Thank you for the advice. I can try putting a little away each month into my savings account. I also save all the change and have a bowl full of silver, but it's not even half of what I would need right now. The surgeon that I saw is not the one who did my surgery, and didn't even have to look at my pouch to figure out what was wrong.
The surgeon who did to my surgeries, I didn't want to see, because he doesn't listen to me and blew me off with my concerns. I don't even know how long I have been suffering with this, but it is at LEAST since this past June, which was when the pain started in earnest.
I definitely plan to take all of the antibiotic. I don't want to take any chances. I can't deal with that pain anymore, I couldn't even move it was so bad before I got the medicine and found that Tylenol helped.
I don't really know how to handle some of this to be honest. The surgeon filled me up with more bullsnot than I've ever dealt with before. Told me that I'd be perfectly fine, ought to be playing basketball, heal completely in a week. He also had results from a CT Scan from the same hospital that said something happened that he said was impossible to happen.
None of it was true. I don't trust him even if he did save my life. He doesn't listen to me and now I'm stuck with him. I was also recently told that people scuba dive with conditions like mine. I should be fine. From the time I got that stupid flu shot that triggered the UC that's nearly killed me dozens of times in the last ten years or so, and even now, people just disregard, underestimate and brush off everything. I don't mean to rant or whine, but it does get a little wearing when no one will listen but for those that have seen it for themselves..
I really do appreciate the advice, and will try to keep up on everything.
