I have a doctor's appointment this afternoon.

I don't think they're going to do anything other than assessment, but if they do happen to pull out that filter, I may be making some doped-up posts somewhere on the internet.  Just an FYI.  :P

I'm going to bring up my concerns.  I've never been to this doctor before (he's on the medical assistance program), so I hope he takes me seriously.  I dealt with several "medical professionals" who didn't listen to me when I said I needed an ultrasound or some sort of scan of my lower abdominal area last year when it turned out I did have something very wrong, and I'm not keen to do so again.

Also nervous about the filter removal.  I was stupid (trying to be smart and inform myself to *ease* my fears) and Googled it, to discoverthat there seems to be a number of people who got the filter stuck inside their vein, leaving the patient in need of blood thinners for the duration of their lives so as to prevent further blood clots (due to the circulation problems brought on by the filter). It was freaky enough as it was.  Blech.  *shudders*
