Elaine Posted June 23, 2005 Share Posted June 23, 2005 Well, I guess my numbness has worn off, which probably isn't a good thing, since it has been replaced with anxiety. I am feelng tremendously deficient as a person, right now. Here I am almost 50 and I can't seem to handle the stress of this like so many of you seem to. I had a CT scan last Tues, and I have been somewhat anxious about it. It was done to monitor lymph nodes. These nodes should have been monitored months ago, which is why I changed pulmos. I had a appointment with my counselor today, so I thought I would call to get my results before my appointment with her, so I would have some kind of support if I needed it. I called my PCP's office (she is still on maternity leave) and they said they could not give me the results, only the Dr who ordered the tests. So I called that office. The nurse said that she would not discuss the results with me, and said the Dr will go over them with you next Tues at your appointment. I was both angry and scared, like the kind of scared when your legs go weak and the hair on your arms stands up. I want to be "prepared" before this visit. I don't want to walk in not knowing what I will be facing and without having done some legwork. It is the way I NEED to do things. I was just stunned at her answer. Once again, I felt slapped around. I know many of you do not get your results until your appointments, but I just don't think I can do it. Especially, seeing the Dr is pretty much a sarcastic *ss, as I have written about previously. Any suggestions?? What would you do? My husband feels I am over-reacting. Also, I thought we weren't going, but now it looks like we are going to a family reunion (not my family) and have to leave tomorrow. elaine Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
