I share in case someone can relate. This is not medical advice. No duh as the kids say. The following is my opinion. Names will be changed to protect the guilty. This may be real or fantasy. With me ya never know.
Continuing on. My GYN was none the wiser about my PCP also getting the results. Shortly after the dexa / mammo combo, I got a call from my favorite NP at the GYN. She told me the results of the dexa require further review by a Rheumatologist. She goes on to say that I have been referred to (nameless doc) and that his office will be contacting me for an appointment. That if I do not get a call in 2 days, to call them.
Well alrighty then. Will do! Especially since I had misgivings about the Fosamax (generic). Then sure as shootin, I get a call. Now mind you peeps this is January. The earliest appointment is April 25th. Good thing I am not in desparate need of help because that is a really long time to wait. But all I have is too much time on my hands (Styx). I decide I’ll play and made the appointment.
Quite frankly I forgot I had scheduled anything. Then I’d remember and then I’d forget again. And I obsessed about having brittle bones. I was waiting for my hip to break. Seriously.
Thankfully, April 25th rolled around ever so slowly. Then I almost didnt go. I checked online for reviews and the practice was a mixed bag. Not the worst but certainly not the best. Things like what I wrote about here.
Worse things about seeing the doctor at the first visit only to be passed off to staff who according to one reviewer were a bunch of under-educated highschoolers. I figured I had nothing to lose. If this was a trainwreck, I still had my followup with my PCP in July.
I am exhausted. Are you? Yes? Ok, then that is all for today.
As always, more to come.
