I'm sure most of you remember this milestone procedure from last fall.
Well, just to remind you, it lasted about two weeks before beginning to fade away, and by Thanksgiving my voice was a bad as it was before the procedure.

A few of you I was able to speak to soon after it was done got a glimpse of the 'before' and 'after', and the 'after' was pretty damn good, wasn't it? I was hoping for some more of that this past several weeks as I patiently awaited to schedule a re-do.

Finally, finally, finally... the re-do was scheduled for tomorrow morning, but first Doctor wanted to consult with me one more time (yesterday) to explain stuff further, yadda yadda...
and decided to just go with the larynoscopy (the camera shoved through nostril) portion of the procedure to assess the situation then decided again just what other options may be favorable and less risky.

We already had approval from my insurance for the full injection procedure. This includes the camera thing. The whole process took 10 weeks waiting for approval and then getting a date/time scheduled.
Doctor told his staff to cancel the injection procedure and schedule it again as just the larynoscopy. They did.
Now, we can't get the insurance to approve the latter procedure in time for the appointment slot it took two months to schedule.

So, I asked why they didn't just go with what they had, bill their asses for the whole thing and just do half, claiming we had to abort midway due to complications, like what happened last October?

Yeah, well, too late now.

I'm one pissed off dude.
I mean, so blood spittin angry I can hardly cope.
I'm tired of this bullshit. I want it over.
