Moving Along

I met with my local RE today to go over the cyst draining procedures. It seemed pretty simple. He also said he likes to go in and poke a few holes in the lining where cysts are created to prevent more from coming in. I was thrilled about that. So basically today we talked. It was nice, basically I have learned that you just sometimes have to talk to the doctor. They know exactly what to say to make me feel better. Again, I had problems with the receptionist. I did try to say something to the Dr. about her. He asked me why I did get the cyst drained sooner and I told him every time I call to schedule something it's either not available or it's a big struggle just to find me time to come in. He told me he would do whatever dates CCRM needed. That made me feel better. So the next time I called to schedule I will tell her that. Today she made me pay for my surgery that is next week. I asked why and she said that's the way we do things around here. Really? I said well when I was scheduled to get the cyst drained on July 5th I didn't pay in advance. Dr. Z (local ER) said he thinks the cyst will be gone when we do an u/s on Tuesday...I think so too. I told her this and she still made me pay. Whatever I guess I will get the money back somehow if the surgery is cancelled. So for the rest of the week I will try to eat pretty healthy, lots of raw veggies and lots of water. My husband is reading this book about water so he is constantly telling me to drink more water. It's the body's miracle drug.


  1. I'm sooo glad the meeting with your local RE went well! That receptionist sounds like a piece of work though- gaaawwwd - why do they have to be so difficult - don't they know our lives are hard enough already!

  2. That is so great that the RE is helping you out. I've heard so many good things about drinking water too and still can't make myself drink more. I even have a hard time taking the pre-natals!! So bad. Thanks for the reminder. I will try to be better.

  3. Glad you got everything going. Hopefully you can bypass the secretary from now on.
