Some of my hospital experience includes 11 years as an emergency room supervisor at a VA hospital, andf4 years as a medical transcriptionist. Being disabled since 2001, I have seen many a doctor and researched my medical condition. Other than my degenerative joint/disk disease, I have had 5 operations which included metal implantation and cadaver bone implants and currently I am being evaluated for a spinal cord stimulator. I research my medical condition continually on line, as well as research the treating doctors credentials. I live with pain constantly. I have been told by doctors that I will have to live with the current pain for the rest of my life but hope and research any new ideas that I can bring to my doctors attention for my current medical evaluation.
Sorry to say I am not but I worked in the medical field,(21 years) have much education working with doctors and the idea is to educate them because they are not always up on the latest medical information. Example: piriformis muscle, the medical community is debatable on this issue and one doctor told me, 'if they can't see it or touch it, to them it doesn't exist'.
