sunday waiting for no news monday

Another doctors appointment tomorrow.
I had hoped to find out some answers about my foot tomorrow, but I was told that they dont read the results of the Nerve tests until after the 18th.
So, here I figure I will go to my doctor tomorrow for my regular 3 month check up, blood pressure check, get my refills and then what? Go back again after the 18th so she can discuss my test results or, more than likely and this is what I expect to happen, get a phone call from her nurse, saying, "your results are normal".
As this is the state of health care we have here.
They never go into detail, they never discuss numbers, etc, as I guess they dont think average patients will understand.
But more than likely, because they also dont understand what they are looking at.
Why my Neurologist referred the test results back to my doctor, shouldnt the neurologist have been the one to read them and explain them to me???
I dont get it.
But I will not settle for a NORMAL result.
Because ones foot being completely numb for 2 months, is not normal.
All I could hear from my doctor and the Neurologist was, "is your back hurting",?
And then of course the neurologist did the muscle test on my back.
I guess where they were going was a pinched nerve in my back.
And that might very well be so, but my back isnt numb, and I am NOT having back surgery.
Which is another suggestion I expect to hear.
This is what we are offered for healthcare in my neck of the woods.
I already regret having had the tests done here.
Wishing I had waited and gone to University of Kentucky and hoping that my insurance will pay for a second opinion.
The only option I will have is to go get my test results and go elsewhere.
Or learn to live with whatever the heck is wrong with my foot.
