Hi all I'm finding this rather therapeutic and there's something I've been wanting to get off my chest for very long time. This happened to me it must've been three years ago now.
I had surgery to sever nerves in my spinal cord in the hopes that it would stop some of my pain unfortunately I had a bad reaction because of my fibromyalgia instead of cutting my pain it increased it by 10 fold . I was taken to the hospital in agony after being given shots of that know the lauded and everything else they had not only was I still conscious but I was still in constant pain to the point that I was crying hospital told me there was nothing they could do and sent me home.
I had a doctors appointment the next morning at the hospital the doctor immediately saw me forgot about the appointment and try to get me to go to the OR as I was obviously in agony still my blood pressure was about to explode and cause a stroke do the amount of pain I was then he gave me pain medication and sent to the ER but this time by ambulance. Was given pain medication once again didn't x-ray and sent me home.
Things are about to get much worse I was with my friends what I suddenly lost feeling in my legs and collapsed To the floor my friends immediately took me to the closest hospital a different one from the hospital I have been in before. I was rolled in the back picked up put on a stretcher and left there at some point to Dr. came in and did an Ct I don't remember if they gave me pain medication or not if they did I really don't remember. Here's where I should tell you that I'm actually blind and have a guide dog this will come in handy later. make sure you remember this. At this point to nurse came in to take my guide dog out to go to the bathroom. I was wearing sunglasses that had the lights off do you do retina damage in my eyes. It's asshole doctor walks in and tells me to get the blank up and walk I look at him and tell him I can't walk I can't feel my legs. And which point he indicates that I'm lying and I just want drugs I look straight at him and said of course I'm in agony wouldn't you obviously something is going wrong with the operation I had I'm in hell help me.
He said get the hell out of my hospital but I literally. Unable to walk I was actually willed outside and headed to Walker not joking here. I found out later that he had written a letter in the file that contains this I "Miss Blank was seen at two other hospitals for back pain she was also seen by lblank Dr. After being seen by the doctor and receiving pain medicine she then drove herself "drove herself to our hospital. She admitted to driving to two other hospitals to get medication " when I saw Miss Blank she was sitting in a room with glasses on and the dark no doubt probably due to her drug use I asked her to leave it which point she told me she could not move her legs .
Now the thing to remember about what was just written with these facts number one I blind have been blind for over 10 years at this point that is why I had the dark glasses on and also why was in the dark and I obviously did not drove nowhere. The doctor that I had gone see was actually the one that sent me to the to the ER by ambulance. I was so mad I went directly to a lawyer after going to a lawyer I went directly to each hospital involved in each doctor involved got letters for from all of them stating that this was a current lie that none of this ever happened and that I had had a surgery that unfortunately had severe consequences. I actually wanted to take this that all the way to court for the sole reason of I wanted to walk into court with my guy dog I felt that that was the best thing I could ever do. The fact that he could not tell there was a blind person sitting straight in front of him was unbelievable the second fact that he couldn't tell that this blind person was also unable to move her legs was unbelievable as well how do these people even though this was an obvious lie it's with me months to get in with the hospital where I could change the records that day I was supposed to go in and have them fixed was when I ended up having emergency gallbladder surgery at a separate hospital where I had had another serious incidents like this I almost feel it's a losing task not only did I not end up changing the obviously false paperwork but it cost me $1500 to do it and approve that it was all a lie.
Have any of you had experiences like this what did you do about it how did you handle it . I'm most of you finding problems that are in pain management when you go to the hospital and they simply tell you sorry you're with pain management there's nothing we can do even though pain management sent you there because it's a weekend and there's no thing that they can do either.
