Re: My new road: radiation?
I'm still mad at Dr. K. She never called the radiologist even after calling me to say how "concerned" she was about the time frame. He had to call her today... I want to fire her, but I've got her stupid pump in me!!
The appt. was about 2.25 hours. Nothing really got done except he told me what WILL happen. Thurs. I go for a CT scan, MRI and tatting and mapping. They will do a simulation of the radiation. Then 5 visits. Probably starting the 16th. Every other day... then 6 weeks later Dr. K wants a CT scan and to see me.
I called her office when I got home and calmed down enough to not yell at Megan. She answers the phones and sends Dr. K. emails. I told Megan to please put in the email that "I was CONCERNED and upset that Dr. K had not called Dr. Meyer to discuss my case, since she was so CONCERNED 1.5 weeks ago".
I also called Dr. Fong's office and asked that he get in touch with Dr. Meyer (the radiologist) to make sure everyone agrees on the best scenario for me. Dr. K wants him to attack the tumor too, but I thought Dr. F said that was too dangerous... Dr. M said it isn't. I just want to get started so I can finish!!!
It's so aggravating..... If I didn't have her stupid pump in me, I would fire Dr. K!!! I know, stress isn't good for me...
I also talked to Dr. M about my diet. He said cutting out the processed sugars was a good thing as long as I don't start losing too much weight. I said I've gained 5 lbs.!!! Go figure: I'm the only person I know who starts eating fruit- and vegetarian and GAINS weight!!!!!
