Doctor Appointment

September 11, 2017 11:48am CST
I called as soon as I got up from my morning nap. I was in the pool first thing this morning, and people asked if I should even be swimming when I told them what happened on Friday and why I was AWOL from the pool Friday morning. So I called the doctor's office and have an appointment for right away today, in just under two hours, so I'll be leaving here in 45 minutes to see him and find out what can be done about this blood clot. I really don't want to have to worry about my demise in a very short time if that thing should happen to start traveling to my lungs and heart. I'll let you know what the outcome of that appointment is. I really hope he will really look at this situation and not just gloss it over as he has in the past about different things. My appointment is for 1 CST. Thanks for reading. I hope your day is going well.

If my doc glossed over things I would find a new doc. Good luck.

I have the medication, but I only had a partial order from Saturday because the pharmacy didn't have enough, and said the rest would be in today. I got a call telling me now there are insurance issues.

@KristenH Me too. I only have 2.5 days left of the partial they gave me on Saturday because they didn't have the full order for me. They got it in today, called me that it was ready for pickup, and then called me back telling me there was a delay in the insurance.

Prayers for a good outcome. Too many doctors do gloss over serious medical problems when they should be looked at and monitored closely.

It's been in mine too. I did post the update. Now all I need is for the insurance - Medicaid - to approve the medication. It's on hold at the pharmacy for now until it's approved. They gave me a partial on it Saturday because it was all they had. They said they would call as soon as they get the approval and I can go pick it up. I have enough right now for 2.5 days. Sometimes I hate the government.

@DianneN I had to wait four months for Medicaid to approve my dentures. They better not wait on this one.

Thank you. Now I just need the insurance to okay the Xylotol. I got a phone call from the pharmacy that it's delayed. I only have the partial I picked up on Saturday, and that's not going to last very long. 2.5 days.

@just4him ........Hope it works out for you. I had to pay for the one I was prescribed for when I need it type of anxiety med. Only $16.14 though so not so bad.

@just4him Sounds good. Just got in a bit ago and trying to dig through all the notifications. If I am not too tired, which I am right now I will go and read it. We spent the day at the garden and I didn't get home until after 6 this evening. My friends came and we cleaned and had a BBQ up there. We stayed up there because we wanted to go swimming in the river.

@poehere Sounds like you had a great day. I'm sure it felt good to swim in the river after a day working in the garden. The BBQ sounds great as well.

It did, thank you. The only thing I didn't do was go to the pool. I had muscle cramps again through the night, but not painful, which was good.

I'm sorry about the blood clot. They can be dangerous. Blood thinners will help but I wonder if it can be taken out.

I talked to the doctor about that and he said it wasn't an option at this time.
