I can joke about it now, but at the time it was deadly serious....

Ok, I'll drag My carcass around. Gah, for the moment though since it's Sunday, I'll just take It easy....

Now where's that 6XL Powered Exoskeleton that I ordered? ;)

In the closet, guarded by Grace...


But I expect she will let her human have it due to his current health situation




(edit - ps, this is one of the few times I really hope it is just flu)

I am, of course I can call the Doctors Office on Monday morning and see if any lab results are in and can I go to a GI Doc, but I can't force them, they can tell Me to get lost, that they see nothing wrong.

I said I will, I just have to hear what they tell Me, their in control, not Me, sheesh....

Lighten up please, I can only go see the My doc, then their in charge, they can tell Me yes or no, I've actually been told once that if they don't see anything, that they won't do anything. Just cause I went to the lab and they got a sample doesn't mean anything, if nothing is found they have the right, to tell Me to go home....

Cause I have an HMO(Health Maintenance Organization) known as IEHP(Inland Empire Health Plan)....

Bottom rung Doctors is what I get, Good ones won't see Medicaid patients cause of money, or should I say the lack of said.

Even the Emergency Room Docs are better...

Vic, if you are seriously ill the only avenue is the emergency room. Otherwise .....................

Vic, you started this thread with the statement that you thought you could be seriously ill, requiring treatment. As such we have all responded accordingly. But when you digress into technical details about your computers, stuff about star wars characters, or other side-tracks, it causes confusion as to how seriously you are actually taking it all.

You seem to be approaching this on the basis that you expect them to tell you, there is nothing wrong, go away. I'm not au fait with the USA medical support plans i.e. Medicare or Medicaid, but it does appear that you have access in some way to have what treatments you need, for whatever maybe wrong.

Uli, I, and many others only have your best interests and welfare at heart Vic, but it's up to you to stand your ground, repeat the symptoms, and insist upon being fully examined, a laissez-faire attitude is not the best way to proceed. Please keep us informed of the medical situation.

Uli, Chris, I don't know a damned thing, so far, I've done whats been asked of Me by the powers that be. If this, if that....

The emergency room won't do tests beyond like they already have, they'll just tell Me to go talk to My Doctor(thats My experience), some Doctors like to say some are hypochondriacs if they find nothing wrong with someone who keeps coming back over and over again and HMOs like to limit the amount of tests and/or treatment to whatever is cheapest.

The more I hear about HMOs, the happier I am I don't have one.

I just called the Doctors office, they won't have any results until Tuesday, if the results are abnormal they would want Me to come in to talk to the Doctor, a cancer screening would also have to be talked to then with said Doctor.

Later.

Oh da pain, between gas bubbles and a couple of painful toes that I'd stubbed months ago, it was worse when I had shoes on, a guy can't get a good nap, then the house went boom or rather someone dropped a bomb over near Fort Irwin....

So much for the peace and quiet of the high dessert, eh, Vic?
I'm in the flight path for the Visalia airport, and also on the path from NAS Lemoore to NAS Fallon Nv. Even at high altitude, I can hear the F/A-18s coming home in the evening, even with windows closed.

At least the Army stops when darkness falls, well they do need their practice or they'd be green, painful gas bubbles usually mean a run for the latrine, I'll be glad when all of this is over, I really detest being sick as do most....

Did you manage to get your test results?


Were they clear, or are you going to have to more tests??
