It has been a long time for me, but here I go.
I have been suffering from bowel blockages and burning pain for months now. Nerve pain in the rectum that has become unbearable. Sat 7/16 I was at my end. I have not been eating solid food as it will not go through me. Even Ensures won't pass. I live with a heating pad on my belly and by butt in the evening. Sat the vomiting was so bad my wife got a message to my GI in Santa Rosa at Sutter that I need to be seen. Monday they called and said go to the Er immediately because of the vomiting. I told him I don't want to go to the Er, I was there three months ago, they treat me like I'm crazy. He insisted so I went. He said he would call ahead. I arrived at 3:30 pm, anyone who has been to Sutter Santa Rosa will know they do not have a waiting room. You sit outside on folding chairs. I sat outside until 8:30 pm when they go me indoors. They did the usual, Ct scan, blood work. Told me I didn't have a block and appeared fine. A couple small gallstones. Not the issue I told them, it is lower abdomen burning and cramping on my right side where it always is and sever nerve pain in my rectum, like I have never had before. They said maybe small infection, put me on a low antibiotic. 26 hours in the emergency room, they got me a bed upstairs. I kept asking where my Gi was , they kept trying. Last night 7/19 at 5 pm a Gi came to my room,( Dr Batista) who has never treated me. Told me I am not sick, I do not have a block, and the pain I am feeling I have always had. The staple that I feel in my rectum, is from my original surgery, nothing they can do about that. Every time he asked me a question he cut me off during my answer. He was there a couple minutes, rolled his eyes at me and said they will scope me in the morning. Hell No! I did not let him touch me. We filed a complaint with the hospital and I demanded to be released. Why would I let this man touch me, who tells me there is nothing wrong with me.
I feel bad for the nurses, because they really tried, they are not the issue.
So I came home. No medications talked about, no antibiotics,,, since I am not sick, and have not eaten since Sunday( a few potato chips) maybe one scrambled egg and some apple juice. That was 11;00am this morn, I am ready to vomit now, it won't pass.
I know it is a strangulation of scar tissue, I have had this before. I am told "no it's not"
So I have messages out to all my doctors begging to get me back to UCSF San Francisco. Lets see. No word yet.
I am at my wits end, and needed to vent.
