I had my check up with the Radiation Oncologist. It’s a group of, I don’t know maybe 20 doctors. Today I met with the only female doctor. I really like her, she’s easy to talk to. so of course she’s leaving. I’ve actually not ever seen a doctor at that practice that I did not like. So today I asked for their opinion about firing my Gyno/Oncologist. She gave me her blessing. As long as there are no problems I will only go to the Radiation Oncology practice. If there is a problem I have to go back to a gyno/oncologist. In the city of Toledo, the fourth most populace city in the state of Ohio, there are only TWO Gyno/Oncology practices. UHG. So, if I have to go back I only have two choices. One more reason to hope it never comes back!

Why do I no longer want to go to my oncologist you ask? Well, I am not comfortable with him, or anyone else in his office. No one ever really talks to me there, and I need someplace that I am comfortable enough to ask questions. I also find that my oncologist seems to do a lot of things because that’s the way he’s always done them. He also always hurts me. The radiology oncologists never hurt me. well, not much, but he always does. I don’t mind not joyfully looking forward to an appointment but I don’t want to dread it. So there you go.

Check up went reasonably well. Nothing alarming. Still healing, ever…so….slowly….. but at least still healing. Confirmed a couple of my suspicions about things that were going on. You don’t need the gory details about that!

  1. It’s not right that he somehow always ends up hurting you. I wish you the best of luck with everything ❤

  2. @xdeelynnx – I AGREE! Thank you. To give him his due he is supposed to be the best surgeon around so I’m glad he did that part.

  3. I am glad you’re healing and no, you should not have to put up with an oncologist or any specialist who has a crappy bedside manner.

  4. I am sorry you only have two choices but let us hope that this is never an issue again!!! I am glad this other group will be there for you. I think it is so important to have doctors that you feel good about and comfortable with. Having worked in one dental office but having tried so many different practices, it always seemed to come from the top down. If the doc was not nice and personable, the office personal tended to be really unhappy. Honestly, docs have an idea when something is uncomfortable or downright hurts and the good ones handle it with sympathy and compassion. I’m sorry you had to put up with that.

  5. Well I have no doubt in my heart that just as soon as you are healed you will be in good shape from here on out so you will not need the mean doc

  6. I’m glad you are doing what you feel  you need to do.  sounds like if I were a woman I wouldn’t want to go to your oncologist, either.  heck, I’m a man and i don’t want to go your oncologist.  small wonder, huh?

  7. You definitely don’t want to be going somewhere that you’re not comfortable, especially for something like this. Lets hope it doesn’t come back ever again 🙂

  8. When I was pregnant with my daughter my OBGYN had horrible bedside manner.  She was very cold and often snarky.  I’m not confrontational at all…so I put up with it until I was 30 weeks (I know, I shouldve done it sooner) but she made some snarky comment and I just got up and left in the middle of my appointment.I vowed from then on that I wouldn’t put up with a dr that I wasn’t 100% happy with.  I’m glad you were able to do the same.

  9. Good luck.

  10. What? No details? Hrumph

  11. @Muzwah – Hard to brlieve I didn’t take pictures isn’t it?

  12. Feeling comfortable with your physician is primo. It is one of the criteria comfirmed why I’m still with mine for so many years. I don’t have anything serious going on but go at least twice a year. Good you’re healing… heal  more.:)

  13. @plantinthewindow – I bet it would make for good conversation in their office if you showed up!

  14. “I really like her, she’s easy to talk to. so of course she’s leaving.”That’s basically some law of nature. It’s always the case!!Hope you find someone you like, I’m sure you will. 🙂

  15. I don’t think most men try to be careful.  I much prefer a woman as she know first hand what it is like!!  I’m once again between doctors.  Mine quit and went to another town.  Then came back part time.  I hadn’t been to the doctor in over 2 years.  I went in and she told me she would see me in a year.  I asked her if she would be here in a year.  She said yes that she would be here.  That she would be coming back full time.  And guess what………I hear she is gone.  So I am at a loss as to what to do.  The only doctors in this town are 2 guys and one gal that people say doesn’t know a thing and one witch.  lol  And I won’t go to them!

  16. That’s crummy.  It’s bad enough to have to go, but to dread being hurt is worse.  Do you know anything about the other doc?
