I know how you feel about not being abole to get past those triage nurses. I went through a simialr ordeal when I was sick a few weeks ago, I then got sneaky about it.
I waited till after hours and called the pager of the on-call Doc.
I know it wasn't an emergency, But I felt like I was being ignored, and need immediate help.
Once I got through to him, he called in a RX that I needed and the whole conversation took about 5 minutes. Why couldn't they give me those 5 minutes earlier???
I understand the job of the triage nurses, to weed through the pateints, BUT I am a high risk patient at a specialists office, and I required the attention of a Dr.
I hate that the squeaky wheel gets the grease, sometimes we don't have the energy.
Plus, this type of aggrivation must be avoided by those of us inclined toward high BP'S!
Anyhow, i am glad that you are getting in tommorrow am.
I'll be thinking of you.
How far along are you btw?
