That's what I call it when you begin new adventures with doctors. They find a reason to keep you coming back.
My husband is now on the Merry-Go-Round. After the heart surgery, the visits to the doctors increased. See your family doctor. See your Cardiologist. See your Surgeon. Back to the family doctor for several little visits. Surgeon turns him loose. Exercise picks him up. Exercise three times a week for ten weeks. Graduation. PT turns him loose. Pain in the kidney. ER treats for kidney stone. Wants to make an appointment for Urologist. Husband says no. Family doctor has another concern. THS low. Seeing a new doctor tomorrow. Wonder what she will want him to do next? He's wanting to get off the Merry-Go-Round.
A sister-in-law has just got on the Merry-Go-Round. She had colon cancer surgery and they found a spot on her liver. She's had scans and now they have plans for the "port" and the chemo to start Jan 5th. Her husband, husband's brother, has been riding the Merry-Go-Round all this year with his own problems.
Let's hope enough of us can stay well and off the Merry-Go-Round to be able to help those who are riding now.
