After getting my scan and having a consult with Dr. Mehta 2 weeks ago, things have been at a standstill. My many calls to the Vascular Center have yielded the same result: “You will be scheduled for the venoplasty, but we don’t know when.” On the upside, now I have a diagnosis code which I’m assuming will let me get the treatment somewhere else if I need to. Right now I’m trying to come up with Plan B and I wonder if anyone in Syracuse is performing the venograms/plasty? Maybe it’s time to start knocking on doors of vascular surgeons here in town. I don’t mind doing that, but I don’t know how I should go about it. Phone calls? Those will probably be shunted (haha) by the receptionists who are busy with ‘normal’ patients. Should I mail a letter and packet of info? And if so, will it make it to the doctor’s hands? Should I show up at their office with a packet? Suggestions welcome!
Tomorrow I’ll call Dr. M’s again. In the meantime, I’m waiting for my very first grandbaby to arrive. She should be here any day now!
