Ortho docs have no empathy at all. Just recently went to one for a long bone pain I had in my right thigh. He reached out and grabbed my thigh and proceeded to mock me for no muscle mass. I am 81 and have had rheumatoid for 17 years, not to mention a broken hip on the same side.
He then told me pain was all in my head and I should get an exercise bike and use it every day. He was as sarcastic as hell. I wanted to smack him right in the face. Instead I said to my daughter, “let’s go” and he scurried out of the exam room ahead of us like a scared squirrel and ran down the hallway.
When I sent the check I wrote “Horrible doctor [name]” in the notes section, not that I think they would ever see it or care if they did. Formerly Ford1224 We must always take sides.

Haven't seen a post from you in awhile. Wondering how you are and sending you an hello with a big smile. You are missed.
Maybe I am mistaken and you have posted and I missed it.
I am happy to hear from you. I am fine, pretty much confined to my bed, other than seeing a lot of doctors and having a lot of labs and tests.
I will admit I am posting only occasionally on this forum these days, as the news has my attention . . . That which we cannot comment on here. I am concerned for my children and grandchildren and the young all over the world really. I have lived a long time and have never seen this country in so much peril. So I have been active outside of the Q forum.
I do come back here to check at least once a day and recently responded to a poster who had a bad experience with her doctor. My post was taken at face value by most and critically by others. Although I am used to that after all these years, it does get old.
I am never nasty to anyone here, but have been on the receiving end for my opinions. I very very seldom respond to those who are always trying to analyze me when they don’t know me at all.
Thankfully, I still have many friends in this forum, and I am always grateful for that. I will answer them separately here. You are one of them.

She @LilacTree posted yesterday on a thread called "Doctor laughed out loud". She also posted to me in 1 of my posts late last week.
You have always let me be me. I feel we have a special cyber friendship. You are one of the bravest people here, You love life and that is why you continue to thrive under the most serious of circumstances. I only wish I could be as upbeat and positive as you are, John. As always ~Ford
