Two weeks and a half weeks ago I told hubs that I was becoming pretty frustrated with my doctor. He just wasn't answering my questions and the only time he was doing anything was when I specifically suggested something. I was beginning to feel as though I was doctoring myself.
Immediately following that I had to take a trip to the ER again after I began having a lot of troubles similar to my last pulmonary embolism. They discovered that my medicine levels had dropped too low to prevent a pulmonary embolism. After a quick stay in the hospital I went home to more shots and meds which meant lots of trips to my doctor for lab and consults.
My frustration escalated and I began praying for God to give me another doctor. In the meantime, hub shared our frustration with his boss. He gave hubs the name and number of his wife's doctor.
I had one lab left with my current doctor so I was going to ask for my records to be transferred. It made me nervous, but I really want to find some answers.
The night before I was to go to the doctor my phone rang and my doctor's nurse says, "I know you have an appointment tomorrow, but I want you to know that your doctor has resigned and won't be here."
Talk about God answering prayer in a weird way!
Now I am seeing a new doctor and in one visit he has already started making arrangements for me to see a pulmonologist so I can start a plan of action for finding the source of these pulmonary embolisms and get off these meds. Yahoo!
