Dawn, I can only tell you about my experience with Aspirus Hospital in Wausau WI. They have worked with me 100% and I could not be more happy. My insurance only paid $15,000 toward the total surgery, doctor visits and pre-op evaluations so I have a lot left to pay. They are not even paying anything toward the post-op visits, so it is an on-going thing. But, I signed some paperwork saying I would pay about $150.00 a month and more if I could, but less if I had to, and they agreed to that. I pay them monthly and get another bill the next month and everything is going real smoothly. It will take me years to pay this off but it has been worth it. The surgeon's office is the same way. I do not have any set amount to pay there either, but I pay what I can every month and they are satisfied. If you work with them, they will work with you. At least that is what we have found here. Good luck with making your plans. Carol Mancl

Congratulations on your surgery date! I have some Zen Wisdom for you - Nothing exists but momentarily...One thing flows into another...observe things as they are, let everything go as it goes. This is to put everything under control in its widest sense. --- May God keep you close to his side as you travel your new journey. You will have ups and downs. You can always turn to us, your AMOS family, we will give support, comfort and encouragement. You will find this will be the best thing you could ever have done for yourself as well as your family. I know that was true for me. Keep us posted when you reach the "other" side. I pray for a speedy and easy recovery for you. Don’t forget to update your profile at least monthly. We all like to see how we are doing!!! Make sure you take pictures. It’s great to see the new you emerge!!! Not to mention the look on YOUR face when you look at those pictures and compare them in a few months! It’ll be a BIG WOW!!! Please remember too, that this is a *tool* to use. Make sure you use it wisely. Choose the right foods and measurements wisely! Feel free to look at my profile and see my ups and downs and know I’d not change a thing with anything I’ve experienced.
