I am so upset and angry right now I just want to break things. I just came from the clinic where I was supposed to have a ct scan on my kidneys this morning. I did all my prep last night, made sure everything was ready so I could get out quick this morning, got up early and started drinking because they said I had to have a full bladder for this test. I'm sitting in the little room and the tech is getting ready to start the iv and somebody says "stop, we can't do the injectable dye, we don't want to risk it, it has to be an mr scan now". Then they want me to call my pcp to get a request for the test, ok? Hell no. It will take at least 2 weeks to put a request through my ins and get approval back. Asked if they could call the kidney dr, because she is the one who requested the ct scan. I called yesterday and specifically asked if this dye test was safe for me because of decreased function and asked about a pill that I read they could give me to prevent any further damage. Someone there looked at my test results and told me I would be fine, my kidneys would be able to handle it. and then to top it off they try to make it sound as if they're doing me a favor to "fit me in" on Thursday at 5:00 PM. Thanks for the favor. Now another three day wait and a drive in prime time traffic to make the appt and it will be Friday before I here anything. This is not right! Plus now I have to cancel an appt with my surgeon to scedule my takedown, an appt that I have had for 2 months.
