Ok. Thanks. I will see him Monday and get more information about my situation (if anything). I’m sure he’ll be able to help me.
He tends to send me to my cardiologist for Coumadin monitoring and I suspect he will tell me to see my cardiovascular surgeon. Which really wouldn’t help me because going back to the surgeon that said “see you next year “ is not what I’m looking for as I don’t trust him since he felt annoyed by my presence.
He could have at least send me for an evaluation to inform me how big or small it is.
It’s probably too small to do anything about it but I would like to know the size so that I can find relief in knowing it’s not going to burst anytime soon.
The trauma hospital thought I would have to return for surgery at a later time so I have the right to know why he said that. When a cardiovascular surgeon says I will have to return for surgery just not in an emergency room case that it can wait until later.
Thanks Tom

Call the trauma center and ask for health information management. Tell them you would like a copy of everything in your chart from that timeframe. You’ll have more answers. There’s usually information I’d never think to ask. Also, when a physician blows me off and makes me feel like an idiot, I find a new physician. By both word of mouth and internet reviews. Hope all goes well.
