Just when you thought the experience was over…
I dragged the results of all 23 exams back to my gynecologist. I had already eyed all the paperwork and only identified one potential concern. There was a 7 and the apparent safe range was something like 8 to 50 something or other.
But lesson learned, negative doesn’t always mean positive.
First, apparently I’m missing a slew of hepatitis vaccinations, according to Brazilian standards. Second, my doctor told me I need to have a surgery. Nothing serious, totally preventative. But, I’m wondering how our Brazilian insurance is going to respond to this preventative surgery. In the U.S., the response from the insurance company would be, “No way! We don’t fix it ’til it’s broke.”
I’m hoping since they were cool with all the preventative tests, they are willing to support the results as well.
