Fucking medical bureaucracy bullshit has got me crying again. WTF?!
There has been nothing more frustrating in this entire process than trying to deal with ordinary doctors getting fucking test results.
I had my Day 3 test and STD panel re-done at the beginning of march before my IVF Consult. For some reason, the AMH and HTLV tests did not get done. The nurse had no idea why. I completely freaked out (as you can read here) but my RE said we could continue with the appointment as scheduled. (They had told me it would be canceled if I did not have all of my tests done.) The nurse reordered the tests and I did them the same afternoon.
That was 2 weeks ago. Spring Break threw off my schedule and I forgot to wonder why I hadn't heard about the results. I called on Tuesday and was told that the results are in and that the doctor would get back to me. Why does a freaking doctor need to release the results? They won't even fax results to another doctor. I have to pick them up.
So I call back today. The doctor is still not in, but should be this afternoon. I tried to explain that I MUST HAVE THE RESULTS TODAY! My baseline ultrasound is tomorrow. They must hear a tone of month late lab tests like mine because they (all 3 of the people I talked to) just used the standard lines "I left a message for the doctor and I will have to wait until he/she responds." I told my entire sob story. I AM PAYING $18,000 TOMORROW FOR IVF. I HAVE PLANNED MY ENTIRE LIFE AROUND THIS EVENT. I MUST HAVE MY 2 MEASLY TEST RESULT TODAY!!!!!! Fuck.
Then I got off the phone, started sobbing uncontrollably. And now we're here.
I've calmed down now and am now going to treat my self to Starbucks. Decaf.
