Ok Betsy it is time for you to get a doctor who answer your calls, who schedules surgery without letting the patient know about
the bloodwork, ekg. etc. that goes on prior to surgery.
I am not sure where you live and dont want to be nosy, but girl you need to go superwoman on your doctors.
If your doctor works in the hospital where your surgery is being done then he seriously needs an update on procedure. Please if possible find someone to help you, I will not go in deep explanation of the series of bozo doctors I have had (ok I have no idea why its now printing slanted letters now) but there were many prior to the doctor I have now.
I swear I really have to stop pressing buttons, i never know what going to happen.
Good luck, and please take care of yourself, and part of that is insisting you get the care you deserve.
