I think the thing that annoys me the most is that my original complaint that got me into all of this medical nightmare STILL hasn't been addressed. I talked to my family physician about it in February...pain in my hip and groin. He sent me to another doctor who ordered a CT scan and sent me to another one who ordered an MRI. Both scans revealed the kidney cancer. That's where everyone dropped the ball on my pain. All attention turned to the cancer. My continuing complaints of hip and groin pain have been effectively ignored. I understand that the urgency of addressing the cancer problem, but the pain has steadily increased. In February it was an occasional pain. Eight months later it's to the point that I hurt every time I stand up or sit down. If I shift in my chair more than a couple of inches it hurts, and about every four or five steps when I'm walking. I'm planning a trip to my chiropractor next week to see if he can help me. My only problem with that is my health insurance will only authorize twelve visits a year. Typically the chiropractor wants to do an adjustment about every day for a week or two, which burns through the authorized visits pretty quickly.
