Is there no way out of this nightmare?

December 4, 2009

I am usually a very optimistic person. My life slogan is to never give up. Yet, this morning I feel like I have nowhere to go.

I called a doctor who I got recommendation for. After 1/2 hour on the phone I was informed that the doctor can not see me until 90 days after the surgery. Technically, I am under the care of my current surgeon until then. Apparently, it does not really matter that my current surgen can not recall how long post-op it has been, what foot he operated on, or that I fell on my operated foot and still has not been diagnosed.

I am not sure what I can do now.

    If you are in the US, I would immediately get copies of your records from this sorry excuse for a doctor and then file a complaint with the state licensing board. Seriously, the doctor’s behavior is not something to taken lightly, someone’s life could well depend on his grasp of reality. If you’re not in the US, I’m sure there must be a channel for complaints.

    At this point, I would not worry too much about whether you get a recommendation for someone. Call around and find someone who will see you soon, or even go the ER, there’s always an orthopod on call there.

    Good luck and don’t give up.

    I agree with Gerry. If I were you I would go to the ER and tell them you heard a pop (even if you didn’t).
