Please pray for my leg
April 1, 2014 | 2ndDivisionVet

Posted on 04/01/2014 4:19:21 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Bad infection in my right leg. Went to the local VA Clinic a week ago and the physician insisted that I be rushed to the local emergency room to check for a blood clot. Hours later - no blood clot found, so ER doctor prescribed two antibiotics. Have been on them for a week now and while they've tamped the infection down, they aren't defeating it. So I've pleaded with the VA Clinic to please give me the antibiotics that have successfully fought it in the past. I'm still waiting to hear back. Meanwhile, lots of pain.

Cipro, it usually works. Hope you get whatever you need. It is a crap shoot anymore. I was in the hospital in February. You have to beg. Most of us know what works, but getting these new doctor types to understand that is rough.

Just about every doctor I’ve met thinks the rest of us are as stupid as a box of rocks. Heck, I met this guy when he was a college freshman and he had “the attitude” about us civilians.

I had that, and so did a couple of my friends. It can take some time for the antibiotics to completely knock it out. Hang in there.

Praying the doctors treat this with the proper level of seriousness, and get you some effective medication. They’re so busy panicking about drug-resistant strains developing at-large they’re forgetting some infections need strong medicine now. You have to keep on their backs.

It’s like they’re not treating just you anymore, but the whole world at once. It’s not a welcome development.

2nd D — I pray for your recovery.

In the meantime, suggest you call your Congressperson’s local office — even if it’s a Dem — and and raise hell about the very real chance that VA neglect will cost you your leg or your life, neither of which will look sound on the news. Make a specific request for what you want their office to do (contact your local VA immediately and get them off their sorry butts NOW.) Give Dr’s name and phone, and the med you need. Your taxes pay the staff to provide “constituent service”; they might actually do something. Wishing you the best.
