Seattle People

Ok I had ruled out surgery totally after finding out two things. One the OS I went to see, will charge $12000 and he somehow expects me to pull it from my A$$. I had talked to some people at work who deal with insurance companies (I work in a hospital) and they all told me that my insurance would mo...

Well thank you everyone. I have thought of nothing else for the past 2 days. The OS has given me scenarios. 1. Proceed with no surgery, with the Ortho straightening out my teeth as best as possible.

As a Operating Room Nurse I am sworn to secrecy about the things said during surgeries :P

(let me reassure you any nurse would not let anything demeaning or harmful happen to her patient while undergoing surgery)
