Well that hurt


#81

Is the engine tranny salvageable?


#82

Yeah. I’ll be parting it out when they release it.


#83

It’s cursed now

did you not read the story about the crashed plane parts they put on other planes

some scary stuff there

Demons in them parts now - must be melted then melted again


#84

If it’s a manual trans and it was in gear when he hit you, even if it seems okay… the pilot bearing will go south in a few hundred miles or less.


#85

I’ll be separating trans and engine to sell anyway. Clutch hardware will be thrown away


#86

What’s the latest, bud?


#87

Nothing new as of yet.

I have a follow up and xray on the 2nd and I’ll have more further.

Less pain, lots of muscle popping.

Doc said muscle popping was a result of trauma and lack of movement due to being in a brace 24/7? So its normal.


#88

Yeah, I had that recently in a shoulder. It locked up for almost a year, and when therapy finally got it moving, it sounded like a popcorn machine for weeks.


#89

Adhesive capsulitis?


#90

Precisely.


#91

My wife had the Frozen Shoulder. It is not pleasant.


#92

Burns mostly healed, the one on lower back is still pretty big.

Fractures look good but one vertebrae is moving forward.

Looks like I’m wearing this collar longer, and a possible fused bone in the future.


#93

Dawn had that

She had it fixed -


#94

So hit my max out of pocket and deductible.
Was $2056 or so for the 2 days in the hospital, about $650 for the amberlamps.

Everything next will be only paying 10%… problem is the average spinal fusion is about $100k. Not considering the days in the hospital.

:frowning:


#95

Well you should be reassured to know that it in super capitalist USA you can always take out a predatory loan to get the care you need.


#96

How much does your insurance cover for the surgery?


#97

At this point, since I’ve maxed out my out of pocket ($2000) and deductible ($300) all I pay is 10%, and that covers surgeries too.

Unless I don’t understand my benefits, it sounds like it’s just 10% from now on. But I dont know what a covered in out of pocket expenses.
But 10% of $100k is still a lot.


#98

That sucks but at least you have some coverage. Isn’t there anybody that can explain your policy to you?


#99

Sounds like you might want to give your HR Benefits Enrollment person a jingle.


#100

There is someone, but unfortunately I always forget.

That and I feel slightly dyslexic. Oh well. Lol

If I ever remember, I’d give them a call… but there’s another mystery.

I received $1250 for 12 days of short term disability. But my union book only says I should be getting $300 every 6 days…lol
