no discs in his neck, just one long rod! You only have one neck and that connects to your back which makes up your whole spine..... make the right decision when it comes to who you let cut it open. Another great site is GPN, Global Patient Network.
Avatar f tn any updates on your LIS surgery? results of your condition/surgery?
Avatar n tn He was always there for me. He went through my knee surgery with me. He would always snuggle with me whenever anything was wrong. There was something about him where he always knew if something was wrong and exactly how to help me get through it. Unfortunately this is the hardest thing I've ever been through,and he isn't here to help me through it. I just keep thinking that when I come home he'll be asleep on the couch or looking through the window at me.

1945496 tn?1324178215 Physio may or may not help at this point depending on what's going on with that knee. I see you're in the UK and have to deal with NHS. Most doctors here in the US lean on the pro-physio side. It can be a long, drawn-out process depending on the injury which makes it expensive. Cost may be the only reason you were not referred.
Avatar n tn She is so exhausted that she can't fight no more against medical community in order to admit the origin of her symptoms and to push them to try to find a beginnning of solution. Is there any progress in the comprehension of the cause of these symptoms ? Are there some new treatments that appeared recently to counteract exhaustion and pains ? Do people group themselves in associations to better fight against this disaster ?
Avatar f tn I lost 17 pounds of that but I was stuck there. I am 53 and was considering bypass surgery when miracle of miracles I got a job at a shrink’s office and he put me on Topamax. All the years of asking doctors for help and surgery was all they offered me. I will not ruminate about that…. However, my experience is this, one week on 25 mg, no effect, after a few days on 50mg lose of appetite and weight lose began.
Avatar n tn I have yet to find a definite answer, though I have had my hormones tested and discovered all of my hormones are out of balance. I'm in the process of trying bioidentical hormone replacement to see if that helps. Hope you find some answers.
865902 tn?1239312521 Only uninsured patients are painfully aware of the cost of unnecessry tests. 3. Lack of personal culpability by doctors - If I order an unnecessary test or expensive drug, I am not harmed by the waste. For example, it is common practice by emergency physicians in our area to get a chest x-ray on children with fever. Most of this is related to defensive medicine which is understandable in the ER, but clinically the test is often not warranted.

645800 tn?1466864555 I think I would also like to try and talk them into one of those along with the additional knee control units so that maybe I won't be constantly hurting my knees like I do now. Right after that is my appointment to get my hearing aids adjusted. Hopefully they will be able to program them to work for me with this darn MS. Since I have been wearing them it is much easier for me to hear and understand things of TV most of the time.
685623 tn?1283485207 In my experience in practice as well as with the NUMEROUS cats I have kept over the years, I think I can give you a pretty good understanding of the reasons behind both sides of this debate. Removing the cat's front claws, or onychectomy, is a procedure performed only by veterinarians. While there are various methods used (Resco, disarticulation, laser, etc), the goal is to remove the claw and the third digit of the toe.
Avatar f tn I just wonder what all of the people in the US would think if America had socialized medicine. the rich, the poor middle class Years ago i worked with a nurse from England and she was apalled at the medical situation here.A man came to the ER, He had a heart attack, the hosp refused treatment because he had no job or money or insurance, he died in the parking lot.
Avatar n tn I'm quite scared to be fair Does any one know how much it would cost to have the surgery I need in a uk private hospital? Sorry to ask so many questions but what are they going to do if/when I have surgery, will they just pop them back in or pull them out or something else Sorry that I'm a pain in the bum but I'm really worried! Thanks!
Avatar m tn The neurologist also performed an EEG (everything was done at the office, except the MRI, in case you are worried about how much all this will cost you...). The EEG measures electrical activity of the brain, both at rest and under stimulation. What they did during my procedure was put this cap on your head lined with sensors in a dark room and have you close your eyes. They read the activity for about 5 minutes or so then, they switch to the stimulation part of the testing.
572651 tn?1333939396 ) Just for another comparison, hubby's arthroscopic knee surgery was billed at $4375 from the surgery center plus $1650 from the surgeon. The surgery center will accept $2493 from insurance and the surgeon will accept $734. Neither gets anything from us. Anesthesia hasn't billed yet. Maybe they're sleeping?

748543 tn?1463449675 In simple terms incorrect posture is due to a twisted spine, which barring accidents or skeletal abnormalities- like a short leg, is due to an incorrect position of the skull. The position of the skull is influenced by the position of the lower jaw and ultimately the position of the jaw is mandated by the eruption pattern and final position of the teeth. Hence your bite is dictating your posture. Ever wonder why your chiropractic adjustments don't hold for long?
Avatar m tn And I will only add that altho you may pay premiums, lets remember you get that cost because you belong to a pool of people making it possible for you to get that rate, and when you go to the doctor there is an agreement between your insurance company and the provider of that cost of service. That deduction if you will. When you are private pay and go for that same treatment, you dont get discounts, you get the full amount billed to you. So there are always two sides of the same coin.
Avatar f tn 000 for what you had done to me doesnt sound too bad as you say with the cost of drugs etc,I come from England and a lot of my family live there they dont have wonderful experiences of Government run medicine , if we get a better system than they have I will be glad but I know it is worrysome when any tests like Mammograms have to be got privatly ,and its expensive,unless a woman is over 50 , my daughter is at risk from her fathers side,not mine 3 family members have had breast cancer, one found
1684282 tn?1505701570 I am becoming somewhat frustrated with the way a lot of my colleagues practice medicine. Disenchanted, angry would be the other words that could be used. We all get ostensibly that same training and all of us are supposedly in it to help our patients. So, how come have I been getting so many letters lately on my addiction forum from desperate people unable to quit taking the tramadol pills that their own kind doctors have so freely prescribed for them?
748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
Avatar f tn It's these days of law suits and fancy offices, medical centers, etc, that the cost of basic care has gone out of sight. The only thing I agree with in the health care plan is the idea of not allowing insurance companies to deny coverage to those with pre-existing conditions.
