My uncertainty continues

Because I was not getting what I needed in the way of information from my Gyn/Onc I have decided to switch doctors. I received another recommendation from a friend who is an oncologist and proceeded to make an appointment (1st available new patient appt. wasn't until June 26th). I also cancelled my scheduled D&C with the other Gyn/Onc and gathered up all my records, biopsy slides, and films from ultrasound for the new doctor. In the process I discovered that my previous Gyn/Onc had not been completely honest with me. She said that her pathologist said the sample was inadequate and no diagnosis could be made. When they returned the slides to me they included a pathology report. It said that although the slides did not contain a lot of tissue what was there was very worrisome for cancer but could also be a polypoid adenomyoma with atypia (a rare but benign condition seen in premenopausal women - I'm 34). The pathologist recommended more extensive sampling of the endometrium to resolve the dilemma.

While my previous Gyn/Onc's decision to do a D&C wasn't wrong I would have appreciated it if she had shared the information from the pathologist. This just confirms my opinion of her as someone completely incapable of communicating with me.

Thanks for letting me vent.

Sorry to hear you are having all these problems with your docs. It is important to find one to trust and have good communication with.
June 26th is almost a month away! Is the time factor not that important with your type problem?
I believe you said you were moving to Pennsylvania. Don't forget Fox Chase
Cancer Center. I have been extremely pleased with my care from this institution.
Keep in touch.

Another Dr. May Be Best

I don't like reading things like this--oh, not from or about you, but about doctors. It makes me cringe because I had a real problem with my first oncologist not being truthful with me about the extent of disease and not liking it when I got all the hospital reports and caught him. (He said no lymph nodes were positive and there was nothing on the liver--THREE TIMES. With no medical training at all, I could clearly read four positive lymph nodes and a nodule on the liver. He said it didn't make any difference.) You're right to be looking for another doctor if you do not feel comfortable with this doctor, if you cannot communicate well, if you don't feel you can trust her. It's not an easy decision to make, but I really feel you are doing the right thing. I wish you the best.
