Its been a long week. I had horrible back pain. The kind that is a 15 on a scale of one to ten.
The pain didn’t go way and got worse. So Dave and I spent Sunday in the emergency room.
I had blood drawn, another ct without contrast and a VQ scan. My last ct with contrast was this past March 13.
The ct was fine stated my colon cancer had not returned. The word report needs redone. My AVM has gotten so big it was called something I was not born with.
But that’s another story.
I ended up spending Sunday in the hospital and was discharged early Monday evening.
The discharging doctor stressed I see the spinal surgeon for pain management and my pain is in a different place than the old break from the ct scan.
As far as I know I only broke my back is a car accident when I was 16. Currently I am over 50.
This doctor said he had everything set up for my appointment this week.
Well I got an appointment for tomorrow right down the street from where I live.
But they need a copy of the ct from the 13th. Yesterday I called attempting to get my ct on a disk for the appointment tomorrow.
I was told I had to go downtown Cleveland to pick it up if it was ready and there was a charge.
This morning Dave had blood drawn and we talked to a really nice lady in the records room. She could have made my copy in 45 minutes.
We will be back tomorrow to pick it up.
Now I remember another PTEN contact blogging she gets what she needs to get done for copies of scans before leaving.
I will know better next time.
