PostSubject: i hate doctors!   March 1st 2013, 8:29 pm

Yesterday I had to get a CAT scan to make sure I don't have any brain tumors. The doctor doesn't think so, but to cover her butt she sent me for the scan before sending me to another doctor. I'm having vertigo for 4 months, bad but manageable. So I left work early, get to the office only to be told the doctor didn't ask the insurance company for all the tests she ordered. I had one scan, and have to go back next week to do it over again. WTF! They won't tell me the results until all the test are in.

98% of me knows the doctors are covering their butt by having me take the tests, but the 2% of me worries about it. Nothing I can do anyway.
I send all the results to my father-in-law who I believe is a great doctor, he is just a little to far away to go to office visits. He has been asking me when will he see another member of the forum who hasn't been in to see him in a while.

Interesting that they won't release the radiologists' impression. It's not as if that radiologist was waiting on other tests before reading the CT and making an assessment. I'd think you could have a case against them if they delayed notification.

One of my coworkers has been experiencing vertigo. Visited specialists and now awaiting insurance approval for a more expensive image (MRI, CAT?). Someone thought it could be papilledema since his vision was also effected.

I have had the vertigo off and on for about 35 years. I can go 5 years at a time without having it, then when I get a bad cold it comes on and last a week or two, Now I have it since before Christmas. Some days I don't notice it, others I'll look up or down and it hits me. I think if the radiologist saw something bad they would contact the doctor right away.

Stupid question,but can an inner ear problem be the cause?

That's usually the problem, so I went to the Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT) doctor. She looked and sent me for the tests. She wants to send me to a doctor that does therapy buy shaking your head and moving small objects back into place in the ear canal. So she first covers her butt by ruling out I have a tumor in the brain or ear canal.

Barry thinks the EN&T is a good start. He told me not to worry about the CT as she is covering her butt. I got a second CT today and one last week. So far no call from the doctor so I assume it something were found I would get the phone call. I have the disk, but she gets the report.
I also asked Barry about the shots since my red blood cells are way up there and he said not to stop, blood is okay as long as it stays where its at. I had to donate last week to get some out of my body. They were on the fence when they took a sample first as to whether they would accept it or not.

I hope all are doing well!

I saw a loosely related story about hospital superbugs on the rise. In a nutshell, if you don't need to be in the hospital, don't go. The Centers for Disease Control says it may be too late to stop these new deadly superbugs and there's no known antibiotic treatment. Pharmaceutical companies probably won't have a new antibiotic for another 10 years. Apparently it takes along time to develop and test them. I wouldn't want to do clinical work in hospitals or nursing homes.

Quote :
Perhaps the greatest threat from CRE is its ability to share its resistance genes with other bacteria. So although CRE's spread is somewhat limited today, it could potentially share its resistance with far more common bacteria, such as E. coli, Frieden said.

If that happened, common conditions affecting millions of Americans, which are now treated with antibiotics — such as diarrhea, urinary tract infections, respiratory conditions and pneumonia — could become untreatable.

My Dad will be 80, has vertigo. It comes and goes. Not much they can do for it. They had him doing special exercises to help with it. Sometimes its "bad" and other times doesn't happen at all. By "bad" I mean that he loses his balance only certain ways if he gets up out of a chair or something similar.

Mine is the same way, its bad or I don't notice it for a day or two. Getting up at night to take a leak is dangerous, I forget and jump out of bed and right down to the ground while hitting a dresser or two.
