I had a phone call this afternoon as I am running out the door to go to dialysis.  It is my nephrologist.  Says to me: Have you had the results of the CT-scans?    I said: No, not yet.  HE says:  Wait a minute. I have to go over these with the radiologist.  I will call you back tomorrow!
WTF!!! Why bother calling me if you can't tell me the results? Holy sh**!  Just leave me hangng for a day or so.  I hate it when they do this to me! He says he will call tomorrow after two oclock.  We shall see, but this doctor is pretty good about calling back.  Why do they have to torture me so??  So now I get to worry for 24 hours or more.  *SIGH!* :banghead; :banghead;

When the Fuc*** calls tomorrow just say "would you mind holding for a moment?" and just put him on hold and leave.  Then just blame it on your memory!  That is horrible to do to someone!  I'm sorry Kit!

I'm sorry, Kitkatz.  That just sucks.  I hate the waiting myself, I feel like I have just about everything I can handle already and then you have to wait for something like this.  I hope everything is okay and I'll be praying for you!

Kit--
Call him and have him paged. Tell him he scared the crap out of you.
I would call now, before it gets too late. I would say I waited by the
phone all afternoon. It's so RUDE to leave you hanging!!!

Kit...if you have registered with Kaiser's website most test results are available online shortly after the samples are drawn.  Some take longer than others to come back but as they come in they are posted to the site.  You can also set the system up to send you email alerts as results come in.  It is a real blessing to be able to know what is happening without seeing the doctor or calling in. http://members.kaiserpermanente.org/kpweb/selectregion.do?gt=/kpweb/membershome/entrypage.do

I hope your cat scan turns out OK I had mine and when I called to check they said they wouldn't be putting me on the list just yet because the surgeon wants to discuss the results with me. The nurse said that it showed some sort of calcium build up and the Docter wants to feel around. So know I get to wait till the 13th of Feb to discuss it :banghead; :banghead; :wine; :wine;  Boxman55

Okay, so today I get a message on the phone in my classroom from my nephrologist. "Come by my office you do not need to check in, I need to talk to you."  So I call the dialysis center to let them know why I am going to be late this afternoon. The doc wants to see me.  So I head out to Kaiser a two oclock today and get to his office.  I am taken by the doctor into his office and he closes the door.  "Uh oh."  I think.  He then tells me he wants me to know they found a tissue mass between my sacrum and the rectum.  He wants to send me to a surgeon to get it biopsied or looked at.  I hate all of this crap! Then I spoke the the transplant coordinator and she says the urology consult will be done and this has to be checked out before they send me back to Loma Linda  She sent the paperwork to the urologist.  Maybe this is why they could not catheterize me for one of the xray tests I had done.   :banghead; :banghead; :banghead;

You have a urostomy why would they catheterize you anyway? 

Don't worry until you have to.  Just go get this test out of the way.

They were trying to see if I had any bladder left to use again.  It has been fun and frustrating! (Sarcasm goes here!) Holy Hell!  I am going to rant and rave and swear up a storm over the next few weeks.  Bear with me!

Sluff, you made me laugh! Thanks! :rofl; :banghead;
