So glad I did not let the VA approved surgeon operate on me… and If I had waited for Tri-west to get me another surgeon, surgery would be next year… they are slower than molasses at the Hilo VA office and the pencil pusher is going to find out, just like the VA directors I fought to get fired… play god, and their will be hell to pay….IG and I are old friends… what can I tell ya, I like pushing their corrupt ass buttons….
This eye surgeon let me ask questions and with all my brain injuries, so glad he did and his answers were opposite of what the other clinic suggested, so money is not this surgeons primary goal, patient care is…
I know the lens I will go with and what ever medicare does not cover, it will cost me, but hopefully by the time October is here, I will have better vision, once again…
As for the dental implants, from what my dentist told me, they have been approved and it will take up to 9 months to complete the proces… and we have our house up for sale… conumdrum…..
If the people who are in the know are right, we are hitting a housing bubble and unless we lower our price, we are out of reach to local buyers, but still out there for the cash buyers and they are out their….
So I started looking at the rental market on the island and will just have to play this as it plays out, because once the dental procedures start, their is no going back, unless I want just metal in my mouth…
I hope this works out the way we want, but things could get topsy turvy too and like any good prepper, I have played the possible scenarios out and I know I have options… eyes, they are the big deal, with them, I can drive and if house sells and I still have to be here, Mike and pups can go home… I rent me a studio… so, no matter what, I am getting this work done… took a year to get approval, do not care to start over again and not have any teeth at the same time….
So cataract and astigmatism correction lens is my choice… for near vision and wear glass’s for driving… back to my teenage years, when after the TIA on Japan, I had to start wearing glass’s… gee thanks mommy dearest….
Anyhow, happy camper, lots to look forward, and read all I could and the doc aswered my questions last week and this week… so, happy with both surgeons….
I just have one curiousity… how much weight will I loose??? I have already lost 8 pounds since the first of the month… got a feeling a few more are going to join them….
