so i went to american laser center today for a consult about this issue with my stomach on the sides of my scars.
I thought i would get to meet with a dr or at least a nurse. Instead i met some girl who knew basically nothing.
I had filled out my paper, and you know it asks do you have or have you ever had certain problems.
So i checked the autoimmune box, and put UC. And i put that the areas i was interested in having work were my stomach and my arms.
She walks in the room and says, "i talked to the nurse and because of your ulcetlivitis (thats the best way i can spell what she said) you cant have anything done to your abdomen."
I said, but i dont have that anymore, i had also written that i had had surgery.
So she goes and calls the nurse again, and she tells the nurse and comes back and tells me that the nurse told her that it even thought the ulcetlivitis was gone, it could come back and so i couldnt have it done.
And i said, no it really cant come back. And she says, well the nurse says it can. And i said, no i dont have a colon, it cant come back! and i ask if i can just talk to the nurse.
And so she gets the phone and brings it in and is telling the nurse that i said it couldnt come back and the nurse is saying, yes it can, the woman tells her i dont have a colon, and then the nurse understands what she is saying, finally. And tells her i still cant have it because of "protocol" and i said, what does that mean?
And she says, thats the protocol that the doctor set up!
and i said, ok and i left!
I had had no intention of letting these people do it in the first place, its like a chain, but they do free consultations, and i thought i would get a price to go off of.
UC for 8 years, before finally kicking its butt and having a permanent ileostomy April 17 2007!
-I have gone to find myself, if i get back before i return, keep me here-
