Please excuses for being ling and any typos as I'm speaking into my Cell phone. On December 21 I was taken to emergency for a bruised kidney and they conducted a cat scan which found calcification in the stomach aorta Noted as changes in stomach aorta. I followed up with the veterans administration And they only followed up with me last week. I doctor stated the CD of Carscan provided them from ER will not be read By cardiology. No follow up fast nothing was ordered not even lab work. My doctor stated they will just put me on statins. When I inquired about my previous lab work 3 weeks ago before this incident my lab work was perfect. I asked why they would give me statins without at least reviewing the CD to see where we're at with this. I was told again cardiology would not review the CD and because I am a 60 year old female they just wanna throw I was told again cardiology would not review the CD and because I am a 60 year old female they just wanna throw these medications At me. I reminded my doctor I cannot be on aspirin or Statins since I am a 7 year survivor of 2 major brain bleeds and Statins are in direct correlation with the potential of setting off another bleed. I am seeing a private Dr. to get referral ti a Cardiologist thru my spouse insurance for second. I can not believe Statins would be thrown at me with our even evaluating the CD. And, since lab work is excellent since going fill plant based eating don't you think some research should be put into this or at least an actual appt with Cardio to follow thru???
