Some progress on the medical frustrations and yet another fight


Well, I finally have the chroipartocr nailed down, and approved, at least for 3 vists. My doctors office is at last, taking action on the paperwork that is needed for my durable goods. 

Almost two full mt’s of phone calls, visits, letters and aggravation later, I might finally be seeing an end to this saga. Now, with my appointment with GI to discuss what needs to be done regarding my GI issues, I fully expect another fight. As the fools did all the tests, but did absolutely nothing, with regard to even investigating the matter further.

This, unforgivably, is rather typical. Unless there is some gross issue apparently, the tests are classed as ” good” and ignored. Now, this is despite the fact that I went in for such testing to check on two things. Hemorrhoids, which have become a major problem, of which they freely admit are there but they have made no move, to do anything about them.

Coupled with the gut itself is very plainly twisted, and causes great pain and problem, yet this was also listed as “good” Now I have only one question, if all that is ” good” I would bloody well hate to see what they considered bad ! Having IBS on top of malfunction due to everything being twisted and bound up, is not fun, let me assure you.

Needless to say, I am not taking this well, as to my mind, both issues need to be addressed. In one case, it would be a simple day surgery and one hopes,  the end of the problem. But it seems they would rather leave them be, and let them do again what they have already done to me once, which was nearly bleed me out, until I was finally able to stop it, on my own.

I staved off going to ER over it, and perhaps I should not have, as then I might have had their attention. On the other issue, I repeatedly hear things like ” well surgery creates that” as if nothing can be done about it. ( Scar tissue and adhesion’s ) Which I know full well is a bogus statement, as I had such issues, from other causes before and  the surgeon was well able to remedy the problem. As what it takes, is one who gives a damn.

What I am hearing, is that they see these issues as minor and unremarkable. Never mind the fact, that both are a daily source of pain and difficulty. 

Now, the main reason for this blow off, is fairly simple. The hemorrhoids as I said, are a simple matter, but since no one SAW me bleeding every time I moved for days on end, they are basing their prognosis of “good” totally on visuals.

Even the Doctor who did the frist exam asked me, before he even attempted it ” if you have had them for years, why are you bothering to complain about them now ?” He really did ask me this. I was rather curt in my reply to say the very least.

So I can assume that he is the major drawback. He is also the same dim wit I had to have nearly a fit to get something for the pain the proceeduoe caused, in order to be allowed to leave, at all. As you were not alowed to leave, until you felt well and I certainly did not, but I had to threaten to leave AMA in order to get his attention to do anything about it.

Since he could not complete the intended prodeeure, others were ordered that clearly show the “gut twisted like a corkscrew” I was not only told this, I saw it with my own eyes. This by the way, is why the other scope process, failed.

Now, I have a pretty good idea on what has caused this and my PCP agrees, but what needs to happen is to look at the outside of the gut, in order to confirm that. Which of course, neither test, did. As in both cases, what they were looking at was the inside of the gut, with shows no blockages or polyps.

Which I guess is where the so called ” good” comes from. So its back to the fray and go at loggerheads with some medical types in a few days, to force their hand to DO something about both issues. Sigh…I am so tired of having to fight lame brains, who do not listen to what you tell them… but time will say how hard and how much I have to rattle cages, to get the matter, done.

More soon….
