Scared Me To Death....

I have so much I want to say and no way can I get it all out. In the past two months I have been lead to believe I might have had a heart attack and another was just around the corner, I was a diabetic, and probably had cervical cancer. All of this false hood resulted in multiple pre-op tests and one gynecologist said he would not touch me with a ten foot pole.....and I should only have surgery in a center of excellence with a trauma room. Now two months later and four specialists later and four two hour all day trips to Springfield, Illinois and I am now told my heart is fine with blood pressure of 120/70. Yes I am overweight and 63{old} but so far no cancer and for sure no D/C which they were" preoping "me for in the first place.

Could a couple of small town doctors saw a good set of insurances(medicare and Cigna) and decided to put the worst on the results and see if anyone bought it? Check these out
one chest Xray
one lateral xray
one MRI lower lumbar
blood full blood work
one sonogram external
one sonogram internal
one set of bending Xrays
3 pelvic exams
and these specialists, spinal surgeon, 3 gynecologists, heart surgeon, general practitioner and a movement disorder specialist.

I went to the last gynecologist Monday with two sacks of med one a gallon ziploc with meds I use to take and a pint ziploc with what I take now after two months of weening myself of of all my PD meds.....He actually is the second doctor to applaud me for doing this ...I WAS EXTREMELY OVER MEDICATED and exhausted.....

This has been a wild two months and though it is not over yet...it almost is and I shudder to think I could have had a D/C for nothing......I would truthfully say the system let me down....love pokie too
