Alison : just as i expected
Diary entry posted Thu 12:09pm 23 December 2004

I am going to have to wait until my doctor gets back from his holiday vacation to get the results of my ct scan. Despite the fact that the report has been sitting in his office since Tuesday, his receptionist didn't let me know until today that the doctor wants to see the images himself as opposed to relying on the report (didn't tell me what the report said, of course). The radiologist said it was not their policy to send over the images and so they had not. They were willing to put them in the mail on Monday, but said they wouldn't get there until the end of the week. I told them that I would come pick them up myself, which they agreed to let me do. Now, if I had been told by the doctor earlier about wanting to see the images, I could have taken care of this before he went away for his holiday. But NO.

My paranoid mind (What else can I be at this point? I have NO INFORMATION and so I am left to invent scenarios.) says that the report told the doctor that there has been rotation but that he does not want to take their word for it because it makes him look bad and so he wants to see the images in a desparate attempt to determine otherwise.

I can not believe how patients are treated. This whole experience has been a nightmare and the nightmare just never seems to end.
