Healthcare is so ridiculous. It's such scam.

Dude, I'd do your appendix for $5K and let you hang at my place for like 4 hours afterwards.

Just, fyi, I'm not a doctor, but I'd read diys until I puked before I began the procedure...promise. Really. I might close my eyes for part of the operation, but I'd figure out a way to get you to sleep, so you wouldn't know.

What color thread would you like me to use? Green?

Re: where else can ya get a room for 2 hours for 7k?

Healthcare here is highway robbery. I was assaulted a few years ago. Went to hospital. All i got was a pain shot and a cane and some xrays. Then i laid in a bed for 4 hrs. Bill was around 5k if i remember. So i was assaulted and then had to pay for the care of my injuries.

same, had a bunch of hardware put into my spine too. Titanium rods, screws, and a cage. I lost two vertebrae discs and L1-L3 was crushed and also had pinched my spinal cord rendering me temporarily/partially paralyzed. So a cage was put in and used to hold my spine together and they pieced together the bone fragments and used some sort of glue (I think?) which fused my lower spine.

Talk about having back pain and lower pressure in my back everyday. Oh well.
