Double grrrrrr

So after not being home for the past 3 weeks due to having to run errands right after school and volunteering during the entire day at DS's school, I FINALLY was able to make my needed phone calls.

First was to the Pain Management doc to see if they would take me as a patient for my kidney stones and being pregnant. Well the office had my number written down wrong so they did call me back but 2 weeks ago! The office manager talked to the doc and they do not take pregnant patients. Thank goodness I called my regular doc as soon as I got off the phone with them to get an appt to get a note like calleiah suggested. THANK YOU! I have an appt on Wed.

So after getting DD home, I decided to make my phone calls to OB's in the area to see if any of the OB's have ever had a kidney stone patient before. I only had to make 4 until I found one that has had patients with kidney stones. I am not too fond that it is a big practice but I need someone local that has the knowledge of stones and pregnancy and an office that is contactable at all hours of the day/night. And they are just across from the hospital. The bad? The docs will have a meeting on Tuesday (they have one every Tues) and discuss if they will take me as a transfer patient. I am hopeful but a pregnant woman riddled with stones does not make the "prefect" patient. Even though I am a great patient, just not with intervention happy OB's. And if practice doesn't work, the 1st office I called has had a previous patient with stones. And if not them, there are others here. And if not any regular OB's here, I guess high-risk it is. GRRRRRR

Re: Double grrrrrr

Im glad the protocol idea is panning out for you. I thought of it because of friends who have chronically ill kiddos that frequently need er treatment got tired of the hit or miss care they were getting. A protocol makes it simple and explains everything.

Hope you are able to figure out the doc situation!
