Pathology reports
« on: July 21, 2011, 09:22:48 AM »
I'm no so much wanting advice as I just need to share my thoughts.  I had anal surgery 2 months and the surgeon refused to explain the reports on my follow up appointment.  He thought I needed my ID doctor to review the pathology reports with me.  We had to keep demanding the damn reports and my doctor and I both rec'd copies yesterday.  I read them and completely understood them (NOT)!  I already knew the term high grade AIN applied but knew little else.  From all I studied I wasn't too concerned and knew I'd review them with my doctor at my next appointment.  First thing this morning, I receive a call from my doctor's receptionist indicating Dr. Murry wants to schedule an appointment as soon as possible.  We scheduled the appointment for next week but I'm gonna have that nagging feeling something else is wrong. 

I had this surgery previously, (many years ago) and everything about this procedure seemed different.  The immense pain, the terrible recovery, and lack of communication.  I try not to think ahead of the problem, but it's hard not to imagine an issue else we'd have waited til my next appointment.  She also informed me that she'd be scheduling an appointment with another specialist and let me know the date.  She conveniently didn't know what sort of specialist. 
Being honest is not wronging others, continuing the dishonesty is.
