and let's not forget the "classic" tale in my journal that I heard from some dip endo that instead of treating me for hypothyroidism ............. after HE ablated my gland that ..........
I was having a brain anryrusm (sp)....
What a golden moment that was too!!!
Went in to see my GI doctor after having an abscess in the left buttock (not fun).
Doctor: Any other issues going on"
Me: Yes, I apparently have an abscess in my left buttock that I am pretty sure I developed in your hospital when you did the colonoscopy.
Doctor: No, you can't get it from that procedue.
Doctor: Your colonoscopy is normal, sorry about the abscess, but I can't help you there, you are on your own on that one
I kid you not he said, I was on my own with the infected abscess. Went to my regular doctor for the treatment. Had it cut and drained, turned out I had two different types of infection in the abscess that took a month and 3 antibiotics to get rid of.
Went to see my endo for a 6 month check up.
Told him I am still exhausted no matter how much sleep I get, moods changes and aches and pains I have in my legs.
Told the doc that I sleep 7 hours every night durning the week, but on the weekend when I can sleep longer I sleep 12+ hours.
His response is....I'm depressed and put me on an anti-depression pill.
I understand maybe thinking of it due to the mood changes, but tried the pills and it makes me want to sleep more?? Clueless on what to do now?
Sometimes I think they just say what they want and send you out the door. Oh make sure your co-pay is paid first.
Another HUMF moment..!!!!!
My old endo told me the reason why I was anxious and having hot flashes (when I was still quite hypo), was because I was there to see him!!! Ha!!! Arrogance like he was some Brad Pitt or something. AND....as he said it he patted me on the knee!!! Glad I got a new doc. She's a fiesty little spitfire....hehe....but she wouldn't pat my knee! LOL
(cough) on that one.
great endo!! ( cough)
