- Q: Ok, although I posted once before for this specific topic, I find that I must post again. I appreciated the advice that I received, to go the emergency room. Despite my lack of health insurance, I did that, and they wouldn’t even prescribe me a steroid as simple as prednisone – after begging and giving them several samples of nothing but blood and liquid, they gave me 30 days of Sulfasalizine and Folic Acid to go with it. This would typically be ideal, but it didn’t calm down anything.Now, to be honest, I am on my laptop and writing from my anchor, the bathroom. I am out of here ten minutes tops, and in here for another twenty. Most times, I am not doing anything but plain bleeding into the toilet, and trust me – I’m a female who thinks farts are a riot and poop jokes are even funnier, but this is actually humiliating to have to ask.HELP! I originally mentioned that I have lost so much weight my hipbones were disgustingly sticking out – well, now it’s getting even worse. My boyfriend doesn’t even like to touch me, and says I look anorexic. “Eewwww, gross…” yeah, that’s something you want to hear when all you want is a reassuring hug…So, back to the whole hospital bit – when I went in there to the ER, they took my blood and told me I am extremely Anemic (I could have guessed that). They said I needed to be admitted immediately, and then when the billing person came in to ask me about insurance and all that, and found out that I have none – it was all they could do to get me out of there. Nice, right? I love American health systems (NOT)… and the people at PSU SHAC are also not helpful, because they don’t “deal with this type of stuff” and they refer me out into the community, whose patient rosters all are full, from the calls I have made.Changing courses again – I resorted to buying Prednisone off of a friend. This is illegal, and I don’t give a crap at this point. I was desperate, and I just did it earlier tonight. I WANT TO STOP BLEEDING!!! Other things I tried were starting a raw food diet (although I rarely eat anything at all because I am scared to – every time I do, I cramp 5 minutes later and don’t stop bleeding for 20), aloe water, and acidophilus pills. I am starting to get headaches, blurred vision, and I am out of breath after 5 steps. I count twice in the past week I have fainted while in the bathroom, actually, and had to have my boyfriend, who is scared spitless at this point, carry me into the bedroom.I am still in the bathroom, still writing… I’m desperate. I’m scared. I’ve been losing blood for 2 months, the hospital will not admit me when we all know I need it, and I dunno what to do. Yeah, and this is finals week – I don’t think I need to tell you how that has been going. My professors all understand, but they watch me like a criminal who is going to cheat when I leave the room.I’ll give you the things that will help again – I am 24, female, full Italian ethnicity, university student, semi-stressful lifestyle, normally very athletic when I am well. I have Anemia, Asthma, Crohn’s, Hypoglycemia, and have been formally diagnosed Fibromyalgia. Yes, I actually do have it, it wasn’t a wrong diagnosis. Trust me, I went through a million tests, and I have had VERY slight loss of bone since diagnosis.Thanks, to any and to all who help me! If you have this or know someone who does, I’m sure you know where I am coming from!Signid,DESPERATE
- A: Wow, I am so sorry to hear about your situation. The American health care system disgusts me. I don’t have any advice on how to get you the proper care that you need. However…I have a little advice on what might ease the pain slightly. No raw food diet !! OWWIE when you’re flaring. You need to stick to white bland food. Rice, pasta (rice pasta is best over wheat based), potatoes. NO SAUCES/OILS. Drink broth if you can’t handle solids. NO DAIRY. Drink water if your tummy can handle it. Hot water with ginger is good. You can try veggies–broccoli, cauliflower, carrots–but they must be very steamed. I suggest only eating ONE type for a day to see if it irritates your bum. I wish I could help you. I am so sorry. Also, if you are taking prednisone on your own be VERY careful. How much are you taking? YOU CAN NOT STOP TAKING IT!!! You must now taper it. If you were to suddenly stop taking it you could die. Please be careful. I’m going to post a link for you on the bottom of this page. It is a forum for sufferers of Ulcerative Colitis. There are many of us from all over the world. I’m hoping if you post that you’ll find some Americans that will have some information for you on how to get help in your state. Please go. http://www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=38&p=1&x=25&ord=ld
- Do you think a nurse’s job is hard or easy?
- Q: Don’t hurt yourself. All bleeding stops. Don’t lose your cool. Everybody has to die sometime. You can’t hurt a dead man. Never yell at the nurses (refer to Rule #1.) Don’t get excited about blood loss-unless it’s your own. Don’t hit patients or doctors-unless necessary. SEX isn’t everything, but it’s a hell-of-a-long-way ahead of anything that’s second. The patient will be all right if he is okay. The pain will go away when it stops hurting. Do what’s right. All fevers will eventually come back to normal on the way to room temperature. There’s always time sometime. Common things are common. A strawberry by any other name would be a heart with acne. Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong. If nothing has gone wrong, you’ve obviously don’t understand the situation. He who turns to run away must first sign out AMA. If you can keep your head among all this confusion, you obviously don’t understand the situation. Uncommon manifestations of common diseases are more common than are uncommon diseases. Death is a severe stage of shock, or shock is a pause in the act of dying. It doesn’t matter what you do as long as it’s right. WHY am I here? It sure feels good when it quits a “hurtin.” It looks more like it does now than it did. In medicine, always remember never to say always and never. In case of emergency call Dr. Wonderful or Earl. All bleeding is gross. If you can’t see it, it’s probably not there. Don’t vomit on the doctor! Remember, “Toast always falls jelly-side down.” P.I.D. doesn’t stand for “pink in dere.” If a patient has a catheter —he needs it. We’ve got to find those “two dudes” and stop them. Everyone gets treated exactly the same in here —until he pisses you off. The pit is a mixture of can do, can’t do, and why the hell not! To be right is only half the battle; to convince the patient is more difficult. Always do whatever you do best. Remember, the problem is always better than the X-ray looks. I was better, but I got over it.” Anonymous, found circulating at San

- Do vets carry malpractice insurance?
- Q: We at first vetoed the idea of suing our vet but now I’m reconsidering. Here’s what happened:Our rottie had Addison’s Disease. This was being very nicely controlled with daily pills and a shot monthly. Then we decided to have her spayed, as she was still intact. Everyone seemed to think it would be best for her not to go into heat or have an accidental preganancy, since we also have a male and they had been a breeding pair before her Addison’s diagnosis.We had her spayed. She seemed to do wonderfully during surgery with a little extra prednisone boost and lot of iv fluids. Then four weeks later she began bleeding a little thru her bottom. We took her to the vet as we were concerned something went wrong with the surgery and she was bleeding from torn stitches internally or something. He examined her and said her anal glands were clogged and swollen and expressed the fluid from them and said she’d be fine. One week later she began to vomit with some blood in it. I called the vet and he told me to come get some pills to stop the vomiting. He didn’t think it was serious. Said he didn’t need to see her and thought the pills would work but if they didn’t, then we’d have to see about doing some tests that would be uncomfortable at best for her such as endoscopsy etc. So we gave her the pills. She didn’t want to eat that day and still drank water and went outside to barf several more times. Then in the middle of the night she screamed and we ran to her and she was laying in a pool of blood. Blood was pouring out her rectum and she just screamed and cried and collapsed. The ER vet was clear across town over 30 minutes drive, and we were debating what to do, move her, cause her more pain or pray and hope, when she just yelped and then died.We are heartbroken. We did not have an autopsy done, as nothing will bring her back…we just had her cremated and are still seriously greiving 4 weeks later. We’re upset because we feel like we failed our girl, having the spay done. And I felt something was wrong when she began the first bleeding but we trusted our vet.Should we just let it go? We think we should just try to forget about it. But then I think the vet screwed up big time, #1 during the spay, #2 during the butt check and #3 the day before she died when he said he didn’t need to see her.Please don’t answer if you are going to slam me in any way, since I’m torn up enough as it is..anyone else who has an opinion based on knowledge or experience, please answer.Signed,Heartbroken mom of the sweetest rottie girl at Rainbow Bridge…..Nedra – yes, traumatized is a good way to put it. I’ve had other dogs and cats die and go to the Bridge but nothing like this. She was screaming in pain and I was helpless.And yeah, we thought at the time not to cremate her right away but we weren’t thinking of suing the vet. We are still in shock because we didn’t see that coming. Her Addison’s was very well controlled and we had regular lab tests to show it.
- A: I suspect vets may carry malpractice insurance, but you’d have a very hard time proving your case since you didn’t have a necropsy (not autopsy) done and also because you had her cremated. There could be other unexpected problems that weren’t apparent to the vet from what you were telling him and that weren’t apparent but were present at the time of her spay. When she drank water but then threw up, you probably should have called the vet and requested to have her seen again, but only hindsight is 20/20. It sounds to me like you did the best you could for her, and so did the vet, using what you told him and what was apparent to him during the surgery. It’s possible that she had some additional health problem like a cancer that wasn’t visible during the surgery, and had not given any symptoms till after her surgery. Your vet was attempting to not overcharge you or bring you in unnecessarily. Had you taken her in, she might well have still died. I had a pup who died while at the vet hospital being treated for worms, because she didn’t show any signs that told the vet she was dying of intussusception. Hopefully your pup met my 5mo old Sugar who died back in 2003, and they are playing as they wait for us at the bridge. Your girl is now out of pain. You’re whipping yourself with “what if’s” and that’s not being fair to yourself. You did the best you could, but I suspect your vet also did the best s/he could. I suspect you’re considering suing because the loss is so painful. But, in reality, I don’t think you have a viable case because you didn’t have a Necropsy done and had the body cremated. So you can’t prove malpractice and from your description of events, it’s not an obvious case of malpractice. It sounds like you both accidentally made the wrong decisions because you didn’t realize the seriousness of her condition. The vet would have seen her after she started bleeding had you said, you were too worried by it and while the vet was willing to prescribe meds over the phone, you wouldn’t be comfortable unless she was seen by the vet. That doesn’t make you horrible. You’re highly traumatized by the way she died in your arms. I will pray for you to find peace of heart and mind. Please also visit the rainbow bridge websites.
