Re: Health Insurance Provider HELP PLEASE

Most market place plans should. But I would expect they are expensive. You could contact the insurance company you have now and ask them if they have any market place plan.s And get prices if they do. Our go to your states market place (Affordble Care Act/Obama Care) site.

Re: infrapubic or penoscrotal

This is another personal choice. The infrapubic is said to be easier for reservoir placement but more difficult for pump placement. The penoscrotal is the opposite. Better for pump placement more difficult for reservoir. And as you said there are nerves up top to deal with. And I have seen 2 incisio...

Re: Dr. Kramer no longer with Chesapeake Urology

Wow! Back to the personal attacks on members. I really don't understand this. Why is it ok for a member to post praise in general terms in favor of a doctor but not permited to post negitive information in general terms? Especially if the member was a patient of the doctor. Why is first hand knowled...

Re: Dr. Kramer no longer with Chesapeake Urology

OS, I am not the friend you are writing about but I did reach out to Kramer. And others I have talked to did also. So while I can't speak for your friend I am sure that is not the reason for my experience with him. I have lots of reaching out e-mails saved to him. I to am not sure why some of us go ...

Re: Insurance Preapproval and Cost Estimate

Do you have other uro offices in your area you can call? I know insurance varies from state to state and company to company. Maybe from doctor to doctor. Might even ask to speek to another implant patient at your uro's office who had this done.

Re: Nerve block?

That fills in some blanks for me. I was given general for surgery but things seemed difficult to understand. Like why I lost over 2 hours for 30 minute surgery. I was in my room with the nurse and anestesiologist. He left and was gone for a long time. Nurse left and told me if she had not come back ...
