I really didn't have that much trouble. Once I finally got healthcare, and had some decent cash saved, I went to the EN, they called my provider to see if they'd cover it, they did, and we scheduled surgery 1.5 weeks later.
It wasn't deemed cosmetic (I've still got the same ole big honker after all) and it was most certainly pre-existing, but Wellpath still covered it. I guess you just need to go give it a shot and see what your insurance is willing to put up with. It's not like anyone will force you to go ahead with surgery if your insurance says no.
On a side note, now that I've tried it, I totally don't get why druggies abuse Percoset so much. All I feel is dizzy and sleepy. I'd so much rather have some weed right now.
Now all I need is one of those Daido Juku helmets to protect my investment.
