Some decisions made

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

Bob decided to accept his surgeon's decision to have follow up. Can you believe no doctor ordered thyroid blood tests? Yet Bob had a CT scan, an ultrasound, and a biopsy! He will have the thyroid blood test soon.

He will repeat the ultrasound in 6 months and see his surgeon. If his growth is more complex he will have surgery.

We also talked about going to emergency in the future. We will call our doctors' offices or the dialysis center. We don't need more tests.

I see where Bob is coming from. We need care for his comfort and well-being. We do not need to have superman efforts. His body is not robust.

This is a learning experience for me.

    Sounds like you've made some good decisions. It doesn't surprise me at all that they didn't do those tests. I had a high thyroid test and they didn't think it was important but they did an ultrasound and found some cysts. I had forgotten that until I read this. Maybe we should be following up on that!
