I am right there with ya Binky. Doctors are great at fixing broken bones and sewing up cuts but they don't cure anything. If you have a ruptured spleen and they take it out they haven't cured you because your spleen is gone. They can prescribe all manner of things to mask an issue. Like high blood pressure. Here take this pill every day and you'll be fine but if you weren't able to get the pills you are right back where you started. Most of the people in my family that had cancer died from the treatment. Chemo is poison plain and simple. Science is great but science ain't science if you are not allowed to question it.
Yes I agree 100%. I have not been able to lay down or barely sit down for five years now due an undiagnosed tailbone area pain. Do I not have the right to a diagnosis? I have zero faith left in our medical system and government. And now we have the Philips Cpap machine recall that states………
. The FDA gave the recall a Class I designation, the most serious type. The classification means there’s a reasonable probability that use of a recalled product “will cause serious adverse health consequences or death.”

Seriously? I might as well start digging my grave. And I am suppose to put my faith in these people telling me the vaccine is safe? They are worried about covid killing me?

Seems we were in a better place before IH took over. I know one too many people that got misdiagnosed or no diagnosis at all and died.
Nope, not allowed to question science. Not allowed to even ask a question if it might deter a person from getting this vaccine. It’s forbidden. Look what happened to Dr Hoffe from Lytton. What a shame. Just for expressing concern.
Now a neurosurgeon says I have a very rare AVM in my spine and wants to do a risky surgery. No thanks. He showed me my MRI and said “ see the tangle”? I said no actually I don’t. He said well trust me it’s there. Really?
I feel I am becoming so cynical these days but I don’t trust many. Nobody in authority anyway.
Sad days. If not for my faith I’m scared to think where I might be.
So you do have a diagnosis. A neurosurgeon with xray in hand is telling you what is going on and that surgery could treat this, but you (with all your years of medical education and experience) know better.
This is the harm that comes from not believing the science. Your faith isn't going to cure this.
Why consult an expert, and then reject their diagnosis? You have more expertise than they do? Oh, yeah, because it's your body, you know better, lol.

I hope that people like that register a "Do No Resuscitate" order with their GP, and sign their donor card.

He told me it was nothing to do with my tailbone pain and it was highly unlikely it would fix it. I asked him what could happen if I tuned it down, he said you you would continue to have tingling and numbness in your legs and worse urinary problems. Well guess what? I don’t have any of those problems now. Was he mixing me up with another patient?
And he totally dismissed the fact that I couldn’t see the tangle myself on the x Ray, saying “ well trust me, it’s there”.
No can do. And what surgeon calls and harasses a person every second day about getting surgery. He told me it wasn’t urgent by no means.
The governments have already sealed my fate regarding the C Pap recall. Saying it’s not a maybe but pretty much a sure thing that these millions Of users WILL be affected, not might be.
I have seen screw up after screw up with doctors.
So no, I did not get a diagnosis at all.
Yes my faith will get me through this.
And I still can’t believe how outright mean people are on this forum. And you know what? I blame the government on that too. They have caused this division and hatred.
It will all be exposed one day.
But tell me, could you not have said what you said in a kinder way?
I really think a person could post something kind and happy on this forum and they would still get attacked.

I agree. Surgery is always last resort, if even then. But some people say I should trust him and all medical professionals [icon_lol2.gif] [icon_lol2.gif] [icon_lol2.gif] he couldn’t even show me what was wrong on the MRI. He didn’t give me time to even look. And then he says it would do nothing to help my tailbone pain anyway. A risky spine surgery, a five day hospital stay, and no chance of it helping my issue? Why I ask? Why would I do that?

One has to weigh the pros and cons of any surgery - many have success stories. Steve Kerr suffered a rare complication after his so of course he wouldn't have gone through it if he had known. A ruptured disc is only one cause of back pain and many causes can be alleviated by lifestyle changes and possibly medication. Sitting on a couch watching hours of TV or sitting in front of a computer screen will never help to improve one's health.

I can't understand why people with free healthcare, access to doctors, specialists, the best diagnostic equipment, hospitals, drugs, therapy, etc., don't take advantage of it and simply choose to complain about it. But I guess that's just being mean to the entitled of this world who don't give a rat's :cuss: about those who live in complete poverty and have no hope of getting anything near what we have available. Sorry if I offend anyone, just being blunt and getting directly to the point.

So a fully qualified neurologist has offered you a way to avoid tingling and numbness in your legs, and urinary problems, but you are not interested. Great, because that leaves a bed and OR available for someone else who really does want treatment. Doctors can only offer their best advice and hope to help people, there are many others I'm sure who will appreciate the expertise of this doctor. After you do develop these symptoms, it is often too late to reverse the effects. I hope at that point you won't still be complaining about the shortcomings of your doctor.

I repeat, I DO NOT have tingling or numbness in my legs, NOR do I have urinary problems! If something isn’t broke, don’t have a risky surgery to fix it. Surgery is to fix something that’s wrong or broken. He said it would not fix me. Case closed.
It is a very very rare problem. Again I was going to be used as a Guinea pig. An experiment. No doctor in this country has performed it before. I can’t think of any fool that would say yes to this when the surgeon basically says I wouldn’t have much to gain. Seriously?

I posted that I'd looked at the Google reviews of that doctor who refused to treat the injured unvaccinated child in Enderby.
He has AWFUL Google reviews from before the incident, just terrible.
The very same poster said 'none of those people had even spoken to the doctor'.
Totally false.
I tried to respond but the thread had been closed.
