When Doctors Get It Wrong…

1978, doctor says well you have endometriosis and that is why you are in so much pain… He takes my ovaries and tubes and pathology, zero wrong with them… perfectly healthy…

1979, beg doctor to stop the pain in my lower area near my bladder… so we agree, take uterus and cervix out… pathology, zero wrong with the organs and no referral to a urologist….

1980, Military doctors say you got IBS… wrong… adhesions caused by their surgery…

1996, Civilian doctor in Okanogan says you have Gerd… Wrong…

1998, VA in Spokane… doctor does a colonoscopy, finds zero issues, but decides I suffer from IBS Irritable Bowel Syndrome… wrong…

1998, VA in Spokane… doctors says you have FMS Fibromyalgia… Wrong….

1998, VA in Spokane… doctor says you have depression and panic attacks… Wrong…

By 2000 I was taking medication for FMS, IBS, Gerd, Depression and Panic Attacks…

I discontinued all those meds by 2004 or 2005…. Because I knew they were all wrong and the drugs absolutely made my brain feel like it was on an acid trip all the time…

Along with those medications I quit taking Premarin hormone replacement therapy… the stuff turned me into a psycho path… bunch of goofy emojis here….

By the time we got to New Mexico, 2008 I had undergone another bladder surgery and the scheduling department would not let the surgeon set me up to remove the Trans-mesh less than 2 weeks after it was put in… It was left in my body for 13 months and the damage was extensive…

Surgery on Oahu Feb 2018, finally fixed the VA fuck up… Lawsuit settled and awaiting paperwork from the manufacturer of the device… not much money, but it will move us home… I will never be able to lift anything over 20 pounds the rest of my life and if anything happens to my pelvic area, it will mean a full reconstruction… that is how bad the trans-mesh messed up my body and the VA is to blame…

By Feb 2018 I saw a neurologist here on Hawaii for nerve induction tests… my arms were tested at the Little Rock VA in 2005 and we already knew they were impacted, but as she tested my legs, she stuck the needles in my arm… results….

Peripheral neuropathy and Autonomic neuropathy… there is the answer to the Gerd, IBS & FMS….

Dec 26, 2018 I have a MRI and the results show I had a stroke, a bleed on the brain that was old and a possible fistula…

Did you know you can diagnose migraines yourself, without a doctor… huh… always thought, never self diagnose… let the college educated do that… you can disagree, but never be the one to do it yourself if you are not a doctor….and that is what my doctor thinks I have… only one little problem… I know migraines… from family not related to me and friends… and I researched the profile for migraines… I DO NOT FIT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!

When I quit taking all the drugs the VA had me on, I felt better mentally… Why??? Because of the brain injury, all medications have an adverse affect on my brain… they cause depression, nausea, dizziness, balance issues, vision issues and the list goes on…

I quit taking the medications and I am left with exactly what I am dealing with…

A traumatic brain injury that damaged enough of my brain to interfere with my memory abilities and my life… 

When doctors quit listening, patients like myself suffer and I should feel bad about the fax I sent to that office… How about the people in that office realize, don’t read what isn’t there… I never said I was suing the doctor…. I have always said to anyone that “LISTENS”… I am going after the Veterans administration… they gave me so much evidence the lawyer we contacted can not wait to get all the files and start the process!!!

I don’t have to agree with any doctor or person on the fucking planet and the day I have too… get out of my way, because we will have a war and I will win!!!!

All I have ever done, is pushed to get someone to listen to my story about the injuries I had zero proof of, just memories that were like ghosts in the night!!!!

Doctors are so used to being lied too… when they hear the truth, they can’t get their head out of their own ass!!!! So over dealing with people who can’t fix stupid, because to do so… You have to look at the world around you without bias….

And BIAS is all I have dealt with!!!

FYI… I told the doctor before she sent me to the neurologist that I had peripheral neuropathy, got zero acknowledgement out of her either…

When you are dealing with a brick wall, you have two choices… keep talking to it and hope it grows ears… or knock it down and go on with your life…

I am ready to knock it down and be done with health care on this damn island called Hawaii… don’t move here, don’t even think about it… Roosters crowing and no sleep, people thinking it is okay to invade your home with loud music and noise and the Aloha spirit… If it existed… the last time I saw it, when I was sent to Tripler in 1986 on Oahu!!!
