So, after talking to The Mister, we decided to just make another fill appointment. We figured it would be good to utilize this tool I wanted almost two years ago, and try to talk to the doctor and voice my concerns. I will have to talk to their business office and work out some sort of payment plan for the crazy $250 payment for a fill.
So today I called and the next available appointment is Tuesday, April 30th.
*cough cough* excuse me?
Brief back history - my LB doctor is based out of a metro area located 3 hours away (more if there's traffic). They come up to an area about 45 minutes away from me every Tuesday and one Saturday per month. So I used to schedule an appointment for the one Saturday a month, or if I wanted to see them more frequently, I would schedule a doctors' appointment leave at work and go on a Tuesday.
So I inquired about the weekly Tuesday visits; they no longer do that, they don't feel it's necessary. So my choice is April 30th or May 11th.
I got a little frustrated, and instead of taking it out on anyone, I told her I would have to call them another time to schedule.
It's bad enough that I am having so many doubts with this whole lap band thing; this makes it worse. Now I can't even utilize this tool except two days per month that you see fit? I know I may be over exaggerating, but it's so hard not to let this pull me down more about why I got the lap band to begin with.
I need a minute to cool off; very upset at how unavailable the support I'm supposed to have seems to be.
