Went to the Dr. today. Told her I was still having chest pains on the right side that sometimes traveled down to the elbow. Also told her I had been told this was a side effect from them taking the mammary vein from the right side.
She says "right side eh? Well that's funny cause they took the vein from the left side."
So, now she wants me to get into the Cardiologist ASAP to find out why the right side is hurting.
That should take a good month or so to get done...

Then she goes thru the medications on my list, and says "this is confusing, where is the Lopressor?" The state refused it. Now I know why my heart rate shoots up when I try to go to PT. So we end with her wanting to see me in three months. Three months? Wow I must be in good shape if we can go that long before seeing her again! So now I am feeling pretty good, only the receptionist tells me they don't fill out the schedule that far in advance, call back in two months...

Whatever...

Wow, Maverick, I can't believe that it takes that long to see a doctor where you live.......my doctor's office was refusing to schedule an apptmt. for my husband for a colonoscopy until the Dr. saw him.....I pleaded and said that he was only in town for 10 days and he was 53 years old and would have the test no matter what so please put him down in the surgery schedule as I wanted to be sure that he had it.........the hoops that I had to go thru........but she reluctantly agreed.....he saw the Dr. and sure enough the exam room was totally packed that morning....the nurses were running like crazy and to this day I could repeat for you word for word the spiel the nurses gave the patients........as it turned out my husband had a precancerous lesion that was removed during the colonoscopy.....surprised the heck out of him

Maverick, sometimes heart surgery has the side effects of "healing pains".......this might be what your problem is or there is inflammation along the right rib cage........glad that you have a proactive Dr.........of course you should have it checked out and you've also been under a lot of stress recently, too.......please try and take it easy and if you can apply warm compresses to the area and see if that helps---I always use the microwaveable wraps..........so are you able to get the lopressor? Please take care and hope that you get to see a cardiologist soon

Ut-oh thats not good. I take it you were a co-signer on it, which is what has you worried? Had this happen to my SIL when she lost her job, her mom had co-signed the loan. The harassed the heck out of them until one day they sent a certified letter that they had filed suit asking for a lien against the MILs house.
Turns out if they win and get the lien, they can force a sale of the house to re-coup their money. MIL ended up taking out a loan on the house to pay the lien and keep her house.
Nasty business, I am so sorry you are going thru this.

Nope, no Lopressor.
And we got a letter today from Illinois Medicaid/Harmony HMO saying they will not cover my appendix operation because they were not faxed the info on what it was. Um, if you weren't faxed any info, how do you know what it was? DW yelled at em this morning for a couple of hours, and supposedly they are going to contact my doctor and 'work it out'. They literally referenced exactly what I was in the hospital for, but then claimed that they didn't know what I was in the hospital for and that is why they refused payment.... neat trick.
As for the Cardiologist, that takes a referral to go see him, and my doctor didn't write one out for me.. so I don't think that will be happening anytime soon either.

People who have absolutely no respect for others time. Grrrrr....so pissed right now. This flakey girl who is buying our TV was supposed to be here at 5pm. Sent me a text to ask if she could come "a bit" later, I said sure. Then calls me at 7:15pm to say she is home and needs to eat then will drive over. It's now 8:45pm I get another text saying shes picking up a friend at the train station at 9:15pm then coming over! I can't believe the freakin nerve of some people.........
