So I had to have a follow-up EGD on Friday, for my Barrett's Esophagus. I explained to the doctor about my C3-4 & C7-T1 non-healed discs (due to the procedure going down my throat, & my spine doc told me to make them aware of it to be careful), and the GI doc bluntly started "that doesn't matter to me." Ok 😕 He came into the room (while I was walking up from the anesthesia) to tell us that I have"candida esophagitis" & "gastritis", with the candida all in my GI track, and they'd be calling in a RX for me. Once I was totally awake I asked the nurse if the doctor could come back in so I could ask him a specific question, of whether the candida (yeast) was because of my Sjogrens (my rheumatologist said Sjogrens causes it). The doc stepped into the doorway and said snappishly, "We will discuss this at your follow up, because you won't remember any of what is said today," and turned and walked out. My hubby was like, "that was beyond rude and you are totally awake!". He's so ticked off he doesn't plan to see him for his EGD (he has Barrett's Esophagus too), but plans to see a new doc.
Funny that I remembered it completely! 🤔. Oh, and the Rx never got sent in until after my 2nd phone call yesterday, not to mention we left a voice message for him on Friday at 2:30 (& still in office; some docs close on Friday). I'll be changing doctors too after my follow up, where I intend to let him know he was rude and his staff is incompetent. 😡. He needs to retire!!
Thanks for letting me get rid of some frustration! Everyone have a blessed day, with love hugs & prayers! 🙂❤🙏🌼
