      P. S.   FYI:  I went to Mayo Clinic in JAX, FL. for surgeries, scans, and "master" oncologist.  Got CT scan results the SAME day which saved me a lot of insomnia.  I am also a chronic worrier/cynic/doubter/skeptic                  ;   I DO HOPE and PRAY for the best but always face the reality of what could be the worst.  DON'T be afraid to push for more immediate "attention" and get your local Dr. or Sloan-Kett. Dr. to give you Avitan or something like that to help you chill at nite.  If they can't grant you that little bit of compassion, then I would personally "fire" them.
