I had an MRI scheduled..I left my place at 10, my apt was at 1030 usually only takes me 15 mins tops to get to the hospital. So there was an accident on the way, then I couldnt find a parking spot..I get in and grab my ticket to register at the front desk..I get right in..I look at my phone and it says 10:28..ok good got 2 mins..they register me, then I go over to the MRI department. They look up after a min and say oh you were late so we gave your apt away. WTF! I have been waiting to get this MRI for a flippin yr! I have a tumour on my pituitary glad (right under my brain) Thank God not cancer, but still could affect my eye sight. ect. I have had a migraine for since a week ago Sunday (Dec 19th) I was in the hospital twice over Christmas because I was in so much pain. I am pretty good now..but I had to take 2 tylenol 3s this morning.
So anyways, the point is I have been waiting for awhile to get this to see if it has grown, stayed the same, or shrunk. So she looks at me and tells me I am late so they gave my apt away..I open my phone and show her the time..10;34!!!!! 10:34! Seriously!
I was so upset because last time I passed out because of the dye they use and from laying down so long, I reacted and passed out. I had to get my aunt to come with me just incase she needed to drive me home after..or at least drive me to work.
My MIL was very upset, she worries about me alot and she told her twin who just called me at work..She told me to call the patient hotline at the hospital and to put in a complaint and explain what happened. I get so nervous doing stuff like that..but what do you think..should i call or just leave it..They rescheduled for Jan 7th which means I have to take another half sick day urgh!
I have have 2 MRI's in the past and always have had to wait a good half hour! But I am 4 mins late this time and they give my apt away. I honestly think that something came up and they needed to fill that spot..fine I understand, another week wont kill me, but dont lie to me. The other reason I think its fishy is because of the fact that if you "miss" your apt, you usually need to go back to the dr to reschedule..and they gave me the choice of 3 different dates in the next week.
Sorry so long but I need to know if I should call and not let them get away with being rude, or just leave it.
