The next morning, a different OB-GYN came in, and after reading our report, he said something similar to the first doctor, and we asked if there were different ways to check for amniotic fluid. For leaks, she suggested the use of chemical test strips for verification. After using a chemical dipstick test, it was found to be negative and there was no sign of amniotic fluid. The new test is negative, which confuses us. My dear wife has received a lot of injections for this, and she has to wear a device to detect her own and baby's heartbeat for nearly a day.
These tortures are caused banner design by the misdiagnosis of the doctor on the first day. Is it right? Because the two test results were opposite, the doctor the next day still wanted us to continue the treatment and examination, and check the situation the next day. We spent the rest of the second day in confusion. On the morning of the third day, a chief doctor of the obstetrics and gynecology department came. After understanding the situation of the previous two days, he decided to come for another examination. And after he used the microscope to look at the newly removed sample again, the final judgment was negative. After about 48 hours of worrying for no reason, we can finally rest assured that the baby will not be born immediately.
The director of the obstetrics and gynecology department thought that the doctor on the first day must have misjudged, and announced that we could pack up and go home on the same day. Two weeks after we went home, the baby hadn’t been born yet, and the hospital sent the bill. We didn’t look at it, but it was fine. As soon as we opened it, we saw an exorbitant bill. We were hospitalized for 2 nights, and the hospitalization fee was more than 9,000 US dollars. , and the cost of medicines are almost more than 5,000 US dollars, which adds up to about 15,000 US dollars (about 450,000 Taiwan dollars), about 5,000 US dollars should be borne by ourselves, and the remaining part of the insurance pays 10,000 US dollars. Insurance in the United States generally has a Copay for medical treatment, just like a registration fee, and there is an out of pocket limit per year, which is the most likely to be paid in a year. My dear wife's insurance at that time was $5,000 a year out of pocket, and we had to pay all the expenses for hospitalization, and the rest of the insurance would pay.
