Below is the email I just sent to my oncologist. Amanda is the Physician's Assistant that I had my appointment with on Monday. She makes me feel a complete lack of confidence. On Monday when she told me my counts were too low to get treatment, I responded with, "Oh good. That means the chemo is working, right?" Her response to me, "Not necessarily." And that was it. Those are the kinds of answers I get from her. No explanation or depth to her answers. She's lucky she doesn't have her own practice because she wouldn't be able to retain any patients after their first visit with her.
I'm feeling very frustrated and like I was not informed correctly at my appointment on Monday about what I needed to do in order to get this going. Two days have passed without any action at all because somehow the prescription never went through. I feel as if I have slipped through the cracks and needed to bring this situation to your attention so that I can feel confident that it will get taken care of.
So...obviously I still haven't received my injection to boost my immune system. I'm so angry I cried (that's what I do when I get really, really mad). When I meet with my oncologist this coming Monday I will inform him that I will no longer have appointments with Amanda because I have no confidence in her.
Please keep the prayers coming. I am so nervous about getting sick. I am becoming a little neurotic. I visualize germs everywhere I go. I'm getting so bad that when I wash my hands and then dry them with a towel, I then use hand gel afterwards just in case the towel was harvesting any bacteria. Hopefully my craziness pays off.
