Ablation done on December 5th....and now....

So, I lived thru the ablation...evidently saying nasty things while under anesthesia! " Put lots of ice and call if you have any problems at all"....okay-will do. Saturday our furnace died, coldest weather in Georgia in 30 years...I took my plants down into my room to keep em from dying...on Monday the furnace was fixed and I was bending over to pick up one of the plants and B O O M!!!!!  Door knob.....hit hard and directly on the injection site-thought I was gonna die! Dealt with it for a couple of days then when it would not subside I decided "Okay, I will call the doc" and so....as my doc loves to do....I never got a call back.  I am so sick and tired of incompetence!  I dont know if it is the staff not delivering the message or the doc just not returning the message but this is the 2nd time in 6 weeks this has happened.  The first time was during one of the blocks he did to prepare for the ablation, I spoke directly to him and told him I was in pain...call me tomorrow and let me know better or worst.  I called, worst,,,,no call back and he left for Thanksgiving Holiday. I am seeing him on the 22nd for a follow up and I am not going to be very happy with him... IS IT JUST ME??????   I am starting to think I am becoming "one of those patients" I could not stand when I worked in ophthalmology for shit sake!

this doctor sounds like a real butt!! it might be possible that he\'s not getting your messages but probably he is. i\'d have to go and let him know how dissatisfied i was with his lack of follow up with you. maybe a threat to go elsewhere might work???
