Second Time Around -- 8/4/17 Ins. Premitting

Postby radiodec » Tue Jul 11, 2017 2:00 pm

Well, I am back for another run through the tool rebuilder. After 4 1/2 years my AMS700LGX has developed a leak and is out of fluid. I have been there before so not as uncertain as I could be about the surgery. Expect that to be reasonably OK.

I have to wait on my insurance to say yea or nay. If nay, then have to put together the funds for a go so a delay.

I will be having the same doctor that did the original work do the revision. He did an excellent job the first time. No length loss other than what RP had stolen years before, not extremely uncomfortable, just a good as any surgery can be experience, worked great.

That said I am back for another round, just a little apprehensive, but more so about the insurance that the surgery.

I will be popping in from time to time as things develop.

Good fortune to all my bionic brothers and bionic brothers to be.
