I WANT TO ACTUALLY TAKE MY CONCERNS TO THIS FORUM.
As I stated in this topic, I have been having issues with my doctor with them giving me the care that I need with this VNS and their lack of compassion and medical duty. This is a personal reference for me and anyone is welcome to add any comment. I really feel that I need to do this on a forum that I trust.
Elisha~ I am not sure how to go about attaching previous references made to this VNS issue but I would love to have them posted on here.
I will start with this:
April 20, 2007~ VNS turned off in doctors office. I expressed that I did ask for it to be turned off in anger because of the treatment by the office I felt I was getting, I asked to turn it down a little because I was afraid of becoming severely depressed again. I was told no that right now it would be turned off because of the way I was handling things in my life and doc felt it was an added stress for me. Blood work was done in regards to my amphetamine level.
May 12, 2007~Received a call from Laura from docs office stating that the results were negative for this drug, I questioned what do I do now, "I dont know he just wanted you to have the results" No concern or questions asked about I was doing off the VNS.
May 16, 2007~ Called office and left a message for Laura at 8:30am. The message was left in an urgent voice(non aggressive) asking to ask the doc to let me come in to have my VNS reactivated because I was not doing well and that the doc that he referred me to has denied me treatment because of my financial situation. Concerned with having no care and wanting to come in to have my implant turned on. I asked to please call back ASAP. As of 4:30pm the office is closed and no phone call was returned on this day.
May 17, 2007~11:00am and still have not received phone call from the office regarding my concerns and request. I will place another call after I arrive back home from doing necessary errands. It is my hope that I will get a phone call while out. In fact, I am going to call as soon as I get off here and leave a message (because you never get a human voice when you call) and leave my trac phone number who I never give to anyone but people that can reach me on only an emergency basis. With this number they have no excuse to say they could not reach me.
