Hi guys it’s been a while that I have been feeling pain and nausea . I finally went to a hospital and through a few exams the doc found out that I have gallstones and it’s been getting worst . I have an health insurance that does not cover the surgery. I went to Jackson memorial hospital emergency once and over there they said that a lady from finance would come to me and talk about payment plan. When she came she said that the surgery could be around U$50k and that I could do a payment plan. The thing is that I didn’t want to get involved with more bills to pay. At the last minute my wife spoke with her mom and we bought my ticket to Brazil so we could use the public hospitals here . Since it’s free we wouldn’t have to make any type of payment plan. The thing is that when I got here the videos that they use for gallbladder surgeries weren’t working and my doctor said that I should wait for it to get fixed or try private clinics. The thing is that we never know if the government will even fix anything . So she also works in a clinic and send me a estimate of how much the surgery would cost.
I only have until April 19 here. I need to do the surgery ASAP and go back since my wife is working and paying all the bills herself .
So any help would be really appreciated !

Thank you !

Oi pessoal, faz um tempo que estou sentindo dor e náusea. Eu finalmente fui para um hospital e através de alguns exames o médico descobriu que eu tenho cálculos biliares e está ficando pior. Eu tenho um seguro de saúde que não cobre a cirurgia. Eu fui à emergência do hospital Jackson memorial uma vez e lá eles disseram que uma senhora do financiamento viria até mim e falaria sobre o plano de pagamento. Quando ela chegou ela disse que a cirurgia poderia sair em torno de U$50 mil e que eu poderia fazer um plano de pagamento. O problema é que eu não queria me envolver com mais contas para pagar. No último minuto minha esposa falou com a mãe dela e compramos minha passagem para o Brasil para podermos usar os hospitais públicos aqui. Como é grátis, não teríamos que fazer nenhum tipo de plano de pagamento. A única coisa é que quando cheguei aqui os aparelhos de vídeo que eles usam para cirurgias da vesícula biliar não estavam funcionando e meu médico disse que eu deveria esperar para que ele fosse consertado ou tentasse clínicas particulares. O fato é que nunca sabemos se o governo vai consertar alguma coisa.
ela também trabalha em uma clínica e me enviou uma estimativa de quanto custaria a cirurgia.
Eu só tenho até 19 de abril aqui. Eu preciso fazer a cirurgia o mais rápido possível e voltar, desde que minha esposa está trabalhando e pagando todas as contas sozinha.
Então, qualquer ajuda seria muito apreciada!

Obrigado !
