I'm really not one to over-react to things, but since diagnosed with PCa I'm a little sensitive about
medical communication errors. I received a telephone call from my Radiology Oncologist this morning. He said that he spoke to my cardiologist and that I could stop my plavix. I asked him to repeat his name, and then asked for clarification of the patient he was talking about
. It was in fact my Radiology Oncologist, and the patient he identified was me.
Problem is, I don't have a cardiologist and have never been on Plavix or any other heart medication for that matter.
When I told him, there was silence for a few moments, he couldn't explain the miscommunication, apologized and said that I would get a call telling me when to come in for the marker placement. I am feeling a little uncomfortable with this group now (major cancer center) and am second guessing my choice. Also, they use IMRT equipment manufactured by Siemens, does anyone know if there is anything significantly different about Siemens and Variant's Triology system?
