I need to vent. I could post this on the GERD forum, but they never reply to anything. So here goes.
Yesterday I had an endoscopy and the dr was the worst. She came in, introduced herself, and proceeded to ream me out because I was supposed to return back in 06 to have a colonoscopy and I didn't. First of all, that had nothing to do with my endoscopy. She is giving me my sedative while telling me I had had a pre-cancerous polyp removed, and I needed further follow-up. She didn't listen to a thing I said.
Then when she came in after the test, she completely ignored my husband and was talking to me. I don't even remember being brought back to the room, much less anything she said. My husband was gong to shake her hand and she went right past him.
The thing is, I think she was on a mission with the colonoscopy, and didn't give attention to what she did find, which was Barretts esophagus, which is serious to me. I am still so enraged I can't believe it. Under the Impression part of the preliminary report, she again talks about the colonoscopy I didn't have. I am scared and stinking mad at the same time.
I have a call into my dr. and boy I'm afraid he is going to hear it from me. So I am wondering. Was she out of line, or am I making a big deal out of nothing.
