so angry I could spit, and I did.

Wednesday, August 03, 2011

waited five weeks for today's neurosurgeon appointment, office called while I was at work to cancel it because he does not stay in office past two on Wednesdays,, then why did they schedule this appointment for 2:45 five weeks ago???????????
After many calls to prepare my Rx and PCP list, I find out that I do not even have an appointment with him today,,

after more calls and more waiting, I re-schedule for August 24 in the afternoon, the day after I return from my vacation.. I was told that my surgery should be scheduled about two weeks after my appointment, depending on the OR schedule,etc. They could get me in a week from today to be seen, early in the morning, which means that I would have to take a day off work for a ten minute appointment.. which is not going to happen because boss already made out schedules for next week,, THIS MORNING.
It would not make any difference if I did go next week, he still would schedule me for surgery about two weeks after I return from my vacation, so this way, I just find out the day after I com back home, after work.

I did spit, too, I was so mad,,

just got off phone with dental office,, going there tomorrow to make my smile(If I ever have one again) a little brighter.. (ting!! emoticon

    LINDA That is really too bad. I have truly been in the same boat when the receptionist wrote the date but the wring day, When i arrived a day late they even wanted to charge me for it. I went home and took the card back to them She had the audacity to say she never writes the day on the card. I did not spit i exploded.

So what to now, take your vacation and have a great time and get the surgery when you get back?
Will that work or does it mess up at work for you?.
I hope it works out for the better and you have a fabulous time at the cabin. HUGS Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    ARGH! I feel for you and understand completely...I have on occasion called to make an appt only to find they already made one for me - like they know what my calendar is like, are they kidding me!?! And they never even called to let me know what day they gave me so when I hadnt shown up they would have probably tried to charge me for the missed appt...GET REAL! As you can see I have issued too but hope we can both calm down. Hope you find your smile and have a good Dentist appt!

    WOW! That is aweful! I can't believe that! Why did he take so long to change his mind and why didn't just book the appointment for 1:45 instead of 2:45 in the first place?! I also can't believe he is ao lazy that he has to leave work at 2 EVERY day! I he must get paid vast sums of money too if he only feels the need to work a few hours a day. emoticon

    There is an unbelievable shortage of neurologists in the US right now. I would be angry, too, but in all likelihood, the doctor got called out for a emergency. When that happens, it wreaks havoc with their schedules, pisses off their patients but usually saves someone else's brain. My daddy had 3 strokes before he died and without the immediate attention of the neurologist, he would have left us sooner and been a vegetable longer. I hope everything works out for you!

    You have more than a lot on your plate and you have a right to be upset. I hope after all this that you'll at least be able to enjoy your vacation.

    Love to get plenty of rain during the summer but have to admit that morning storms leave me wishing I could stay in bed with a book. Sounds like you have been busy day and are looking forward to some time off. One more day down!

    When is your surgery? Hopefully, it's not going to put a crimp in your vacation plans.

I can't believe I never heard the storm last night because I'm normally a light sleeper.

    It jsut started here. Up to the 80's today. high 80's.

Remember the pain meds after your surgery... don't take em jsut for sleep. Only for the rough spots of pain. they all cause constipation bad.
