Self care lacking for my bronchiectasis
I am 65 yo and have been treated for bronchiectasis for 40+ years. I had a lobectomy 38 years ago. I am still in the practice I started with but many of the docs I saw retired. I have done self care but see doc for emergencies as well as every 3-5 months. They are now owned by Compass. In April they called and rescheduled my routine appt to August. I am on a waiting list for the next new pulmonologist. There have been times I called and they told me go to ER as they didn’t have available appt. My family has watched me struggle and want me to go to U of M instead. When I went to pick up my records they suddenly can get me in. Should I take them up on that appt or continue with a doc change? The existing doc is ten min away vs 1 1/2 hours . I’m torn.
