I had my nephrectomay abou 21 months ago. Yesterday I got a call from the urologist's office (who did the surgery), that he wanted to see me to go over my Path report. Huh? We did that 8 days after surgery. Granted, I have not been to him in a year because I am being followed by a excellent medical oncologist. The receptionist did check with the Doctor, and corrected about path report, but the Dr still wants to see me. I have various reasons to not wanting to go...
I fel that when I was having problems (e.g. fever and puss at four weeks), I was not taken seriously until the whole surface wound opened (peritum remain closed, thankfully.) Also, he shares space with a Primary Care physician that I fired a year ago after he sent me home with crushing chest pains with antacid -- when the problem was caused by a 99% blockage of the left anterior descending artery. I was lucky in that, when the pain continued, I went to the cardiologist.
Is there any reason to go other than to help the Urologist buy a new sports car?
In the unlikely event that my cancer shows up in the remaining kidney, I will not go to him anyway. I will go to John's Hopkins (where my new oncologist is). I have no other urological issues.
I mean, today I am seeing: Internest, Medical Oncologist, Pulminologist, Cardiologist, and Nephrologist.
