More Hospital TroublePosted: June 29, 2012
After a two hour ordeal last Tuesday afternoon involving lengthy hold times, hangups (guess they got tired of the ringing), and wrong extensions, my HSG is scheduled for Tuesday morning.
Then Wednesday I got an email that I had new information on MyChart. I’m loving that I can access my appointments online and get automatic emails anytime there’s a change, because who knows how long it would have been before I found out that they’re closing the infertility clinic and canceling my appointment. Yeah, the October 5th appointment that should have been last September.
I now have an appointment October 22 at the new ‘problem clinic.’ Serious WTFs going on here. I spent a while going around in circles with the receptionist, who finally gave up on me calming down and transferred me to the same dead end voice mailbox that I’ve left dozens of messages in and never received a callback.
I went to bed and cried for an hour.
Ian made some phone calls, and the office of the RE who abandoned all his patients last year has a couple of new doctors. So it looks like I’m going to be getting a part time job at McDonald’s, because they offer insurance to their hourly employees that covers 82% of infertility treatments, including IVF and medications. Apparently a goodly number of their patients work at McD’s for the insurance. Thanks, nice office lady, for the info!
Such a brief summation, that doesn’t begin to touch on the depression hell I have been trapped in the past few days. Maybe I can write about that later.
