oh my gosh! you know thats funny you mentioned that. i was at a different forum where it was drs talking about
patients (i wish i had the site, cause everyone on here would flip they would be so ticked off) anyhow, this dr was talking about
this girl who had "kidney stones" all the time. she said it was her first time working the er, but the others knew her, heres what ticked me off- she had all the symptoms- even the high white blood cell count- to confirm kidney stones. the girl told her that she was clausterphobic about
the cat scan & needed something to calm her down (which the dr denied & says the patient screamed the whole time in the cat scan). anyhow there wasn't a good picture so she give her a shot of morphine & some phenergan. (the girl was requesting demeral)(sp). well she said the girl started screaming about
how she wasn't even listening & none of the drs ever listen.....it really ticked me off at the dr. i was misdiagnosed 3 times incorrectly when i had kidney stones. so i know it happens.
i WISH i still had the website so you could all go on there & see what drs REALLY say! the just bash people with pain issues. the cold shoulder you get at the hospital dosen't stop there. i would be so angry if i ever found out a dr i saw talked about
me to other people.
....... just thought i would add to your story. :P
