    I'm almost down to my reg starting weight here. I;m slowly getting the
    hang of things. On another front.........I have to go see a general surgeon who is a specialist on breasts. The pcp states that it c/b a plugged duct, the big c, infection that won't go away i'm on my third course of antibiotics! OR????
    I haven't been paying much attention to this cuz I don't want t wo deal with it really. i'm going to have a male doc look at it which is weird but my husband is coming with me. they write that cancer usually doesn't have pain in the beginning. I have 3 signs of cancer but it sure c/b something else.
    well thanks for listenin

    Aw, Keet.
    OK...well get it checked and deal with it. You can do this because you have to. We are all hoping and praying for this to be something less serious than cancer of course, but no matter what ,know in your heart that we are here for you.

    thanks judy and kim
    its just that whatever it is has become larger so it feels the first doc I went to was disrespectfu il of me and said if I came back after the first antibiotic that didn't work and that I told her I couldn't tolerate...............2 things happened at this appointment.
    1) she said if I came back after having the antibiotics and I wasn't healed then they'd have to refer me out and that person would have to cut it out of me!
    2) the other thing was that she burst into angry words when I told her I couldn't take the clindymyacin and she said jus!!T take it
    Some docs hate me because I have in the past abused pain killers rx'd me. It happened to me and I take full responsibility for it.
    she also examined me n humiliated and shamed me

    anyway its been hurting so I will deal with it on weds at 2:30
    do docs never do wrong? do others ever sin too?

    I feel like i'm in the cargo part of the ship with the aniamals.

    Keet, the fact is that there are many many doctors who abuse drugs themselves, and if it isn't drugs, it's alcohol. Humans have failings, plain and simple.
    This Dr has the failing of being inhumane though. You don't have to put up with bad treatment or being abused like that from a practitioner. Report her to the American Medical Association . No doctor should treat anyone without respect. No PERSON should be inhumane and disrespectful to another person at all.

    Hope this goes well. Listen to your options, then RESEARCH them... only then, make your final decision.

    Yes I will take notes on my phone kim when this doc is talking to me cuz as is often the case with a doc I get nervous and forget.

    I am perishable. and so I do have to live accordingly like you state kim.

    I've been afraid of having cancer tr since I was a little girl. I saw at age 5 what it did to my grandma............ and I've seen my mom and aunts go down. I've just gotta fight these thoughts.

    Thanks Kim for the thoughts. I'm gonna be ok no matter what.
