Oh gosh, what an experience. Unfortunately my appointment with the Neurologist was a bust. What a jerk. When I told him I was recovering from Anal Cancer he said: "ANAL CANCER!" I suddenly felt very small and unfortunately ashamed! It was not the worst of it. He grilled me about my daughter's death too. Making matters worse, it's close to her birthday and I am always more sensitive this time of year. I didn't cry in his office like I usually do on first visits to a doctor when the subject comes up but the tears keep coming back when I think of it. I have a call into the referring physician. I am scheduled for Neurological tests with his office, but I will call and cancel. We need health care professionals who are compassionate. Leaving Sloan Kettering I am back in the "real world" of medical "care" I guess now. Not pretty.
