AMEN AMEN AMEN!!!!! I still look to this place as a refuge from the world.
I look forward to checking my mail to see what is going on and possibly
learn something. I have learned and continue to learn more everyday. The
"brick wall" you refer to is driving me insane! I just received a fax of 25
pages of chart notes most of which where cover pages and insurance requests.
(A LARGE WASTE). Nothing really I needed to take to pain mgmt in the
morning. So I go unprepared, as it is too late to get anything else before
time to go. As I have stated on previous forums: I have been "ping-ponged"
between the gyn who done the lysis on me in Aug this year and the GI I have
been seeing. When I spoke with the gyn"s nurse (very rarely do EVER speak
with the doctor) they would give me the runaround and put it off on the GI.
The GI would call the doctor and be told something else. Now I have it on
BLACK AND WHITE that the GI is telling me the truth and the GYN and his
nurse are telling (at least my chart) different from what they say. I was
comfortable with the gyn I was seeing until, I seen what they actually had
to say about me. After I get home from pain mgmt., the first thing (if I'm
able) is to find another gyn or at least a surgeon who can/will take care of
this problem once and for all!!! I will wait for the intergel, but he
certainly isn't he ONLY doctor who will be using it after it's release. BOY
did that feel good. Thanks for the VENT. I didn't mean to run on, but my
blood pressure is high enough from the pain. I sure don't need a doctor to
make it higher!!!! You all have been an insipration to me to keep going
on. Keep up the good work and keep what need and let the rest go.
