Re: Ultrasound Results - Hypervascular Solid Nodule
I know what you mean about drs not getting in a hurry to get something done. I had my ultrasound done the 3rd, I personally went by the hopsital on the 5th (4th was a holiday) and picked up my copy, and my dr's office just got a copy today. And is only b/c I called and asked about the results. They returned my call and said that they had just gotten the report a little while before. I think they forgot that they had previously told me that when I had tests done at the hospital next door, they always got the results the next day b/c they were online with the hospital and all they had to do was print it off. I have not let them know that I get a copy of my report before they do and I didn't even want to go there. I just wanted my dr to read it and tell me what to do next which I am guessing is a fine needle aspiration.
Anyway, get a copy of your report yourseld and of your bloodwork and have it in hand when you go. My experience has been when I wait for one dr to fax over stuff, it may or may not get there, and if it does, it floats around several floors and may eventually get to my file. So, it just makes it simpler to carry in hand. The dr (specialist) never seem to read them before the visit anyway.
Well, good luck and hope all goes well.
Didn't mean to get so wordy - guess I was just letting off a little steam.
