Do you just put your trust out there and hope for the best in return?
My son came home with a cold on Friday from school.
I am in fear of getting it with my surgery so close.
I called my surgeon to ask how to prevent this from getting put off and the office told me I had no schedule for surgery...someone put me down for just a consultation instead of surgery.
I couldn't believe that someone who works in a medical office could make such a mistake.
And not even care that they put someones life in danger.
I immediately demanded a consult today so I could keep my date for what I thought was my surgery.
They didn't care to rush or make me comfortable. I had to sit all day waiting and thus had to have my hubby come home from work to get my son from school. Because if I left their office they would charge me $250!!!! For their mistake charge me and leave my son to be taken to child services for not picking him up on time. For just a 2 second consultation to prove I was who I was.
It just burns me that if I wouldn't have called to ask about the cold that I would have thought I was showing up for surgery. Why is communication in a field that deals with life and death so lax?
It makes no sense that I have been dealing with this forever and to find one doctor, a girl btw, that knew from that 2 second consult what I had been going thru for the past 4 years.
She automatically told me what caused this was the major surgeries that I had 4 years ago and that they shock the gallbladder. Women suffer from this disease more than men for just that reason.
Apparently the gallbladder is a delicate thing that can't take shock. It is not encased in muscle like our other organs and doesn't recover from things so easily. Without even asking me what I have been thru in 4 years of doctors misdiagnosing this, this surgeon spewed off my whole history and looked at me and said word for word of what I wrote on my last blog post.
Saying that the doctors in my life were dismissing me as crazy and that I was just looking for attention. Because they were never finding anything wrong. I wanted to hug her.
She completely understood me.
So now my surgery is put off by one day, one day more than I would like but what am I to do?
Thank you all for your comments on my last post and I hope to come home good and full of life to get the old Amy back creating and living like a normal girl in her 30's would.
So now that my surgery is not til Friday I will be around til I go under.
