So, just a quick vent. Had pre-op meeting with the internal med doctor on 10/30 (surgery was supposed to be 11/12). Of course my blood pressure was up fairly high so she immediately canceled my surgery that was 2 weeks away and didn't even give me a chance to get it down over the next 2 weeks. Went to my family physician of 30 years and he put a plan together to get my blood pressure down and within 4 days, lo and behold, back to normal again. Reported back to pre-op doctor, denied again and told to monitor for another week and she will re-evaluate (of course after my original surgery date). And as luck would have it, no available surgery dates in December or January! So, I get to keep the pain for a couple of more months -- yay!! (sarcasm) Thanks for allowing me to vent!
