Topic: Crazy Good 1st Meet up with new GP
Tuesday I went to my new GP and he spent an hour just talking with me! Honest, he was doing most of the talking. The following is the short and sweet of it.
Why do I go an Endocrinologist? I was sent to him after I developed a nodule on my Thyroid which has not changed in 3 years so I go every 3 months for that and Diabetes. He says Diabetes is his forte and he can get me my scans for the Thyroid. Scratch the Endo
Why do I go to cardio 2 X a year? Because of the stress I was in. He says I can watch that too. Scratch the Cardio!
Why do I go to the ONC who has let me slip through the cracks? He can order the MRI when the ONC Surgeon wants them. Scratch the ONC
Bingo, bango I now have just the GI and the GP. He also said that aside from the Colitis I am in great shape for my age, physically and mentally.
Do you know how many appointments this knocks out? I have to now find things to do! On the way home I felt this huge weight lift right up. I even joined a group of old friends for dinner last night where we lived before as it was someone's Birthday and decided to go back to choir in September to sing for the High Holidays. Since my bad moments are in the morning now and not all day I can do the choir. Last night I went to sleep repeating, "life is for the living".
