Hello my name is Jessica Macking. I am 27 years old and have struggled with endometriosis for the last 12 years. For those of you that know I have struggled with this diagnosis for along time. I've had best of rochester treatments, from several laproscope d&cs, leeps, series of lupron shots, but they can't fix me. This is why I'm traveling to see a specialist in NYC. My consult apt and MRI visit trip was 3 days, aug 7,8,9 and ended up costing 1500 last week.
Now I am scheduled for a specialized excision surgery 9/11. I will go for blood work, pre operation apt and biopsy Sept 5&6 then return 9/10 for an early start on 9/11. The hotel in queens saved me a bunch, gave a diacount. We booked a flight for the last trip, as Dr suggested I won't make the 8 hr drive post surgery. These two trips are at 1350 so far already and we haven't gotten there.
This procedure is excision, and is the best treatment for my diagnosis and will stop the continuous reoccurance. I can't have a hysterectomy yet, I've had 2 meetings/apts to try.. they won't bc of my age. I am beyond anxious to the cost of travel and procedure. The insurance company and Dr office are giving me run around and are denying to pay for out of area specialist after previously stating they'd cover it all. I am working to dispute this, and figure it out but so far it's not looking good, and I may have to pay a big chunk more for the mri, biopsy, consult and procedure. Any help is more than appreciated and needed so thank you!!.
