I need your help. It involves my medical records. I'm seeing a new Reproductive Endocrinologist a week from today, on the 25th and they needed my records 2 weeks prior to my appt. I sent all the paperwork to my current doctors offices 3 weeks ago requesting my records be transferred to the new doctor.
The new doctor needs a copy of my HSG films. Hysterosalpingogram - to see if my tubes were blocked. Apparently the written reports won't do, they want to see the pictures/films themselves. Which is fine with me, 2 sets of eyes are better than 1.
Well, I've had 2 HSG's done in the last 2 years and apparently the second one I had done during my surgery and they didn't record them on film, which I find completely insane and the first doctor, my GYN, well her nurse is quite the bitch and I called last Thursday, the 13th, to see if they sent them and they hadn't and she said she'd get them to the new doctor. I called today and they still haven't gotten them and then I called my GYN's office and the stupid nurse tells me that they are waiting for the doctor to come to that office (she goes to 5 different offices every week) so the nurse can ask the doctor if it's okay to send the pictures to the new doctor!!!!
Aren't they MY PICTURES???? All they are doing is sitting in a file in a drawer doing nothing. My new doctor needed them a week ago and I have to wait until thursday and then what?? How long will it take for me to get them?? My appt is Tuesday!!
I'm very upset right now because they are making me more stressed than I need right now. This appt is extremely important to me and my husband and I need some help. Why do they have to make this so difficult??
Any advice?? I need some help desperately.
If I sound psychotic please forgive me, but we've been dealing with the fact that I may never have children so if anyone can sympathize, without telling me to relax, because there is no point in that, I would really appreciate it.
