Re: All In All Not a Good Weekend

@lmtep 

Definitely not a good weekend!   Am glad you sought treatment and have medication to help you start feeling better.   Doc in a Box setups are great for quick attention needs, but I hope you will contact your doctors office very soon for follow up.  I absolutely would not give it 3-4 weeks, unless your regular provider agrees with that once he has seen you.    

 

I am very glad your daughter is okay after such a scary accident!   I do hope she was checked out medically afterwards.   My brother walked away from a serious accident like this as a teenager, then found out 50 years later that he actually broke 2 vertebrae in his neck.   Trucks can be fixed, or replaced, which is why we carry insurance in the first place.  

Best wishes to you.

@lmtep 

 

Been there with different types of pneumonia and kidneys, in the same time frame. You "may have pneumonia"?  No way I would take that for an answer. What exactly did they do to come up with you "may have"? 

 

CAT Scan/Ultrasound?  "Something on your lung/it could be cancer"? What kind of doctors were there at this place? Throw out the word cancer with "could be", and then give you antibiotics and then say "wait 3 or 4 weeks"?

 

Did they even give you a Spirometer? They do that with about even a slight chance of a build up in the lungs. I was in the hospital a little over a week ago with a cracked rib, which in turn, punctured my lung. They saw all that on an Xray. 1 of the first things they gave me was a Spirometer, of which I now have a half dozen.

 

Me? I would be seeing a Respiratory and/or a Pulmonologist. If you are satisfied?

Re: All In All Not a Good Weekend

All they did was an X-ray, twice.  Didn't sleep all night.  Felt like I had really bad indigestion. It hurt all day.  Could not swallow.  Called my regular physician and explained to the office person who relayed into to doctor.  He could not see me today so I have an appt tomorrow.  Could not eat or drink a thing all day.  I am in such discomfort.  Smiley Sad

Glad to hear you have an appointment to see your doctor today. I am sure you will get a more thorough exam and possibly reference(s) to a specialty doctor(s) if necessary. 

 

Best wishes to you,

Please, as others have said, go to your personal physician ASAP.

 

In the hospital that I worked in Urgent Care was called "Doc in a box"   Good for a splinter but not much else.

 

Don't leave something potentially serious to their diagnosis and recommendation!
