throbadelic: (announcement)
Earlier I let loose on this page that I might have something to say about my medical future in regards to my current condition. Well here's the current low down: Shortly after the holidays, I'll be letting Dr. V reattach my tailpipe so I'll be able to get rid of *The Bag*. It seems that Dr.s V&M met up with each other recently at SWGHC and I was mentioned, and Dr. M said my progress was going splendidly. When I saw Dr. M on Monday, he told me of this and advised for me to make an appointment with Dr. V asap. I had scheduled it for about 2:30 this afternoon, but got out of Ireland CC about an hour and a half before my scheduled visit, so I went to the Sunrise Deli in the main lobby and grabbed a V8 and surfed the net a little more.

Arriving at Dr. V's office at 2pm, I pretty much starred at her aquarium for about 45 minutes while in the waiting room. I really don't know what she has in there for sure, but I know that there are three angel fish, two mini catfish, a black and orange fish that looks like a salt-water clown fish, and three others that I have not a notion as to what they are.

Anyway, after being called in by one of the assistants and shown the room I was to go in; blood pressure taken and a remark that I look different (I regained weight I had lost because of the NPO restriction I was on during my initial stay last year,) I must have waited about another 30~45 minutes for Dr. V herself to come in. Before a very TMI-type of exam I had to endure, we agreed that the procedure would be better if it was done after the holidays, but I'll know better after a follow-up on December 15th.

Once again the oncologist is pleased with my progress to this point, but was surprised that he never got the financial assistance paperwork even though I now have 'caid. We're figuring that Dr. V got the honors of dealing with that instead!

Why are we goatly types soooooo easily irritated at times?
How long have I waited?
"" "" has the oncologist pestered me about this, only to have me say that the ball is in another's court?

Guess what?
Finally received notice that I've been determined to be eligible for Medicaid, and I get to pick a managed care plan (MCP). Big yips all around would be called for in this case, but there are three flies, if not more in the ointment:
1. I have to apply by tomorrow 8pm (1-14-10), or I'll have one assigned to me.
2. My doctors are with different MCPs: Oncologist is with CareSource, while the surgeon is with WellCare.
3. WellCare isn't provided as an option in the notice I received, but Buckeye Community Health Plan is. A sibling that works in health care doesn't have good things to say about them (Buckeye Community Health Plan), so I hope to avoid them as much as possible.

Ok, I have a fourth: Trying to do this online is near-impossible, so I'll have to "phone it in" tomorrow.

Yeah, that good.
