Discussions that mention tylenol

General Health board


Kari, I slept after yesterdays MRI until 2:00 pm today, and I have 4 phone calls from the neurologicals doctors nurse, stating if I didn't return immediately he would drop me.....I just called the nurse with my tail between my legs, and she said "he is busy.".....come next Tuesday ! And oh by the way he says he doesn't need your MRI, he thinks your left leg drop is not caused by a disc problem ????? He hasn't even seen the MRI, he saw only some Xrays ? And he made a decision without the MRI why I have left leg drop !

I said well what does he think is causing it, since my BACK HURTS, AND THEN MY LEFT FOOT GOES DEAD, AND IN A BRACE !!!! PAIN IN BACK, ITS GOT TO BE SOMETHING.........she said he said its "probably a little arthitis" ..........

I said then WHY SHOULD I COME BACK WITH THE RESULTS OF A $3500 TEST I just paid the Insuance Compnay $1700 to be in force one more month to get this test !!! With Katrina food money, if he has already made up his mind what it is not ! I need to know what it is ????? My back pain , and dead foot are real ???? She said you will just have to wait now until next Tuesday
to find that out won't you..........so the receiptionist/nurse....had worse attitude than him ?

I SAID WHAT SHOULD I TAKE FOR THIS PAIN, SHE ASKED WHAT WERE YOU TAKING BEFORE YOU GOT TO US ? I SAID TYLENOL ? I DIDN'T HAVE A BACK DOCTOR............SHE SAID WELL TAKE THAT.......WE TRIED TO CALL YOU ALL MORNING AND YOU DIDN'T ANSWER, SO JUST GO WITH THE TYLENOL YOU HAVE...........and I just started crying and put my left leg drop brace on and am stunned !

I will owe him a $1000 deductible, the "b" person, since we cant curse, the x-rays, and an MRI he hasn't seen.....and he knows what it IS probably am not....

Your right Kari, I wish I could look at the films and tell what I see myself, I wish you could look at them.......I only have one other doctor on my plan for a neurological surgeon, can't an orthopedist, read these films......? The nurse told me actually the film belong to the MRI place, and the nurse said if I come in, they belong to the doctor and he has to return them, is this true........man when you are a single mom, it is amazing how bad you get treated from a doctor with an attitude ! I am scared to go back ..........

Kari, did you only go to a neurological surgeon ? Because unless it seems to horrible, he said "awwhh, you probably have a little arthritis", and that is after pulling me out of the MRI machine, he was disgusted I couldn't fit in....

I just cant go off my hospital plan ? and have one more left, and you know how they stick together ? I would have to write a letter out of courtesty a doctor told me, before he would take me ! Should I switch to an orthopedic ?
Where I have more choices !!!!! Why take an MRI, if he already thinks my left leg drop is from just a little arthritis ?
