I dont know where to begin...
Transport is ridiculous. they were a hour and a half late to pick Tracey up for radiation treatment. Then tried to blame Tracey because they wanted to get her an hour and a half early but she wasn't ready. Then Radiation was mad that she was on a gurney and not in a wheelchair. Their elevator doesn't accommodate a gurney. I had to explain to them that it was tracey's dr. that ordered the gurney because of the DVT. And of course I explained in the nicest possible way..... Today has been a bad day for my temper..
The Radiation Oncologist told me that the right side weakness will subside as steroids take affect. They also told me that she should have never been taken off of the Steroids - I heard the Dr's talk about the notes saying "its in my notes and Dr. Garons notes that she should remain on the steroid treatment, why did neurology DC them?" Again the well organized multi discipline UCLA machine strikes again.
After radiation Tracey's pain grew to an 8 and as we arrived back at the room Dr. Garon was there. Tracey discussed the pain with him and then he met with Dr. Stein. They came back together and basically told Tracey that the first thing they need to do is get her back to where she was on Thursday. So, Dr. Stein ordered the PCA pump of Dilaudid. She is being removed from all Oral meds. Also, starting tomorrow she will become a part of the resident Oncologist rounds.
I know there is a lot of information here so I am going to open up the Comment Section for questions.
