Right now? I don't think the McGill has a rating for the combination of pain that I am in: one medicine helps. Request denied.
NUTRITION support: request denied.
Neurologist of 15 years: walked away with no reason.
But so far: my requests for another hospitalist has gone ignored-as has for a GI doctor who will look at say:
That I have had 24+ abdominal surgeries-all were necessary medically-but the complications alone are likely responsible for the current problems as well as the full body spread from a port that was NOT sutured into place resulting in my own guess and what the vascular surgeon refuses to say outright, but all but admitted: but was shocked that one of the hospital's own PCP's. He asked who had denied my port care, and seemed surprised.
I am sorry for her if there are repercussions professionally but as much as a horrible thing as it sounds? I simply pity anyone who cannot have enough foresight to realize that I needed some kind of venous access.
Naturally she was in favor of the mental health thing: how many of YOU are tired of it? If anything: sign for that reason-or that other treatments be made available-but even the area teaching hospital has little to offer besides prescriptions for medicine that makes me sick (the ketamine) and also others that have been very hard on my system.
But watch even just the first video: and if I can, I will post the other-and it's a more detail of just the past few days.
I am asking for nutrition support being initiated before discharge. I am way too exhausted and weak to go home in this condition, I don't think that any medication will work without some intake of protein.
Labwork has not backed it up to the degree they want because early in my disease, or diagnosis-I have since learned that this goes back as early as 1983 possibly even. My first sympathectomy on the right knee I larned was though successful, in terms of pain: I lost motor function to some degree with that alone in June 1994. Another (now deceased) doc suspected this as early as 1989 or 1990.
I don't forsee much treatment for the GI issues being successful without nutrition support.
Second, if I am too sick to get all the way to the bathroom, and have a collapsed hip I guess that the hospitalist, as in 2011 over a fractured tailbone (why the allodynia settled there) and wanted to put me in a LTC facility for that-when after a short time, I was okay.
The slideshows, if time is available should be helpful
With the one medication that would be helpful?
They refused to prescribe it while in this hospital because insurance won't pay for it at home bcause I do not have cancer.
We all know pain with any disease can be just as bad.as any other.
As many signatures as I can get-any help is appreciated.
I always thought humane care applied to animals.
Now in healthcare-people too.
Thanks for as many signautres; please share in groups, friends, whatever it takes. If you suffer pain-RSD, arthritis, etc? Please share this, sign it, send it to friends!!!
My life depends on it. If anything, a HUMAN life does. That would be reason enough for me.
Even if you don't know me, a common thread, is we've all had pain in our lives-whatever the cause.
