Cysto scheduled

I heard back:

Burgess, Scott M.D.

8:17 AM (5 hours ago)
to me
Thanks for the update, lets look in on Monday if you can make it.  I think I have a procedure slot of two late in the morning.   If you can to call the office today and ask to talk to Debbie, she can get it set up.
Scott V. Burgess, M.D.
Riverside Urology Specialists
Williamsburg and Newport News

I made the call this morning and the person who answered the phone was a bit nonplussed, saying she saw nowhere to put me in. I told her that Dr. Burgess had asked me to call in and arrange it with Debbie. She relented and said she would talk to Debbie. I hadn't heard back by about 1:30, so called and spoke to a much more accommodating office person. She told me it looked like they had me down for 10:40 a.m. on Monday, and that she'd talk to Debbie. I have the appointment on my calendar and will definitely be there.

Now the questions begin - do I need surgery again? Do I need steroids? If surgery is recommended, a second opinion with Dr. Volz is a given. Any other advice or plan will have to be considered for a second opinion as well. Dr. Volz is in Portsmouth right now and moving back to Williamsburg in a couple months. That means a lot of paperwork for me with new patient stuff in both places, but I trust him. He took care of Richard and has followed him since his hospitalization with Lyme disease. 

I'm still beside myself with this urgency, frequency, and pain situation. I've had it.
