Understanding the physician will always side with caution, I asked the general surgeon's nurse will there be any diagnostic testing during or after the exam to see if the incisions have healed? The nurse replays, no this is only a physician's examinations of my abdomen. I scheduled an appointment with the general surgeon.
My frustration builds because I have to pay another co-pay to hear another doctor say "you can't run for another 3 to 4 weeks"! I GET IT! My primary care doctor already told me the same thing. I have another appointment with my primary care next week and another co-pay.
In total, I'll pay $95 in co-pays. I don't get a t-shirt that says I've completed 3 to 4 weeks of NOTHINGNESS. This is no medal from crossing over the 4 week hash mark. There will be no split times, no water stations, and no one to cheer me into that final day. I'm sure there's a joke here some where...how many doctors have to see you to tell you not to run?
What a crock of poop.
