August 16, 2019, 07:23:58 am Lori Bolinger says: Wow Tj, I feel you....one dr. I went to told me I was too ignorant to know my own symptoms to be quiet he would tell me my symptoms and what he would do about it.  My husband ws sitting there and said, no those are not her symptoms...to which the Dr. replied, YOU are too ignorant to know her symptoms be quiet and I will tell you her symptoms and what we are going to do about it....his "corrections" of what was wrong messed me up so bad that even the pharmacist told me not to do the "cure" because it would kill me....it's still one of the chronic problems I am fighting to get help with and without proper help, I will continue to have problems that put me in the hospital....but because of the "your too ignorant to know your own symptoms" dr. no one will take me seriously.

Michael....I am so sorry for all you are going through.  I know 24/7 pain and it is definitely draining.  Unfortunately mine was caused by the Dr.s who refused to listen but that is another story.

May we find strength, comfort, healing, peace as we wait to go home to our Father and King.
August 16, 2019, 12:18:48 am truthjourney says: I've found that there are men doctors who don't take women as seriously as men when it comes to health issues. It's almost like they treat women like they are a different species. For example, I went to the ER once because I was having severe chest pains. The doctor actually asked me if I was pregnant and having heartburn. If I had been a man, that doctor wouldn't have asked me a ridiculous question like that. Men have heartburn too. But since I was a woman, he assumed I was just having heartburn, like I couldn't possibly know the difference between real chest pains and heartburn. After all, I'm just a woman and he apparently didn't think I was very bright if I didn't know the difference. That was both insulting and humiliating to be treated that way. I've met quite a few doctors like that along the way....I finally found a good doctor who listens to me and takes me seriously and doesn't doubt my intelligence and also knows that I'm a human being just like men are and that I'm not a different species who couldn't possibly have real health issues the way that men do. Good doctors are rare.
August 15, 2019, 11:57:48 pm truthjourney says: No Michael, not skin cancer. I had the rarest and most aggressive breast cancer that presents eventually on the skin at a certain stage. It was at that stage that the doctors finally took me seriously. I guess they had to see some evidence that was unmistakable. They would have had to be blind not to see and recognize what it was.
August 15, 2019, 07:25:25 pm MichaelC says: TJ, I also have peripheral neuropathy in both feet from my diabetes.  It burns and makes my feet very numb, but I still feel the pain.  I had to use a wheelchair today when I went to the Pain Institute.  When you get old, things start going.
OK, I am done talking about my problems.  I pray for everyone here on FEF and TF, asking God to keep you all okay and happy.  Sometimes, I pray extra hard for some people when they need it and when I feel their problems.  Okay, chat with you later, hon!
August 15, 2019, 07:17:57 pm MichaelC says: Hi truthjourney!  Wow, I'm very sorry about your radiation and chemo treatments.  You have skin cancer?  I surely will pray for you to get well.  You know, I believe that Jesus will return soon, but God does take His time, so it's hard to say.  From what has happened to me, I know it's not going to be too long, so you don't have to worry about your pain continuing when He comes.  TJ, I had cancer of my prostate and had it removed.  I also had to get radiation for 8 weeks.  It was a bummer.  I didn't get chemo, though, because I refuse to have it done to me.  Too many bad side effects.  I also have diabetes type II and arthritis, severe emphysema, I use an oxygen machine.  I also have pain in my feet and legs.  The Dr. gives me 10 mg. of Oxycodone twice a day.  It's still not enough, but the gov't. has really cracked down on Percocet prescriptions because people abuse it, so those of us who are in pain suffer terribly from it.  

I need another pain pill for 9 am to 3 pm.  Right now, I only get a pain pill from 3 pm until 9 pm and one for 9 pm to 3 am.  I was up until 4:30 last night.  The pain is very bad and even with the 10 mg twice a day, it does not remove all of the pain.  I feel hopeless.  He will probably give me 3 pills a day when I go back to him in a month.  He's really helpful.  I'd best get going, for this is even longer.  Love, Mike!
August 15, 2019, 07:04:05 pm MichaelC says: Lori, you're so thoughtful and kind!  I will pray that you find some relief and solace ASAP.  This is fun on this chat box, but I don't always get to post on it because I'm so busy every day.  Some days, Sat. or Sun., I get some free time to rest or do what I want to, so it's not so bad.  I love you much, but I'm not 'in love' with you, for I know you by your words and beliefs, so I am able to know that you are worth loving more.  I do love everyone, even my enemies, but I don't always like someone's ways.  O, I'm sorry this is so long!  B-bye!
August 15, 2019, 01:52:39 pm truthjourney says: Sorry, I just still feel anger about that. I don't mean to be venting.
August 15, 2019, 01:44:41 pm truthjourney says: I'll never forget this one internal medicine doctor who told me all I needed was to be put on antidepressants and then that would make me feel better. I had cancer and that was what he told me. The doctors said I was being melodramatic thinking that I had cancer. Even putting me on antidepressants. He said, well aren't you depressed? I said, how am I supposed to feel when I'm sick and feeling bad? Am I supposed to be all cheerful and smiling all the time? Stupid doctors!!!
August 15, 2019, 01:34:26 pm truthjourney says: Anyway, I understand the frustration with doctors.That's the reason why it took so long for me to be diagnosed. The doctors wouldn't listen until they could actually see evidence of cancer on the skin surface and by then it was stage 3.
August 15, 2019, 01:21:51 pm truthjourney says: Lori, I had a frustrating oncology visit recently. When I talked about the issues I'm having, first the nurse asked if I was diabetic then the oncology doctor asked if I was diabetic. I am not diabetic and my primary doctor did bloodwork to show that I am not diabetic. So the oncology doctor was trying to find some other explanation for long term chemo effects and radiation treatment. I was so irritated that I called my ride to be picked right after the doctor left the room and told them I have to go, my ride is here. ...I had an appointment with my primary doctor yesterday and I was telling him what happened at the oncology doctor visit. He looked at the bloodwork results and said, you're not diabetic. He said they didn't want to tell me that I was having long term chemo and radiation effects so they tried to find another explanation and tried to say that I was diabetic. But the nurse at oncology did say that chemo will make your teeth fall out. So at least there was that.
August 15, 2019, 01:09:16 pm truthjourney says: Good afternoon.  :)
August 15, 2019, 10:43:57 am Lori Bolinger says: lol Just talked to Brian and his frustration with the Dr is starting to show through as he rethinks what was said.....that didn't take long.
August 15, 2019, 07:24:59 am Lori Bolinger says: follow up Dr. appointment yesterday....I was frustrated, Brian was encouraged....but he is frustrated before we are out of the next appointment....anyone want to place a bet.....lol

August 14, 2019, 07:37:20 pm Bladerunner says: good evening all
August 14, 2019, 09:27:41 am Lori Bolinger says: Good morning....no where close to as good as new but what do you do....?  More fights with the Dr. to get them to "fix" what is wrong instead of what they want to be wrong...in fact, Dr. appointment today.  So tired of Dr. and nonsense and so ready to feel at least semi human again...Michael, praying for you and your pain, know some natural stuff that works pretty well but some pain just doesn't subside.
August 13, 2019, 09:03:04 pm MichaelC says: Lori, I'm glad that you are out now.  I hope that you are good as new!  I have to go to the Pain Dr. on Thursday.
