The surgeons office called me yesterday to say the Doctor Is "no longer available
for surgery". Gee, this wouldn't have anything to do with the long weekend would
it? So After.............
- Waiting since February
- Taking time off work in June/July for a surgery that never happened
- Finding out I'm having surgery 1 week before the date
- Rearranging my schedule and my clients schedules for the week following the
- Missing work for my Pre-Op blood work and paperwork
- Finally overcoming my fear of surgery and getting excited to move forward
in my plans
............My surgery was cancelled, last minute, just like that! and for what? more
then likely so the Doctor can have a longer long weekend. Oh lord, I give up!
In the words of Adam Lambert "What do you want from me?"
The surgeons office moved the surgery for 2 weeks from now, 2 days before
some very important classes. I asked her if there is another day I could do because
it is extremely hard for me to change my schedule and she simply replied
"If you can't do that day it goes to someone else and you go back on the waiting
list". She was so very curt with me, and I can say that I would have expected a
little more sympathy when completely screwing up someone's plans.
So, here I am with another big decision. Part of me wants to drop this surgeon and
the other clinic that referred me to her and start all over again with Dr. Love. BUT
this option puts me back at the beginning, right back to square one. On the other
hand though I don't want to reward anyone for bad behavior. I will eventually move
forward with everything and put a whole lot of money towards it, I want the recipient
of these profits to be someone who actually cares (or at least seems to care) about
me and my partner.
Just contacted Dr. Love's office, and although the secretary was extremely kind, she
informed me that he is booked solid until the new year. She will not know until
at least December when the new Operating Room schedule will be. It looks like if
I choose to change to him for the surgery that I will not get in until, at earliest,
FEBRUARY. I don't know If I can wait that long. I know that I have dealt with this
pain my whole life, but the pain paired with disappointment every month is
really getting to me. I really want to move forward. What do I do?
