Call the dr or KEEP waiting for them to call

Went to the Dr a week ago and she said she wants to take half of my thyroid out but I still haven't heard anything on when. I really want to get this done because SO is leaving for a week the second week of october and then again a week after he gets baack. I want to do it really soon so i have help with DS but I hate to be the pushy client. What would you do ? Call and be pushy or just wait

  • I would wait a few more days and then call. Doctors are very busy and have other priority things right now. Wait till Thursday and if you haven't heard anything call Friday.

  • I would probably wait for her. She probably has things on her plate that are more imminent and will give you a call and schedule things.

  • I would call. What harm or inconvenience would it cause just to explain your situation and ask?

  • by all means call the doctror and ask him . It might have slipped his mind . after all he has more then just one patent to take care of and that detail might not have restered in his mind that he did not call you . so poke him and ask whats he going to do kill you .?

  • I say call. They should have scheduled it for you last time you were there when they brought it up.
