  • I DON'T GET MY FEELINGS HURT, I LIKE YOUR OPINIONS, ACTUALLY. DIDN'T STEP ON MY TOES AT ALL. I MAY NOT HAVE SAID IT YET BUT MY PM INJECTOR DID MISS AND PLACED TO BOLUS OVER THE RIGHT SIDE INSTEAD OF THE LEFT. WHEN I ASKED HIM, BECAUSE I SAW THE PICTURE WHILE HE WAS DOING IT, HE SAID,"SORRY, I TRIED FOR THE LEFT, BUT I THINK YOU WERE POSITIONED WRONG ON THE TABLE". HE SAID IT SHOULD SURROUND THE WHOLE AREA ANYHOW. WHETHER THAT WAS TRUE OR NOT I DON'T KNOW. WHAT DO YOU THINK? I HOPE THIS NEXT ONE IS "RIGHT ON". TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK, I'M GLAD TO KNOW.
    YOUR FRIEND IN PAIN AND HOPE,

  • Hello PnMgSt,

    Thank you for your understanding and "listening".

    "HE SAID,"SORRY, I TRIED FOR THE LEFT, BUT I THINK YOU WERE POSITIONED WRONG ON THE TABLE"" OMG!!! he obviously did not and does not know what he is doing. That is very troubling. There is NO WAY he could have been using a fluoroscope, NO WAY, or he would have seen EXACTLY where he was. Such errors are a lack of checking and rechecking. It HURTS to know what you went through.

    "HE SAID IT SHOULD SURROUND THE WHOLE AREA ANYHOW." THAT PnMgSt, is untrue. From what my PM doc has told me, if the medication is placed in the correct exact location it moves very very little. How else can the medication remain active for 4 months in my case. If it spread out there is no way it could be effective for long.

    AHHHhhh how I wish you and so many others could esperience the incredible knowledge, exprtise and precison of my PM doc, Dr. K.

    PnMgSt, everytime I read through your posts and MANY of others I'm more convinced, that in May I will fly like a bird 1400 miles away and get another ESI from Dr. K. The cost of the flight will be "minimal" knowing I can have confidence in Dr. K getting the medication to exactly and precisely the location it needs to go.

    It bothers me to no end that the AMA, hospitals, etc. "protect" their incompetent doctors who have caused life threatening errors.

    It is not just in the medical field, it is all around us as I'm sure you have experienced. I always maintained that in the building where I worked, you could fire 50% of the staff, the worthless ones, on Firday, and on Monday return to work with half the staff and no one would even know there was a change.

    Okay, times up.

    Thanks for permitting me to "share".
