i went and saw my reg doc today
and he was going to get in contact
with the surgeon
tomorrow
well actually they called me
finally i got a dang appt
to see the surgeon

and then i found out the hernia
i suposely have is not actually the problem
i have approx 3liters of water in my stomach
so that explains as why im so blooded
thought it was  part of the liver
which can still be
so they need to drain that

Yuck!  I hate you are going through this!!  What is the surgery for?  I know you have probably posted about it, but between all my patients, everyone on here and my family, I can't keep up with who is getting what done!   I hope the doctor can drain that fluid and get you feeling better!

You would be amazed at how quickly an appointment will open up if your MD calls in a favor.

I was told 8 weeks to be evaluated for a hip job.   My guardian angel MD (different specialty, not my neph)  asked me "would you like it sooner" and about an hour later I got a call from the ortho doc's office that had nothing for 2 months "what time tomorrow works for you?".
