I have a serious problem. My dr. had two patients start dr. shopping and has decided it is too big of a pain in his butt to continue prescribing, even though I have gotten MRIs and Xrays to prove my problems. I have over a half a dozen herniated discs in my low back, along with degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, scoliosis and arthritis in my facet joints. I am currently on5 30mg oxycodone a day for breakthrough and 60mg of methadone for my long lasting meds. I REALLY need a doctor in the Denver, CO area who will not judge me because of my age, thinking I'm just some drug seeker as I TRULY need my meds to function. I am even being placed on disability until I can get my back healed because if something doesn't change I will be in big time pain for the rest of my life. If ANYONE knows of a good doctor that prescribes strong meds willingly in the Denver area please email me and let me know. I am in desperate need of help as I am going to be SCREWED if I cannot find a good doctor. SOMEONE please help me with a doctor!!!!!

Wendy how are you doing? I'm hoping you are still in the hospital and someone is working on getting your Medicaid approval for you.

Wendy or Tom
What's going on? Did the social worker get anything started for you? What did they say you should do to control the pain?

I honestly don't know for sure, but I would think 10 days is a long time for meds to stay in your body...

Thanks Guys! Wendy, they r right! Request to c the nurse manager or patient advocate! My husband was in a few weeks ago, they had in a hallway bed! He fell getting into bed, one nurse said, "he's more than capable of getting himself up and he isn't WORTH hurting your back over"! Now multiple nurses were within feet of us! He proceeded to have a seizure! I asked four nurses to help! The last one finally helped me so he didn't fall out of bed! The doc came over the last nurse, who was very kind was reporting to the doc that he started seizing about a minute ago! I quickly told them NO!!! He's been seizing for well over 6-7 minutes and that I had asked for help from (pointing to the nurses) this nurse, this nurse, this nurse and finally this nurse helped me! They quickly put him in a room where he continued to seize, some so violent it took six of us to hold him in the bed! The doc asked for him to b stripped down to examine him! He was there about four hours! He never during this time regained consciousness, never post-ictal! Just did these strange repetitive spastic movements! About four hours later he awoke! Confused and such! The doc came in, gave me reports of the testing, not any indication of this but within minutes a nurse came in and discharged him! With instructions to c a neurologist! The doc never examined him! Nothing!

The next day, he was worse, took him to the same hospital! The triage nurse said "u were just here last night, all your testing was negative, exactly what do u expect us to do for u?" I walked him out, put him in the car, went to a different hospital and they were awesome! Besides the seizures, he had poor to no vision in his left eye! He had a TIA and a retinal hemorrhage with a retinal tear, had a eye md see him within hours! They couldn't believe they had discharged him with a Bp of 209/112! He spent a week at the hospital! I wrote the CEO of the hospital but haven't heard back! This is the same hospital that five years ago the nurse threw away my ekg's that showed my prolonged qt wave syndrome, the number one reason for folks over 40 to die of when they don't know why they died! Had the doc seen it, I could have skipped 23 minutes of CPR and pacemaker and could have been treated medically! After I was discharged I received a phone call from the hospital saying they wanted to settle with me since the ekg's was misplaced, they sent me to cat scan without a nurse and didn't have a monitor in the er or portable that worked as well as a potassium of less than two! The staff was pissed they had to do my exam because they just got their food from Arby's! An aide asked if I needed help to get on the table and the staff person told her that I didn't need any help! I remember rudely being told to hold my arm up for the exam and that's the last I remember! I fixed them! Sometime while in the scanner I arrested! They aren't sure how long I was down but from when they pulled me out until the code was ended was 23 minutes! I was put in a coma and hypothermia and lots of rehab, I'm doing ok still memory issues but compared to what it could have been, a blessing! I kept getting calls about settling with me! A few days before my statues of limitations was to b over, I got a call from their insurance folks who said that there wasn't enough documentation for a case!

This was after the ceo had already approved a number with me! Within the last year I found out that the documentation wasn't there because they had multiple charts on me because I got married! Pretty funny when your patient is is your ssn! Just was an easy way to get out of paying me! My health insurance went from about two hundred a month to $1300! I won't step inside that place again! The er nurses r the worst group I've ever seen! U r lucky if u get an outside float pool nurse as they do have brains! But because of my pacer, my teeth extractions have to b done in a hospital setting! No dentists have hospital privileges! It's taken me this long to get this set up only to have the doc quit! It's been a nightmare! Five years of infected teeth, pain and all because they couldn't intubate me during my arrest! U would think they would at least pay to fix what they broke! Hopefully, we r finally on the right road, got my port in, got a call from the hospital. My cultures came back, infected, so I have to c the doc tomorrow or Tuesday to schedule the surgery! Then the final step of replacing my pacer, they have to b replaced every five years! All this to "get well"? Funniest thing is since starting at CPR I've felt the best I've felt since my initial injury from a chiropractor 22 years ago! Bottom line Wendy! U r far too important! Call the hospital get in touch with a manager, patient advocate, case manager, head doc of that area or ceo if needed! Don't stop until YOU feel u have gotten what u need! These hospitals r like urgent care anymore, scream, kick, carry on until u get the answers u need! If u need help, as u know, I am a health care practioner, I'll help u with anything u need and can get u to where u need! I'll help anyway u need! I have a big mouth and know how to use it! Take care my friend, I'm here for u or anyone else who needs help! Not sure why things r going through so slow but I do check here at least once a day!

I don't understand how they can send her home?!! She's fallen several times in the last few days... And if she's sedated for pain?? Give me a break!!!! Please request a hospital patient advocate RIGHT NOW. This would be someone on YOUR side. This is crazy.

Tom thank you for the update all my prayers to Wendy. I wish you were able to keep her in the hospital and let them deal with getting the needed shunt. They can work thru the Medicaid bureaucracy a lot faster than you can on your own.
