Yep! It's happened. I've moved and with said move must now find a new oncologist. I can honestly say that I'm just peachy with this as my former one refused to utilize the lavage method (which means to wash or flush a cavity with saline solution) in order to get a clear pap. The last appointment he claimed it was unnecessary, though former tests proved otherwise. And thus, I was without adequate cells to get a clear test result. Argh!!!!
So I am on the search again. Luckily this time, I have some friends (thanks cousin!) who know people. I shall soon be traipsing down to the University of Utah (Go Utes!) to get my insides scraped in hopes that I finally get a clear reading on where I stand. I should still be on the 3 month test rotation, but the rapid change in circumstances has kept me from keeping my calendar as I should. I really do want that 5 year title of SURVIVOR!!
In the meantime- I will again be calling my insurance company to find out their procedure and re-acquainting myself with said protocol so that I don't get caught unawares by the medical/insurance industry.
Hopefully everyone reading has had their yearly or has it scheduled. It's a must my friends. If we don't take care of ourselves....who will?!
All my love,
