Okay, so this morning was the rheummy. Yesterday was absolutely terrible & this morning was still near impossible too. 3 hours to put pants and shoes on?!
As hard as it was getting there, I'm glad he saw me in the condition I was in.
Got His Attention.
Starting Remicade after the Holidays. In the meantime, taking Humira once a week and then possibly more frequent (ouch). And also adding a sulfasalazine and/or Immuran (depending on what the GI and rheummy agree upon).
We want to hang on to the few WBCs I have...so they wanna be careful.
Have a pain specialist appt Jan.4th.
It's sad but it took a day like yesterday to really tick me off. It was totally unacceptable, and I told him that too. 9 hours to get into the shower? 12 hours to finally make it to the kitchen to eat????? That's really bad.
So the fire under their bums has been lit . Just wish it didn't have to take THIS to do it. But, I guess when you're real young and so many things are wrong with you...maybe they really don't know what to do with ya'? Maybe I'm one of those patients that docs are afraid to touch!
Like my good buddy, he's got end stage renal failure and is really obese...no one wants to do surgery on him because they want nothing to do with it! They're afraid to go near him.
With all these malpractice lawsuits, I'm really surprised doctors do half the things they still do!
What a week.
