Well, I went back to the dentist from hell only to find he was fired from the place, imagine that. I was there to get the other crown on the other side put on. They had an older guy there filling in and I got to talking to him about
the other side being a problem and not able to hold a crown according to the other dentist. He went and got the office manager that was there over all of the clinics. Boy, did I give her an ear full. By the time I got done with her I had her sitting for nearly an hour. I left not one rock unturned either. I told her I suspected this palce to be nothing but a scam from what I could tell. The old dentist had the girl take a xray of the other crown and sure enough it is not seating correctly. As it turned out the crown he was going to put in was the wrong color, not even a close match!! So that was the second time for that crown to go back. I was so tired that day I did not want anything further done so I left. I go in tomorrow and he will take that crown off and take a look underneath to see what he thinks. I said I felt they owed me a new crown because that one never fit right to begin with.
I saw my 2nd dermatologist Friday and he was just as the other one said the guru of psoriasis. He says it appears I have two different types going on. He uses Humira quite frequently for his patients so we are are going to see how I do with it, since I just started back on it. He also uses alot of Vitamin A so, he gave me 2 samples of different types to try and see if my ins will cover each because he says its really expensive. There is also a pill he wants to start me on called Soriatane but needs to see my labs that was done on checking my liver from being on Imuran. He will get those from my rheumy. This pill is a maintenance type of drug that will help prevent further breakouts and help clear it up. Thats about all for now. Oh, he did look at my legs and squeezed the bottoms of them to which I drew back. He said I do hope you are seeking medical care for your legs, you have a real issue with blood flow in them all the blood is pooling in the bottom of your legs and not able to pump back up. I said yes, got someone looking after those too. I was pleased with how the appt went although I had a hard tme getting an appt. The other dermtologist had to call him personally before he would agree to see me. Some crap about only seeing people on Medicare that are 65 and over !!! I think they call that discrimination where I come from!!
