New Insurance – New Doctor

In last month’s post ‘Doctor’s Suggestion’, I wrote the following –

In my post ‘A Week’s Occurrence’, I wrote about an issue I was having with my body that I had some cause for concern.  This issue has continued just not to the extent that it did that particular week several months ago.  A couple of weeks ago I had my doctor’s visit for my physical.  Without going into a long boring story, I found out when I was at the doctor’s office, my health insurance had been cancelled unbeknownst to me.

In today’s post, I write the following –

This month I have new insurance and with that will come a new doctor.  This new insurance is much better than I previously had and I am very fortunate to have it.  With this new insurance I had to find a new doctor due to my previous doctor not accepting this plan.  This Thursday, I see my new doctor for the first time so that I may get a referral to go see an urologist.  I continue to have some issues and need to have a urology evaluation.

As you may remember in my post ‘Olivia wants to get physical‘, I prefer a male doctor; unfortunately I was unable to find another male doctor, so a female doctor it is.  Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against females being doctors, I just feel more comfortable with a male doctor looking at the male parts.  Oh well, all is good – I am sure this new doctor of mine will work out just great – after all, the sex of a doctor should not really matter.

So, this issue of mine has now been going on for a little over 4 months, with some days being better than others.  I will tell you I do have a little more information as a result of a recent hospital visit.  Without going into any details now about the reason for the hospital visit; there were some blood and urine lab tests that took place and a CT scan.  These tests did not tell the whole story but did provide some insight.  The urology evaluation will provide more information about my situation.

I still have some concerns; but decided a couple of weeks ago to not dwell on the situation.  There were some unexpected exciting events that took place in December I will share with you in future posts.  Also I enjoyed my Christmas very much and this last trip was a success in that the decision was made regarding our next home, in the next location of the next chapter of my partner’s and my life.

The concerns I may have now and the additional visits to doctors will not prevent me from planning the move that will take place very soon.

I will keep you posted!

    • Thank you, I should know more about what is going on in the next couple of weeks. This waiting sometimes has me thinking too much. I appreciate you reading and commenting and hope your day is a great one! 🙂

  1. Trade ya (vis a vis doctors). I prefer a woman, and they only could offer men. So, like you, I’ll suck it up, buttercup. The reasoning behind my own selectiveness regarding the gender of my physician is simple, I figure a man knows more about the male physiology, being male (and having experience) and the same for a woman. I also prefer a female doctor over 45 years of age and THAT combination is really hard to find. The older female doctor would be more familiar with my particular problems and have possible experience with them herself, so it’s only logical to prefer such. We do want the best care for our insurance dollars, and the best care seems to be as I’ve described. Too bad the world doesn’t work like that. I hope whatever is amiss is easy to treat and will look forward to reading your future blogs about your on-going medical adventures.

    • I feel fortunate that I have great insurance this year for a very reasonable price. I never use my insurance in the past because I am never sick. But then when this issue came about, I find out my insurance was cancelled. Anyway, doctor on Thursday, then I will continue from there to find out what is going on with me. Thanks for your input, always appreciated! 🙂

  2. Keep the positive attitude and everything will be fine… 🙂

    I can resonate with your concern about male/female doctors. In India, there are still some people who strictly prefer female doctors for the womenfolk of the family. Personally, I’ve no problem with the gender of the doctor, though. 🙂

  3. I shall keep everything crossed except my eyes, speaking from experience walking into doors is painful. I would tell you not to worry, but I’m an anxiety sufferer so I’ll probably get hit by lightening. I’ll offer you a hug instead, how’s that 🙂
