hmmm. let me see if i can remember that far back - PCP ordered the chest xray - and the blood work [adding in anything else she could think of].
your primary MIGHT not be as supportive of the WLS as she could be, as Nessa said, but i've also seen and heard of primaries pulling this stuff for people undergoing other surgeries. in fact, one of my friends had to have a hysterectomy for a possible cancer, and she bounced back and forth between her primary and the surgeon for about 3 weeks! just trying to get one of them JUST ONE OF THEM to order the blood work.
