I had 2 FWBs when I was 20. My (ex)BF of 2yrs had cheated and left me for a girl we worked with. There was almost no intimacy, despite my trying, because he was really just using me (free place to live,food,rides etc) until he could find someone he wanted. After going so long without it, I went wild. 2 FWBs, they knew about each other, they had their scheduled nights they'd come. This went on for about 7 months. It was great. It ended because I moved across the country.

I don't know if I'd find a FWB just to have sex with if my DH's penis didn't work. He was on some medication once that really made it hard for him to get it up. Of course it frustrated us both, but we got insanely creative. He used a lot of toys on me, gave me all the oral I wanted, made sure I got off, etc. I mean, it wasn't like your typical sex session, but we were both at least satisfied. I am not saying finding a FWB is a horrible idea, but I'd probably exhaust all my other options first.

In response to a confession. For the last time, I DID NOT say 'there's nothing wrong with his heart.' I said he went to a GP for left shoulder pain similar to pain he had after a torn rotator cuff 20 years ago, the GP did an EKG because he was told DH had a mild heart attack five years ago, pronounced it normal, but referred him to a cardiologist. He pronounced the EKG 'fine,' but said arm pain can be indicative of impending heart attack (pain he's had for over two weeks now). Nobody would do the MRI DH asked for because they want to do big $$$ heart tests FOR COMPLAINTS THAT DH NEVER HAD. And I'm done trying to explain it over and over. I'm not complaining about anything other than doctors who order unnecessary tests. Can we move on to something else now? Geez!!!

I was with a man for 6 years who had a sexual issue. His penis worked but something was going on with him mentally that caused him not to be able to maintain it. We tried vitamins, supplements, having him quit smoking, cut back on drinking, talk to therapists (well, he'd bail when it got hard), you name it. He finally said he had a problem but he could live with it. I couldn't. He also wouldn't allow an open relationship. So I left. And he was devastated. But what's the point of having a relationship like a roommate?

And you still haven't answered why or how he had a heart attack if, according to you, there's nothing wrong with his heart.

First, a GP will not be able to read an EKG nearly as well as a cardiologist. And just about every GP will tell you that. That's why he referred you to a cardiologist. If you are concerned about them just milking you for money, go to a different cardio doc that's not affiliated with them. And just because your insurance company paid for something in the past, doesn't mean they pay for it now. Mine used to pay for more than one test in a day. Now they make me get one and wait for the results before they determine whether they will pay for the next one. Didn't used to be that way. Same plan, same company. A cardio wanted to do a stress echo for me last year. Insurance said no. Made him do a regular stress test first, then the other.

If your dh's penis didn't work and you've tried everything and finally said, "I won't live like this forever." And he said go #uck who you want, would you? Would you have an open marriage? This has been going on for 6 or 7 years now. I don't want to change my home situation. I just miss sex.

In response to a confession. The bottom line is that they have to clear him from a cardiac standpoint before proceeding with any other treatments. From everything you've said, his cardiologist hasn't done anything inappropriate. The only thing you should be questioning (medically, not billing) is any orthopedic doctor who is willing to work on your dh without having cardiac clearance. I know it's frustrating as hell, but based on his history and symptoms (which are not atypical, btw), they're treating him appropriately. I have this conversation with patients everyday, and I'm not judging you for being cynical. It's good to have a healthy bit of skepticism, especially when it comes to shady billing practices. I just hope your dh is okay.

In response to a confession. No I never worked in a doctor's office, but I billed group insurances and Medicare at a hospital. Why would a doctor know what insurance we have in the first place? Shouldn't they leave that to the office staff hired to handle insurance? We've had the same insurance for thirty years and I know it'll pay on two tests in the same day because I had he ABI and echo in the same day (when I presented with symptoms warranting them). Yes, I AM critical of health care and insurance companies...because we all should be. It pisses me off because it's this kind of crap that keeps health care costs so high. How many other patients are paying on tests they didn't need? And why have people here taken this subject on? DH has orthopedic symptoms and a cardiologist wants to order $16,000 worth of heart tests. We both have a problem with that. THE END

In response to a confession. Have you ever worked in a doctor's office? Most doctors have some idea of what insurance will and won't cover and I have seen where you can't get more than 1 test in a day. You seem over critical of health care... Why does it piss you off so much?
