I think I've trained her. I can't believe this. I'm starting to really think I have the best PCP doctor in the world. I had to run to the store to pick up a few prescriptions My husband said our doctor called to check up on me while I was gone. This was 7:30 in the evening. I can't believe my luck. I know she doesn't take anything for granted with me but lordy, lordy. Rodney said that because of what happened last year she had told him that she wasn't going to take what I say litely any more. First I had a bladder infection and she treated that but it turned out to be a fistula to the bladder. Then I had mouth sores and she treated that but it turned out to be bone-marrow suppression. Both times I ended up in the hospital. None of what happened I blame her at all for. But at least she doesn't think I'm a whiner and she does takes my complaints seriously. I worry that I whine too much but by the time I go to the doctor it's usually because I need to.

Hurrah!!!!! It makes me feel good to hear about these great people. My PCP is super too...when I express a concern, he considers it then gives me an answer but never just dismisses me. I always tell him how great he is just so he does not ever get burned out!
My dentis is super too...when i told him I had to consider an immunomodulator he said to make sure I find out if there are any dental implications for future care and he will schedule anything & bump other patiens before I start the drugs. He has my file noted so well to watch for CD symptoms and he really cares (well his daughter has CD so I am now his resource for caring, but he cares for me too!)
Dx'd '90 (emergency rupture), symptoms ignored long before that, '03 fistulas and bad flagyl reactions, B12 weekly, Pentasa [until I surrender to the bigger meds]
I'm riding on the escalator of life....
