Called my Doctor yesterday, to get a prescription for some of the three painkillers I get daily, and to get an appointment, as I have had stomach problems for the past months ( since October, but turned it down as nerves due to all the family problems last year).

Bus due to Mums colon cancer two years ago, (and as it is running in my family as my Grandfather died from it) Mum forced me to make an appointment.

So I called yesterday and discovered that my Doctor has retired from 1/1 14!!!!!

Christiansen has been my Doctor for the past 30 years or so!!!!!!
He knows me, and have been there for me through, my cancer, Dads illness and death, and Mums cancer and family problems.

My new Doctor now is female (nothing wrong with that, just never had that before) but she is also 8 years younger than me!!!!!
But she is the daughter of the other partner that died a few years ago from Kidney cancer- and he knew all about Mum, Dad and me…and if she is anything like her dad, she will be fantastic…
I just liked the idea of someone that knew all my illnesses and problems for the rest of my life…

The doctor doesn't send you a letter when your doctor retires? They do here. You'll get a letter in the mail saying they're cutting back on hours or retiring or something like that. That's just kinda disconcerting.

I knew he had the age and he has been away once and again..but no note or anything....

That's just... I can't even believe that. Wow. I hope you like your new doctor and feel comfortable with him or her.

I seen your post fast on fb i answer you here. Sorry sweetie when a doctor followed you all your life its very difficult to have a new. You have the chance that the new know well your problems. Good chance with the new

Thanks Love, for your kind words.
She knows my history and I am sure she will be fine, just weird to get a new doctor after so many years.
♥Hugs and Love♥

I'm happy that you found a doctor you can trust because with all their knowledge and the possibilities they have TRUST is the one thing they can't buy and it's so important.
I think we both are now that age where we met every now and then people who are "older" than we are *giggles* (but it's not so often any more...)
In Germany we say "You are only so old as you feel for yourself" (some days I'm nearly an adult and others I'm older than my grandma...)

Thanks Darling.....as the daughter of the other partner,that knew me well too, I hope I can build trust with her.
Being mid 40´es makes me feel old when it comes to docters younger than me...and young compared to The Vikings:)
We have the same saying here in Denmark...and sometime I feel like I am 15, and sometime I feel like I am 90......

Arrrghhh!! Well...at least she knows some of what has happened? What a shock, really! You'd think the doctor's office would have called all the older patients to warn them!

Yeah I´ve met ehr before and she is a great doctor..I just need to get into the idea that she is younger than me...

I hope for an excellent report for you Pippii. ♥ ♥ Get an appointment to see the doctor as soon as possible and let us know what she says.
In future, please don't dismiss pains. Always better to check out what's going on.

Yeah, it's not easy changing doctors, so I feel for you! But I guess they have to retire sometime too! *hugs*

He had the age 65, but he know me and my medical history, so it is just weird...
But I am sure my new doctor will be fine...
