Well the very prestigious Dr. Selesnick just called me himself to let me know that the very prestigious Dr. Stieg does not accept my insurance. Since Stieg is the lead on this whole thing that I would have to pay out of pocket for most of this. So I didn't get an actual number but I was guessing that I would have to pay on this for the rest of my life.
So the new plan is : Have to switch the surgery to Sloan Cancer Center (this is not cancer though) so my insurance will cover it. So this means that I cannot have surgery on the 14th and will have to wait to be scheduled for surgery again with another surgeon.
I am actually bummed that I have to wait again. Mentally I have been preparing myself for this for over a month. And I really like Dr. Stieg-----the new surgeons name is Dr. Gutin.
