Surgery canceled after 3 months of preparation!

Hi everyone, I have been reading here since I found out I had to have a TAH for huge fibroids in November.. This site is sooo helpful !!!After many tests, 4 units of blood banked and all pre-op done I had my date for today!! Finally!!! Well yesterday at 12:00 I got a call from my surgeons office and it seems my primary care physician gave me a surgeon that was not in network.. and yes they could still do surgery but I would have to pay for ALL of it!!So we had to cancel. I cannot believe no one caught this mistake, I was so caught up in the whirlwind of tests and nerves that I wrongly assumed my primary doctor knew what she was doing!!!!! And surely someone would have let me know they were not in the network... like my insurance?? NOT!!!!! I have been so upset but my surgeon that was supposed to do operation is helping me find a good replacement and is going to see if he can get the new doc to expediate this before I have to redo everything! And he even promised to look in on me . He was as upset as I was. I am better today ! But wonder if this has happened to anyone else??

Oh Sweetie, I am so very sorry that this happened to you. It makes me so mad :burning: when people can't do their jobs right.

I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers that you get a surgeon that is in your network asap, so that you do not have to redo everything, or wait very much longer.

Please keep us posted on what you find out.

Love & s

You sound like you have my kind of luck with the medical profession. No records, lost records, waiting for referral that I didn't have to wait for, the list is long. What a nightmare!

Well, maybe the surgeon will make it all work out and you will get a proper referral and can go ahead as planned. You may want to keep on top of it with the insurance company so the new authorization gets handled properly.
