I have posted here and there about the frustrations I have with getting copies of my colonoscopy & pathology reports. I have never managed to get both of them, and it is like pulling teeth to get even one. My GI makes me get them from my GP. My GP's office always claims they didn't receive it and they have to ask for it again. GI's office always claims they sent it promptly. (I find my GP's office more disorganized so I vote for the fault lying with them fwiw).
I have a colonoscopy every two years. Have for a long time. My last one was in 2018. This year's was delayed from June to August due to COVID. Anyway, I spoke to my GP yesterday about something else and also asked for my reports. She couldn't find them, as per usual. Oh, one new development is they will now email them to me!! Well, in theory. So, sure enough, I got an email late yesterday. The pathology report was there, and a report from my GI... from the appointment I had with her in July 2019. Not a scope report. Sigh. There were a few typos in the report, including where she says my next scope is due 2029 (instead of 2020).
I emailed back. The response I just got says "The report from July 2019 says you are not due for a colonoscopy until 2029. If you did have one done this year, who performed it and at what hospital?"
Excuse me. "IF" I had one done??? Could I possibly be mistaken? Oh, I thought I had one done, but you're right, I dreamed up the whole thing. I am irritated. And foolishly, I replied very snippily so now I'm sure I'll never get the report.
