I know that I have been MIA for a while-you know how life gets in the way! I haven’t had much to report to be honest, but here are a few things.
Back in August, I wrote about my up and coming appointment with the plastic surgeon with regards to my stomach scar. Well, unfortunately, a couple of days before my appointment, the receptionist called me and cancelled it. My appointment with the vascular surgeon with regards to my fistula in early September was also cancelled on me as well. What the heck! So I’ve been rescheduled to see the surgeon for my stomach in November, and I just called my coordinator asking for the number to the vascular department so that I can make that appointment.
Now, on to my foot. I went to emerg a couple of weeks back. I saw the ER doctor who told me the exact same thing that the first ER doctor told me (because I brought the report and she just read it back to me pretty much verbatim. Ugh). Afterwards, she spoke to her colleague who told her to refer me to the fracture clinic. So, I went home.
I waited and I waited for a call from the fracture clinic-it never came.
In an unrelated manner (of course), I went to see my oncologist. She noted from reading my file that I was having issues with my foot. I told her about the fracture clinic appointment debacle. She stepped away, came back about 4 minutes later, and had an appointment for me. Huh??? How’d she do that? To be honest, by this time, my foot was already feeling better. The appointment was made for Friday morning, so when I got home, I called the fracture clinic to try and change the appointment. I was told that the fracture specialist is only in on Fridays. Also, the receptionist also told me that they NEVER call people for appointments…so I was essentially waiting for an appointment that wasn’t coming. Super.
So in the end, I didn’t go. My foot feels better and I hope it stays that way.
I think that’s it for now…! 🙂
