Hi ladies! After much contemplation and discussions with my husband, I decided to call my doctor back and ask him to send my chart to another local (West Lafayette, IN) doctor for a second opinion. He apparently reviewed my chart again before sending and decided to call me back (Monday 6/11/13) and ask me if I would be ok with him referring me to the IU Simon Cancer Center in Indianapolis, immediately. He apologized for his hastness in his conclusion that further care was not needed and after further review, he feels like I should be seen by experts in the field instead of another local doctor. Of course, I was relieved to know that it was being taken seriously, but also terrified that he wanted me to see an oncologist and breast surgeon "immediately". I thought, "ok, they'll probably try to squeeze me in around thmiddle of July." Nope! I got a call today (Tue 6/12) telling me they received the mammogram and ultrasound results aaha want me to come to the IU Simon Cancer Care Center on Thursday (6/14).
While part of me is relieved to know that this is being taken seriously, the other part of me is terrified because now it feels "real". i know you ladies/gents can't tell me exactly what will take place in Thursday, but I'm hoping you can give me a little bit of insight as to what to expect, what will they be doing, and what questions I need to prepare so I can get the most out of this appointment. what do I need to make sure I ask?
Thanks in advance!
