Sassy, can I relate . I went to my rheumy to what I thought was a follow-up and left having to have monthly blood tests, an MRI, x-rays, 3 new meds and a partridge in a pair tree . Sorry couldn't resist. I have my "well woman" exam next week which is more blood, a pelvic, a bone density and anything else she comes up with. I see my pain doc tomorrow and my onchologist Friday.
I get so sick of this. In fact I got so sick of it last year I "post-poned" most of my appointments. I just couldn't take it anymore. Of course I got totally yelled at, but sometimes when your whole life revolves around doctor appointments, procedures, tests, meds and I was in the hospital 7 times last year, you have too say enough! Or at least I did.
