Communication frustration

OK-English is my first language so imagine my surprise when as I just took a call from Queen's imaging department pre-registering me for my procedure scheduled for next Tuesday. Wow longer than I had hoped but at least we can get this biopsy out of the way. Biopsy? No sir, we are pre-registering you for your mediport insertion. No your not thank you , and I call the Nurse in Pali Momi whom was to get with me Friday.....She proceeds to explain that they will not schedule the biopsy until at least a week after my last aspirin use so that will be tomorrow? What are you talking about? I haven't taken nor discussed taking aspirin with you however, we most certainly DID discuss with the doctor that there would be no need for the port until after the biopsy procedure!
