: I was APPALLED earlier today that my RE had a nurse call me with the news of my negative beta, and he didn't even follow-up with a phone call to discuss the situation! And, it turns out he doesn't have follow up appointments for "failed cyles" for two damn months!!!

: My questions are:
: 1) Shouldn't I expect to hear directly from my RE after a failed cycle?
: 2) Isn't two months a bit long to wait for a follow-up appointment?

: I'm upset enough that the beta was negative. My RE's insensitivity just compounds my pain and anger. OK, gotta go have a good cry now....

I am so sorry..I can really relate to how you are feeling. The results are hard enough to bear and these RE's add insult to injury with their lack of compassion. I had a similiar situation at Cornell, where my RE was suppose to call me to discuss my negative beta, well to make a long story short I'm still waiting for that phone call from dear Dr. Spandorfer it's been 10 months now. Needless to say I never went back to him. Don't let them get away with such awful behavior we pay them good money they should have the decency to follow up no matter how busy they are! And again I'm so very sorry things didn't work this time. Prayers are with you that your dreams come true!
