    Default You won't believe this !!!!

    I went in for my endoscopy on Wed. and I told him I did not want my throat dialated unless it was necessary, well I guess he thought it was. All went well until the end. My two front teeth have crowns on them,from when I was very young and wanted to be a dancer when I grew up but I was spinning around on a newly waxed kitchen floor and fell flat on my face. Well fast forward.. anyway when I woke from the anestesia (sp?) they said my crown and tooth under it broke off. I had to go immediately to the dentist..still wigged out from being drugged up and since the pred has made my gums and teeth not as good they need to make me a bridge with 6 crowns. And the grand total of that is going to be over $ 6000.00. The hosp board is going to decide IF and what they will pay and let me know Wed. In the mean time they gave me a fake tooth that wont't stay in. My throat was killing me, have had a low grade fever and now the stitches are coming out. I am very surprised I don't have in ulcer. No vacations for me this year

    You shouldn't have to pay a cent for the dental work. I'd tell the hospital board that if they don't make it right, your lawyer will be in contact!!!

    I'm with Pete on this one.
    That is so frustrating.

    Gah!!! I agree. They need to pay for this. Crazy! You have my sympathy. I have been dealing with problem teeth all my life! Let us know what happens.

    Oh, crap, Debbie. I'm so sorry! I'm with everyone else. It wasn't your fault and you shouldn't have to pay a dime. I'm not sure why you need a bridge and all those crowns right away, but I'm not a dentist and I do get it about having weaker teeth. You might as well try to get the hospital to pay for all of them so you don't have to later. If it was me, I'd be sh*t out of luck, since I just plain don't have the money. Good luck.🍀

    I think I am going to call a personal injury att. tomorrow. The dentist did make this thing for me called a flipper. ...its just one tooth,but it has the backing like a denture, BUT the thing with that is I can't sleep or eat with it so wtf good is it !!! The reason they need to do so many Anne is because my other teeth aren't strong enough to support it. I don't have the money for it either Anne but a have a care credit card. Its like taking out a loan. But this was the last thing I expected. The hosp is going to have a meeting and I will hear there decision Tues ( same day I go back to the dentist ) so I hope I can find a lawyer that can pull this off !

    I hope all goes good with getting the hospital to pay for all of it, I was their fault. I don't see how they could get away with not paying for them to do them right.

    Well tried to call different attys. and no one would take the case. Go figure, they may need that place someday ! I also got a call from the hosp. board administator and he said the the most they WOULD have paid would have been $50 -75.00 andt they call this exceptional risk and they will not pay for anything. NOW the war is on.I argued with him for awhile and said that my dentist told me 2 years ago my teeth needed replaced then its not their fault. So I went to get my stitches out and asked who told them info. and the dentist said he talked to him but the sec. also told him my history. Now I may be wrong but I worked with drs. before and that violates hippa rules. They had no right saying anything.She even said she was sorry because they probably would have paid if that wasn't in my history. So I am going to again contact a different lawyer and see about sueing them for releasing my info. I am not going to let this dentist work on me again and my gastro also who I also saw today told me to write a letter to the ceo of the hosp. I doubt that will do any good but I will.This is really getting ridiculous.He told me it was only a tooth and to stop carrying the weight of the world on my shoulders. Needless to say we had words.Well that's the latest update.Tomorrow is another day !
