It has been a year . . .
« on: September 09, 2013, 08:18:11 PM »
It was a year in August since I had my hump removed.

Guess what? The insurance finally paid the damn bill!

I think I am still doing OK. But I still keep a close eye on the area.

If it does grow back, I won't have it removed again.

Once was enough.

HUGS,

Mark

I can't believe it's been a year already!  Good your insurance paid the bill; insurance companies are slow moving, aren't they.

Your a brave Man Mark .

It seems that insurence companies are only slow in paying out. Do you get to claim lost interest? I know the answer already.

That's what I thought too.

Mark, don't get freaked out after you wash the T-shirt you bought. It was small to begin with and mine shrunk to the "boys department" size.  >:(
