Circle Of Crap

Today I went to a lung specialist to just get reassurance that there is no underlining issue to why I keep getting infections of all sorts. I know the Crohn's Meds have lowered my immunity. Working in schools exposes me to all sorts of things. Basically at the end of the appointment he's just sending me for more pointless tests. And he didn't exactly listen to anything I had to say. He had a horrible time explaining things too.

Just so annoyed and sick of not being listened to.

I hate when they just can't tell me shit all and just send me down a road of crap. I've already done these tests before.😔

I am sorry. I would go for a second opinion.

I know it's frustrating to repeat the same stuff again but I'd do it. Sometimes in the medical field the 1st test is to establish what's called a baseline, they then compare consecutive tests to your personal baseline to see how your body is progressing. Like Ron said though, get a 2nd opinion if you don't agree. Remember that the Doctors work for you. You pay them. You are in control of everything that happens to your body.
