HE DOES NOT HAVE ONE! It was removed :) Part of me wants to call them and make sure they read the right scan even though I am sure they did ;) THe other part of me realizes that they pick up the important stuff and probably have a form they check off for whatever appears normal. Things that make me go hmmmm..........

He has some calcification around the prostate, so he is going for a cystascope on Tues.

Andrea,

Make the call. This report -with erroneous information- will become a permanent part of his medical record. Other medical providers over the years will read this report and may make decisions based upon the information it contains, even if your Dad is right there telling them that he doesn't HAVE a gallbladder. Make them correct the report.

...and while you're at it, check and see if it reports his ovaries... :roll: (I've heard of hospitals charging for hysterectomies on male patients - not sure how they did one, but in order to do that, doesn't there need to be "parts"?? Hmmmm)

From what I've heard, prostate stuff is a pain in the a-- er, butt! Hope it all comes up clear...and if not, comes up an easy fix. He doesn't need to be parkin' it on a doughnut when he's driving your mother around - rather embarASSing AND uncomfy in a waiting room, I'd think...

Sounds familiar. My dear mother-in-law had a total hysterectomy with a double oophrectomy in 1983 and on her last CT, they noted in the report that her ovaries were "present and unremarkable". Funny, but I agree with Fay, you should make them correct it.
