(Similar to post on WMD.)
I found out today that my current crappy HMO is actually good for something - they'll pay 100% of the LAP for endo, as long as it's coded for pain of course. We're planning on switching to a PPO at the end of the year, but I doubt the PPO will pay 100% so might as well take advantage.
I guess it's time to call the GYN again, I haven't been there in MONTHS. I'm just worried that I'll get denied the surgery because I've already been in for IF. And because my doctor and I talked about endo, and I told him my cramps weren't TOO terrible. The consensus on WMD seems to be that I just call and say my cramps have gotten much worse since then, think that will work? :)
I know, I'm obsessing. I'm nervous about not being entirely truthful (although there have been months when the pain has been HORRIBLE). And yes, I'm also VERY nervous about having surgery!! You ladies that had it, how bad was it? How much time did you need to recover? Is there a particular time of the month they do it?
