Is my new doctor nuts?

Thursday, July 23, 2009

I had a 10:30 AM appointment this morning & it's 3:00 PM & I'm still not finished. I went for a pain in my side from a fall. She sent me for a CT scan for kidney cancer! She said "If it is, it's no big deal. We just take the kidney out." Now I have to go back & get my results. This day has been a waste- so far. Doubt I'll get any workout done today.

    Keep us posted on the results. I have a Dr. who keeps doing things like that to me. He keeps referring me to specialist, which cost money, for things he could diagnose. I changed Dr's.

    I have to agree, I would definitely find a new doctor. I personally believe that the medical profession is run by greed just like the rest of the world so be CAREFUL and do your own homework too! Good luck keep us posted!

    Uh, yeah. I'm with Lorie. That's not only a ridiculous amount of time but any doctor would that LACK OF BEDSIDE MANNER would have me RUNNING in the other direction. RUN, RUN!!! That'll be your workout! lol

    I don't know if your new doctor is truly nuts but her attitude scares me. I never heard of a doctor saying removal of a kidney was "no big deal". I bet it would be a very big deal if it was HER kidney! Do let us know the results of your scan and good luck.
