surgery canceled night before

HI this is my first posting. I have been reading many of the messages getting ready for the big day. I had six weeks to wait and it seemed like an eternity. I had everything ready mom was here to visit , husband taking time off . Temp hired at work. I got a call at 5pm from the nurse saying insurance had not given the final approval. Agghhhh. Has anyone ever had this happen to them? Why would they even schedule me if they did not have an approval? The good news is it did get approved I am now scheduled for Oct 14th. And to top it all off it had allready been approved it just did not get to where it needed to be. I am trying to think positive here. God obviously did not want me to have the surgery today. Feeling a little crazy today, my life was on hold now I just go on for a few weeks I guess.

Julie, same thing happened to me....all of the fear rushing through my soul for 3 get the same phone call. My surgery was originally scheduled for Sept.16th...I'd be on my way to recovery by now! I had to fight with the insurance company and my dr's office would not reschedule until they got the surgery is now scheduled for October 7th. Hang in there, we'll be ok...!

So sorry you gals had to deal with cancelled and resheduled surgeries. But just some words of advice, keep records of everything ie bills, benefit statements etc. Its over 2 months since my surgery, and I'm still dealing with the insurance company to get the bills paid. For example, I just got a bill for the pathology, turned out that they had sent the bill to the wrong address! Also, keep a phone log of all your phone calls, who you talked to, time and date, and what the call was about. You'd think that the hospital, doctors, insurance company, etc. would be experts at this and be able to figure out everything on their own, but you have to keep your eye on them, something as simple as a typo can throw a big wrench in the works! Just a word of warning to keep good records.

How frustrating!

How frustrating - the one tiny part of this whole thing that we have any control over and even that is ripped away! I'm so sorry that happened to you. I'm half waiting for the same thing to happen to me - my neighbor works for my doctor and told me she thought he had a conference the same day as my surgery.

I just have to believe God is in control and we'll all come through this just fine.

Jules, You are NOT
I waited 6 MONTHS just to get scheduled ( kaiser, sheesh).
Would have had my TAH yesterday, then the phone I'm going in the day after you, the 15th. I was devastated...had all my ducks in a for my child, my house, kennel reservations, even went so far as to drain my pool. Of course a hot spell had to hit after that...go figure! Anyway, after a few days, I got used to the idea, and started to find reasons why my new date was better. God DID have a reason. My neighbor said maybe the surgeon would have had a hangover that day
Hang in there...I'm with ya....
