So the scan report mentioned a area of concern... with a rising CEA (46) I guess I have resolved that it is a reoccurance.
I asked for the scan report so that I could get it to our team in Madison today still. I got home, scanned the report and sent it to the surgeons assistant and waited to hear what everyone had to say. They replied alright... they informed me that this was a report from last year that was clear. THEY GAVE ME THE WRONG REPORT and I was stupid enough to not check it before I sent it. If that was the only thing that group had done today then fine but during the appt they took blood, sent him to the waiting area and someone else came to get him to take more blood! I told them that they just did and they argued with me, the PA had to walk out and tell them that they did the blood draw already. They wanted to order a PET scan and said that we should wait because they would have our appt in a moment. After 20 minutes of watching them unplug their computers, plug them back in, restart them and listening to them attempt to schedule the PET scan I needed to get out of there. I asked them to give us the food instructions and call us with the appt. time; discovering I had wasted the time of some very busy people in Madison just about sent me over. It was after office hours but I did reach their after hours people and had them leave a message that I expected Madison to have the images and report tomorrow by the end of the day. I know what you are thinking - don't waste time on being ticked off, I have settled down now. So, the word for word from the report that I posted earlier was from last year, not the most recent scan. UGH I will go back and see if I can edit it. Madison doesn't want him to have a PET scan here, they want us to come and let them take care of everything there. I have to say that I would prefer that and am much more comfortable now that I have been in contact with them.
Sorry for babbling... I was just a stewing with all of this so maybe getting it out will help me sleep.
I wish miracles for us all.
