OMG I'm so frustrated right now

Oct 03, 2014 - 12 comments

So I've called my O.B. a couple times to get the results of all my blood work. (Checking liver function and checking for diabetes). I was told that she hadn't looked at them yet, but I was told that she was going on holidays and needed to have everything cleaned up today and to call back. So I called at 2 pm est and the receptionist put me on hold for a moment. She came back on the phone and asked if I was at home. I said yes, and she said she'd call back soon. Well it's now after 4 pm est and I still haven't heard back. I called again (yep I'm a pain in the @ss). And now there's no answer so I suspect that they've already left.

Really?!?! You've already made me wait a week and a half and now I have to wait till at least Monday at the earliest, and possibly another week when she comes back from holidays!

It's one thing to say call back, call back. But it's another to not follow through on it. Now I'm getting all freaked out that something's wrong and maybe she has to consult with another Dr. Diabetes runs pretty high in my family. My grandma had it, my mom has it and my uncle has it. And that's just who I know of. There could be others.

And I was born with jaundice so I don't know what effects that would have (if any) on my liver later in life. I've tried Googling it, but I haven't found any answers.

Okay, deep breaths....deep breaths....

That is upsetting. She may be going to make her call backs once she gets them sorted out after patients leave.  I know it's common for babies born early have jaundice. We were not told Mel would have any lasting effects from it. We were just told to watch her closely when she came home so she could be treated. I hope your doctor gets back to you. I know some offices say no news is good news but that's not always true. I hope you get some answers today!!

UPDATE:

She finally called me back at 5:15. She said everything came back normal. No diabetes, no signs of liver issues. That was a HUGE relief for me. I'm so scared to get diabetes. I know millions of people have it and continue to live a "normal" life. But it scares the crap out of me

E - I was born full term +. I was born 2 weeks late.

No that's not always true. Some Dr's are just rude, or take forever to go through results.

I'm sorry, I wasn't implying you were premature. I guess that wasn't worded quite right. Glad you got good results

Lol G. Well as "normal" as I'm gonna be. Besides, normal is overrated. Haha. Love ya too.

Vic - Thanks. I will. And you too.

E - No worries. I've heard it's more common in premature babies. I guess I'm the exception to the rule.

All you ladies are awesome. Thank you.

I've come to the realization that I have a lot to be thankful for. I'm relatively healthy. A couple things going on that I've never shared with anyone here. I have 2 beautiful, healthy kids. (Even though sometimes they drive me to drink). I have a husband that loves me.

I was reading someone's journal yesterday (I won't name any names) who's in so much pain it's unbelievable. I really have nothing to complain about.

So I'm going to count all my blessings

No worries K. I miss updates sometimes too.

Yeah usually it means no news is good news, but she hadn't even looked at the results. So she didn't even know whether it was good or bad.

OMG I am sorry you going through this.. Now a days the medical staff are not so sensitive to their patients concerns and worries knowing its a weekend and that is extra few days. I pray to God  everything is well and you get answers asap....

Thanks V. Sadly that is true. They're just in it for the paycheck.

They did end up calling me back. Everything came back normal
