First... fu**.. got my text deleted, here once again.
Last thursday didnt slept.. I was in pain.. I had an idea on what it could be. It was on the right side of my abdomen, below my ribs.
Since I hate hospital, I first called my mother at home (she a nurse, can be helpful) She tought it was probably my liver, maybe some stones.. so she told me to drink some hot water and go pharmacy and ask for something about the liver to help it.
Well, finally, my friend took me at the hospital instead. What a good surprise, since I dont like being in that kind of place.
At home, in Quebec, healthcare is freeee ! BUT, you can wait 8h at the emergency admission to see a doctor... or wait 3 months for a needed surgery, that is not an emergency... go it ? Basically the system is too big and its shit.
Here, wow.. around 6am in the morning I got there, fill paper, 5min later I already see someone who take infos on me (pressure, weight, age, etc)
15min later I see what seem to be the doctor in service.. fews things happens, more tests, etc..
At noon (12h00), I was having a surgery... apparently, even if im healthy and somewhat in shape, my appendice decided to quit on me... Then 24h later I was already back home, no pain, 3 scars and somewhat tired.
Thanks to travel inssurence , costed me 500$ ish for 6 months, and they covered everything of the surgery.. a nice total of 2700$ ! Im happy to not pay for it, also 1st time I use an inssurance that actually worth it. I google this surgery for USA... around 15k-18k$... is that possible ? shit, its unreal !
So , assurance company was very good, fast and efficient.. And the hospital... wow.. got treated like a new born baby ! I even had like 4 nurses at the same time in my room (private).. maybe because im also handsome ?
Anyway, not so bad variance given how it went overall... And finally, they left me with papers, receipt and a surprise in the enveloppe, a picture that I share with you here... I dont know why they do that.. Maybe they need to proove to me they actually really did the surgery ?
