Give him a swift kick in the *** and tell him if it hurts he must be imagining it
OK, just kidding, but surely you can see another endo? I have found that if you make a stink, you get what what you want. I asked mine, "Can you GUARANTEE my nodule isn't cancerous?" Of course he had to say "no." Then I said something like, "So if it turns out the nodule is cancerous but you refused to do a biopsy when I requested it..." He pretty much understood the implication of "lawsuit" and performed the biopsy soon after.
If it makes you feel any better, I still have not received any treatment for my symptoms, but have been offered antidepressants. Gee, thanks for the offere, but..I'm not depressed.
