I am in so much pain right now I am wrighting to try and get my mind off of it. This low pelvic pain began last week when I thought I had a UTI. It has progressivly been getting worse and I was just about to the ER point when yesterday it resolved suddenly. I had been popping vicodin like they were tic tacs but yesterday I needed no pain medication at all. Now at 6am today it is back with a vengence. I took two vicodin and I can actually stand up now but the pain is still there. I have an 11am appointment with the oncologist but I have a bad feeling he is just going to send me over to the ER.
On a second note, I spent all weekend fine tuning a letter to the hopital administration and the oncology group about my horrible appt with the clinic on friday. I carefully went through every screw up thats happened over the past 15 months. I tried to be really diplomatic and highlighted good experiences as well as bad. I showed up at the office yesterday to go over all of it with the manager. I managed to stay calm as I explained the situation to her. I did break out into tears when I stated that I sat there quietly, putting up with that jerks poor treatment of me, only because I was desperatly clinging to the hope he may have an option for me. As a matter of fact, when I look over the mishaps of the last 15 months I can hardly believe the crap I have taken. Of course she was appauled. I explained my only goal was to remidy this situation. I don't really want to have to find another oncologist. I will be seeking other opinions but in the meantime I do not want any delay in treatment. I even told her if she could remidy the situation I most likely would never even mail the letter to the CEO and Director of Nursing at the hospital. I also made sure to tell her not to mistake my calmness for not being mad. I am very angry. But I figured if I went in there screaming and yelling I would get noware. Now today I get to see the Doctor after I am sure he has by now read over my 4 page rant. This should be interesting.
