You've got another issue though.
You don't just have a health issue. You now have a worry/anxiety/mental health issue. Whatever priority you had before is now enhanced because you are worried and facing a 1+2+ month wait.
And who should they bump? They should bump someone who is getting an annual exam. There are lots of people that get annual exams because of family history. But you are more important because you have actual symptoms!
Anyway, first available doesn't mean you are bumping anyone. It just means that when someone cancels they call you.
Sometimes, it can be easier if someone else calls for you, your husband, your doctor, a relative or friend. That person can say things that would make you sound pushy, ya know? Like, "I'm calling to make him an appointment because I'm worried. He's really not a complainer at all, he's one of the most stoic people I know. But this really has me concerned because he's hurting and not able to do ***. I was looking for any way to get him in earlier, because the wait is eating him up. " You can't say you're stoic, but I sure can!
After 4 m/c, our is here!
