Anxiously Awaiting Mayo Verdict

Wednesday, January 26, 2011

By my calculations, either today or tomorrow, I should hear something from the Mayo Clinic regarding whether or not they will see me for surgery. Perhaps they won't see it as urgently as I do and will take their time calling me back, I don't know. I will only give them until this afternoon/tomorow morning and then I'll call them and ask. I've got to be proactive and my own advocate. There is a fine line between being a pain in the neck and being an advocate for yourself. I'm even willing to be seen as a royal pain in the neck at this point. My condition, pain and anxiety allows me this luxury.

    Good for you for taking that action!! It is so sad that it takes so much effort to get what you need. Our medical system is so frustrating. With your determination, you are bound to succeed! Keep up the good work and good attitude!!

    I am so glad that I called them! They didn't get the fax that I sent on Friday night even though I have a sheet that says that it went through. I quickly went to the UPS store and sent it twice more. Then and went home and checked to see if they had gotten it this time. They had gotten it. I will know something either on Friday or Monday for sure. If I hadn't taken the bull by the horns and gotten a number to check on my status, I could have sat forever. Yea me!
