Mastectomy Bill in Congress

I was thinking of a nasty rant about insurance companies and those lovely folks that run them for profit. Health should not be for the profit of big corps. Sorry I can't be a capitalist on this. I do want to appeal to all the bloggers out there to consider 2-5 minutes of you time.

I assume somehow corps. are better than socialized medicine. I am not really sure what's the best. I do know a mastecomy as an outpatient procedure is one of the cruelest things I can possibly think of. I have had family and friends that have had this procedure and it takes several weeks to reduce the pain and swelling, that doesn't count the drain tubes that are inserted under the arms. Men You better get on this Wagon if this includes some woman in your life. All of you have one.
I wonder and have to once again ponder if women's health care isn't just on the substandard side. For years women with heart problems were ignored. The flip side of that one was men were checked rechecked and pampered by their doctors.
I wonder if we could just have drive by ops for men with say prostrate cancer. You know just whack if off and send em home.

Mastectomy Bill in Congress
If you know anyone who has had a mastectomy there is a lot of
discomfort and pain afterwards. Insurance companies are trying to
make mastectomy's an outpatient procedure. Let's give women the
chance to recover properly in the hospital for 2 days after surgery.
Mastectomy Bill in Congress
It takes 2 seconds to do this and is very important...please take
the time and do it really quick!
Breast Cancer Hospitalization Bill - Important legislation for all
women.
Please send this to everyone in your address book. If there was ever
a time when our voices and choices should be heard, this is one of
those times. If you are receiving this it's because I think you will
take the 30 seconds to go and vote on this issue and send it on to
others you know who will do the same.
There's a bill called the Breast Cancer Patient Protection Act which
will require insurance companies to cover a minimum 48-hour hospital
stay for patients undergoing a mastectomy. It's about eliminating
the "drive-through mastectomy" where women are forced to go home
hours after surgery against the wishes of their doctor, still groggy
from anesthesia and sometimes with drainage tubes still attached.
Lifetime Television has put this bill on their web page with a
petition drive to show your support. Last year over half the House
signed on.
PLEASE!! Sign the petition by clicking on the web site below. You
need not give more than your name and zip code number.
