Always Always Always have them mail you a copy of the referral. I put a note on my calendar a week before the appt to call and confirm that they've received the referral. It completely sucks that you have to ride people's backs to do their job.
It helps to make nice to the referral coordinator too -she can make things a lot easier for you.
Sorry you had to go through all of that. I hope the doc had some good magazines - when it happened to me, all he had was golf magazines. I was bored as hell (in addition to frustrated!)
Ask your doc for cytomel...it has been a lifesaver for me with the fatigue..it is a thryoid drug that helps with energy and also if you are overweight will help with that also...to help releive that pain take care and God bless Robin
