Good Morning! I hope this finds you in good spirits today. I know that you are hurting so bad, but please know that we all love and care about you and I would like to go with you down to your docs office and give him a piece of my mind too. How dare he say that you are not in pain and that he won't medicate you correctly. I've had doctors like that in my past and I used to go home and just sob. I really believe that doctors like that must have no heart and are so anal retentive that they cannot see anything but their own nose. I hope you'll let me know what happens today after your husband gets ahold of him. I am with you in spirit. Know that you are not alone in this fight and may god bless you with comfort today.

YOU GOT THAT RIGHT. I'M GOING THROUGH THAT RIGHT NOW AS WE SPEAK WITH MY PCP. I HAVE WRITTEN HIM A LETTER GIVING HIM THE WEBSITE & ADVISED HIM THAT I AM IN PAIN & WITHIN MY RIGHT TO BE PROPERLY MEDICATED AS SUCH. WHEN I CALLED MY HEALTH PLAN TO VERIFY THAT THEY WOULD PAY FOR MY PAIN MEDS I CALLED MY PCP OFFICE BACK & ADVISED THEM OF THIS THE RECEPTIONIST SAID THAT I WAS USING THE PAIN MEDS & QUESTIONED IF I WAS JUST USING THEM OR DID I HAVE PAIN. WELL DUH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 I FELT LIKE SAYING NO I'M SELLING THEM ON THE STREETS OF MY LITTLE HOMETOWN OF 1,000. IF NO RESPONSE FROM THEM BY MID AFTERNOON TOMORROW, THEY WILL BE GETTING A CALL FROM MY HUSBAND & BOY WILL THEY BE SORRY AS ALL I DID ALL WEEKEND WAS SLEEP FORM THE PAIN TODAY.
AN UPDATE TODAY FRO THE ER. THEY MADE ME COMFY & DID A CAT SCAN WHICH OF COURSE CAM OUT NORMAL, TILL I GOT HOME & HAD A VOICE MAIL FROM THE ER DOC SAYING THE RADIOLOGIST FOUND CHANGES IN MY PANCREASE (NOT SURE OF THE SPELLING) FROM THE LAS6T CAT SCAN I HAD LESS THAT 2 YEARS AGO, SO I HAVE OT GO FOR ANOTHER ONE. WHEN I CALLED MY PCP OFFICE (SOON TO BE EX-PC) SHE SAID OK & CALLED ME BACK A LITTLE WHILE LATER STATING WHAT DIFFERENCE IN THE NEXT CAT SCAN COMPARED TO THE PREVIOUS ON. I ADVISED HER THAT THE ONE THAT WAS JUST DONE WAS OF THE WHOLE ABDOMEN & THIS ONE WILL BE OF JUST THE PANCREAS DUH!!!!!!!!!! WELL SORRY TO GO ON & ON & ON LOL BUT NEEDED TO GET IT OFF MY CHEST AS I KNOW THE PANCREASE CAN BE A MAJOR PROBLEM WITH NO CURE. PLEASE SAY A PRAYER FOR ME ON THIS NEW PROBLEM & HOPEFULLY THE SURGERY WILL BE A SUCCESS.
HUGS-PRAYERS & PAIN FREE MOMENTS. THANK GOD FOR MY EXTENDED FAMILY WITHOUT YOU I HAVE NO IDEA WHERE I WOULD BE TODAY.
