f00bar You aren't close to Ann Arbor? I would imagine they have some pretty good docs for this sort of thing. Though if you ever get shot or end up in the losing end of domestic violence you may find better results in Detroit.

BurtonAvenger Plenty, I just don't give advice on that.

OH,... MY,... GOD!!!! I thought maybe you were making a joke, but after I googled the Cleveland Clinic. I found an article that said we almost got a clinic extension from their hospital right here in my city. (...some Fucking odd MI State law regarding medical fascilities put the Kibosh on it!) maybe it's a sign!

I read a bit about the Clinic, it sounds like they do things a bit like "House" does! (...since we're referencing womanizers & TV doctors.) Looks like they specialize in finding a diagnosis for difficult cases. I will do some more research on it. I had never heard of that clinic before. Thanks for the heads up!!




So, dumb question,.. Is there anything you don't know?

My "GP" is the most incompetent one of the bunch. I only continue to use her for prescription refills, etc. And thats only because shes 5 min. from home. She's the one who missed all those issues I described earlier. Even tho she had past lab work that should have let her diagnose them months or years earlier. I won't even use her for referals. I have in the past and those dr's were quacks too!


-Late edit-
I kno I should find myself a good primary GP. But first, I hate going to the doctor anway, and the chance of finding that really "good doctor" first or second try?? I still have to pay for those office visits to interview them,.. That will be expensive. So,.. I keep putting it off!

that is actually a screen capture enlargement of a small section of a lateral lumbar view. It's not the area that was the focus of the x-rays. I just zoomed in on it to confirm the docs assertion that there was NO old coccyx fracture. Technically I guess, he was correct!

Yeah,.. like I said. This is a very old injury. (....and fortunately, I've had none of those issues over the years!!)

I'm just pissed that all the doctors, looking at all these x-rays over the years, have never mentioned it. Not even in any of the reports from the (mandatory & expensive) radiologists that I have never met but had to pay for looking over the films!

When I combine all this with the other issues I've had with doctors over the years,.. with them missing or ignoring shit I tell them about? I find I have no faith in them whatsoever!!!

This Ortho/spine guy I am seeing on Tues? He better be one FucK of an impressive, competent mother sucker!!!
