Had my weight check this morning. Rad oncologist said last visit "I want to see you maintain or go up a couple of lbs by next visit and we'll talk about getting that tube out." I had gained 5 lbs but then was struck this week with the stomach bug :(
I told the nurse (not my usual nurse) about the virus I had, and she said they had ALL had it and it was going around terribly. Whew..good, she understood. Well, I weighed EXACTLY the same as I did at my last appointment and she was so glad I had been able to maintain. She also was happy to hear how well I was eating. She said the doctor was going to be very happy! She goes back to speak to him and tell him all of this and he replies "Well, she can come back in 2 weeks and I'll see how things are going then."
That's it. He didn't see me, speak to me, or leave his desk. All of the staff there commented on how great I was looking and all asked if I got the tube out today...I have to admit I'm a little bummed. Hindsight is 20/20 and I should have said "Let me see the other oncologist. HE is the one who put the order in for me to GET the tube in the first place."
*sigh* Peggy will be with me at least another 2 weeks. I go next Friday to see my surgeon for a follow up.
