I had my first appointment with my new obstetrician last Wednesday. I have to say, he was the nicest man I have ever met. Seriously, I think he was the nicest human being I have ever met.
Unfortunately, my blood pressure was high once again (as expected). So, I have to perform a 24 hour urine collection. For those of you who have never had PIH or Preeclampsia, this is simply when you have to urinate in a jug for 24 hours. Then, you give this ginormous jug of urine to a lab, where they analyze it. When I came home with the jug, John asked me why I was carrying a gas can! HA!I came to the appointment, armed with all of my medical records in hand. I had copies of my pap smear done in April, and all of my bloodwork results. However, Dr. NiceGuy performed another pelvic exam and ordered more bloodwork. Kind of frustrating, but I appreciate the fact that he is being cautious.
I feel relieved to finally be away from Cooper Hospital. I am just so sick of fighting with the billing department and my insurance company. I am hopeful that this new office will be able to process my bills correctly. Wish me luck on my new adventure to actually have my insurance company pay my doctor bills. I know it sounds impossible, but I am hopeful.
P.S. The girl who was scheduling appointments, informed me that Dr. NiceGuy delivered two babies on the Baby Story show on TLC.
