Okay, so since my husband doesn't understand, I needed somewhere to put this. I'm scared. Terrified, actually. I've taken the steps required of me to start the process for surgery. I even talked one-on-one with what seemed like the nicest secretary of one of the doctors and she offered to help me try to fast-track everything. I got back with her the information she requested....I had to leave it all via message because she NEVER answers the phone at work. And she left me a message asking me to call her...and I did and she didn't answer again. And then she left another message telling me she WOULD be in the office the next day and to call her then...and I did. Several times. And left messages. And she hasn't called back. And that was in November. I even left one message asking the few questions that I need answered hoping if she called back and I wasn't able to answer, she could leave the answers on my voicemail. Work with the phone tag thing and all, right? That was November.
I have called her line and the main office line. I have left many messages. NO ONE is calling me back. What the hell? I don't get it. They don't answer. They don't call back.
These are the people that I'm going to risk my life with...and they can't even answer the phone or return a call in MONTHS. It's terrifying. What if they get some bloodwork back that shows an abnormality and my life could be saved if they just alert me and get me to the hospital...and they don't call? What is going on?
I'm going to try to call the rest of the week. I haven't missed a single call since the time the one girl said she would be in the office and I should call her and I did and never talked to her. I even told them on my messages that I had been trying to call for months, hoping that would bump me to the top of their call back list...and they still haven't called. I could say it's infuriating (and it is), but more than that, it's terrifying! I don't know what to do and, unfortunately, I don't have any other options.
Maybe I'm not allowed to have surgery...again...ever...
Maybe I should just give up.
*For the record - there are no other options. This is the best there is.*
