Waiting On Radiology
Finally I got through to my Gastroenterologist about the ultrasound that they put in for on the 25th of April. I still haven't heard from radiology on that one. I called radiology before I called my gastroenterologist this morning. Of course radiology never answers their phone. Its not only me as the nurse at gastroenterology also tried and they didn't answer for her either.
Looks like I'm going to get referred out to TRA imaging in Tacoma again. I went there once for an ultrasound on my thyroid. I didn't like the experience there or the technician who seem incompetent. The reason why I can't be seen at Madigan for the ultrasound is that they don't have enough film readers right now to cover the appointments. I guess that some are deployed?
The only way I'm going to get in for an ultrasound at Madigan is if I go through the ER as an emergency. If the pain gets worse, of which it started up again over the weekend with intense pain, I'll be doing the ER route. I'm not going to hold off on this if I'm in acute pain. I'm tired of being in pain from so very many things in my life. If I can get proper treatment for the various issues I'll do it and stop complaining so much.
So here I sit waiting for radiology at Madigan to give me a call back. I need a code from them for denial of treatment at their facility before I can be seen at another imaging place.
On a lighter note; I've won three books on Good Reads this week. Awesome!
