Response to SparkCoach challenge--Blogs Don't Always Have to be Positive

Wednesday, June 05, 2013

I had surgery in October and November of 2012 on both calves. I had to have 3 pints of blood in March of this year. Now, I am told today I have to have surgery on my left thigh because of blockage. This was not diagnosed in October or November.

The sad thing is I don't know if I should continue to trust my physicians because they are handling me with kid gloves. I believe this is because they think I am going to sue for failure to diagnose and undue and unnecessary pain. When there is blockages, they are always going to find different areas as other areas are corrected. I think all of my physicians and surgeons are great. As a prior medical malpractice underwriter, I recognize the actions where the physician is trying to protect themselves.

What has been your experiences?

    If you're interested in alternative viewpoint, check out my pick for #1 book to read on my page. Jon Barron has pretty good coverage on major diseases and health issues. Good luck.

    You could have developed this problem separately. I would not jump to the conclusion that they are related.

    I'm sure with clots they want to be extra careful. It seems like they want to do everything or nothing doesn't it?! Hope they can get you taken care of-I can imagine you are tired of the surgeries.

    Bettie,
I think you are right. Dr's do their best. Unfortunately, sometimes things like your clots come back. I hope it all turns out well for you. Good luck & keep us informed. Maybe they are 'handling you with kid gloves' because they understand you are in fragile health until they get these clots fixed. If you need anything please reach out.
Stay blessed,
