Treatment in a week or two
Hi, I have posted on here a few times about my daughter Avery's hemangioma's (she has 3) We went to see Dr Levitin and Dr Waner today. 6 weeks ago they told me that her H was too small for treatment. Today they said they feel she should have a steroid injection in her upper lip. If I dont get the steroid treatment now, he feels she will end up having to have surgery in a few months. Dr Levitin said that while she is under the anesthesia they could laser her other 2 others as well (they are both pretty small) He said she should have this done in a week or two from now (that suprised me!). I am very nervous! I know there are children on here that go through much worse, but Im still really scared. I 100% trust the Dr's though. Anyone have experience with steroid injections? Her H is under the skin and is a slight blue/purple tint. I forgot to ask if the injection will help the color. He said there is a chance the laser can flatten the H. Tomorrow I have to deal with all the insurance stuff. They told me at the office, the injection is $500, the anesthesia is 1500, the lasers are 4k each!!!!!! I have bcbs Personal Choice. They told me I have an out of pocket max of 1000, so hopefully they dont fight me on this! Anyone have the same insurance? Thanks so much for any help or advice!
