It's been a real nightmare. I have recivied my first bill from the hospital and just about had a heart attack. $60.000 and i still have two surgeries to go. I was only in the hospital for two and One half days. Just the external fixator alone was $13.000.Not to mention 18 months out of my life. The bill goes on & on. $22.000 for sterile equip in the surgery room. I wonder who makes up these prices. $17.50 for each 10Mg Hydrocodone pill that they gave me and I took quite a few, 14 to be exact. My morphine bill was a whopping $7800.00. Each screw for the titanium plate was $140.00 There wasn't but 16 of them. I don't know if thats good or bad. I would like to compare prices with other people who have had this type of experence. Well anyways a little warning to all those people that like to mow there lawns on the weekends, Watch out for rocks that have an estimated speed of just under 400 MPH off the tip of the lawnmower blade. And believe me when i say that they will go straight through a human leg without even slowing down. I know this because i lived and am still living it. So be careful guys and girls. If it happened to me, It can happen to you?????.
