Pain in Left Flank

On April 4th before I was sent home from the hospital I was given a CT scan. The CT scan was of my chest as I had been in the hospital for pneumonia.

I have incontenance and wear pads. The next day I started getting like a diaper rash. Not bad but noticeable. The hospital gave me a script for Levofloxacin for 7 days. The last pill I took on April 11th. That morning I sent to from the Health Dept so I could get a primary doctor. They told me I would have to come back on Tues. the 17th. I put off going to the ER thinking I would see a doctor on the 17th.

Yesterday I went to the clinic, but was told it was only a screening process and I would not see a REAL doctor until May 9th. I left there in tears and headed to the ER. Got there at 12:30pm. Had a Urine test and was told I had no kidney problems, that I must have strained my back. I KNOW the difference between an infection pain and a strained pain. I have an infection pain! The doctor ordered a chest x-ray. I asked him what that had to do with FLANK pain, and I was told "the lung ends lower than you think"! Sorry, but I don't think it ends anywhere NEAR the kidney area!

Anyway, the reason I KNOW this is an infection is because on the left side of my tongue there is a sore place, also in the middle of my Left Arm Pit, and just below my left breast and of course the dull achy pain in the left flank area. I could NOT get the doctor to understand. He sent me home with a script for Loritabs which I will only throw away. I do not do Narcotics!

I tried to ask the doctor about my fallen bladder, but the nurse intervened and SHE asked him a question that I should have been asking. She came back with my paper work and said the doctor told her that what I was asking could not happen. Funny, but I DO remember reading somewhere that when the bladder falls and falls to far down it puts a strain on the kidneys. I am at a loss as to what to do. Why is that doctors ignore what you say to them. Sometimes I just want to make up something to tell them and see what happens. LOL I have had this body for 58 years and I know it very well. I KNOW when there is an infection and I have one right now. Not sure what to do. Guess I will just wait until I get so bad they will HAVE to do something! If this is any indication as to what Obamacare will be like WE ARE in a World Of Crap!
