Dr. K

I had my one year follow up with my breast surgeon a couple weeks ago. The appointment was great...everything is fine and I only need to have yearly visits for the next 5 years. I love my surgeon and I was so glad to get to see him before the new year because it looks like we will be getting new health insurance and I won't be able to see Dr. K anymore. I am so upset about this but Dr. K recommended a new surgeon and assured me that he would make sure the transition went smoothly. I am still praying that my husbands company will change their mind and stay with the insurance we currently have. If we switch I will be losing most of my doctors who I have been seeing for years. We've been through a lot together. I love them and I don't want to have to start over again with new ones :( I know they will all help me find great doctors to switch to and I am so very thankful to have health insurance. Its just no fun switching doctors especially with my complicated medical history. On a happier note I was surprised to find that my sister had an appointment right before me with Dr. K. She is 9 years cancer free!!! No we did not plan this it was a very happy coincidence. We spent the rest of the day together and had a lot of fun.

I have my 1 year follow up appointment next week with my plastic surgeon. I will be losing him too :( boooooooo.
