Not What the Doctor Said
Yes ...this would be a bad day. Things can always be worse.
Well ...it turns out that the message left by the office nurse clearing me last week isn't exactly what the doctor said this morning. He called me to tell me that based on one of the reports I would have to have a certain procedure. I did wonder about that and was going to call him anyway this morning.
And even with requesting the earliest available appointment at any office, I can't get the procedure until the 23rd of this month and so I have to think about this for the next 18 days. I don't recall how long results take. I did have it once before and results were normal. I am wondering if there is a marked change as compared to last reports. I want to call back and ask but what will that knowledge do for me? And then I 'll be taking up his time. Although he could relay info through his nurse. Also, if things are the same, I'd probably feel better about that.
I really wanted this done at the hospital because I know how painful it is, but he really wanted it done in the office. It's a good thing he isn't a urologist or I might've had stents placed IN me in the office instead of the OR. Okay ...he couldn't do that (right?), I'm just saying.
I am feeling pretty down at the moment. But I have to remember that lab results from another doctor were good. My pap test was normal. And other things on the 2 ultrasounds were normal.
I'll rally back by tomorrow. :)
Anyway ...again ...I ask for anyone so inclined to say a prayer for a good report from the biopsy that will clear me (most important), that I tolerate the procedure better than the last time and for peace.
Thank you. :)
PS- Eh ...the new Jack Bauer spin off of 24 (Live Another Day), starts tonight - 2 hr episode. Things already look better. :)
