I'm having a lung problem and my pulmonary dr orders a CT scan 9/14 that shows 10cm mass on my kidney. So he says need to get that addressed asap. Okay, so I make appt and wait 2 weeks to see dr @ UPMC. Says he'll get back to me and another week has passed and I can't get past the secretary. Okay, so I call Cleveland and now waiting on a callback from them. In the meamtime my lung problem ( probably related to the kidney problem) has deteriorated and yesterday my pulmonary dr freaked out on me because I hadn't done anything about the kidney mass. So the question is...do I just show up at an ER and have all my records & images in hand?? Tell them I have back pain??
