Hi Ladies, I posted this one the Miscarriage Forum, but i'm wondeirng if any of you might be able to answer this?
I had a
D&C on June 5th for a Blighted Ovum miscarriage. It was our first
pregnancy and even though it was found early in the pregnancy it was
still devastating. I've been doing good emotionally after the surgery,
it was almost like a closure for me, all up until today. I received a
bill in the mail from the surgery center and when I opened it I couldn't
believe my eyes what the description of the surgery said. It reads
"Treatment Of Missed Abortion". I would never in my life have an
Abortion!!!! Isn't it supposed to read "Treatment of a Miscarriage"? A
blighted Ovum was a pregnancy where the baby never developed and made
it to the sac so I don't understand how this is considered an
"Abortion"? I am just appalled, my dr never mentioned that this is the
description of this surgical procedure, in fact on the papers I signed
at the surgery center before I went in said "Dilation & Curretage"
for miscarriage. Talk about a way to re-open old wounds and make a
person feel like a piece of s****. Sorry, i'm just so upset and
confused by this right now, and I was doing so good with healing
emotionally and moving forward. For people who have received their
bills, what was the description on yours?
