Right now I am pretty upset at my Dr. In late 2005 I was diagnosed with diverticulosis. http://digestive.niddk.nih.gov/ddiseases/pubs/diverticulosis/ The first time it flared up (when I was diagnosed with it) the pain started and I was unable to move because I was in soooooo much pain, within 3-5 hrs. I ended up in the hospital for 2-3 days on intraveinous (sp?) antibiotics. I went home with 2 pills that are so strong that it can damage your stomach - so needless to say for 14 days I was more nauseous than I have ever been in my life. 8 months later it flared up again, but gradually and I knew what it was soooo fast that I called and got into the Dr right away - I just ended up on the 2 pills and that was it. I changed a lot about what I drank and that seems to help tremendously. I stopped drinking coffee, I stopped drinking any soda and I drank LOTS and LOTS of water. I however, did not change much about my eating habits......... Well Saturday afternoon I started to feel like it was bothering me again. Guess what I started doing again recently.........Drinking coffee in the morning (about 4-5 months ago) and started to have a soda every now and then (started that again abut 2 months ago). Well, well, well..............guess what I started to drink less of ...........yup.......WATER. So ya Saturday, I start getting this weird pain - but I was too busy with the new filly to completely care about it. But I did grab my trusty bottle of water but I did not give it that good of a try. Sunday I had a fever and was in so much pain I could not do anyting for very long.............but I could tell it was not progressing so fast that I was fearful of waiting to see the Dr on Monday. I called and left a message st the Dr's office at about 5am this morning.............did they call me back? NO!!!! Did I have to call them and inquire as to what they thought, or if they were going to perscribe me meds...........or what? YES!!! I finally called them today at 10 am to see what was up. Well, they were busy...........and the Dr will not perscribe any meds until he see me.............WELL THEN, WHEN THE FUCK WERE YOU GOING TO TELL ME THIS?!?!? I was just a bit put off............. Thank God, yesterday, I drank about 6-7 bottles of water, Drank hot tea and some juice and only had one meal..........the fluids help me - why I'm not sure -but drinking that much water helped. (and staying on Tylenol). So, tomorrow, When I see my Dr at 11:30 am - I am going to feel quite comfortable inquiring why - he thought it was ok to let me go for this long without anything................he is the one who is always saying how this could rupture and could cause septics...............ya......me tomorrow? I'll be an ASS. Because I know that will be the LAST time this fucker ever sees me again.
